2014.08.04.

Zengő driver Norbert Michelisz finished second and seventh at the two WTCC Argentina races on Sunday, confirmed zengomotorsport.hu. The Hungarian team and driver of the World Tour Car Championship series enjoyed a long-awaited success as both struggled to find form this season in their new Honda.

Michelisz began the first race with a great start, as the Zengő driver was already in second position in the first corner of the Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo. Throughout the race Michelisz did his best to battle off the advances of the Citroens, he even made contact with Yvan Muller, but in the end they failed to pass the Hungarian driver. The Zengő team was euphoric, but had to wait with the celebrations as the second race was just minutes away.

Norbert Michelisz lined up in the seventh grid position for the second race, which he managed to keep after the start, while Robert Huff struggled to keep his surprise lead in the Lada. The Citroens eventually caught up with the leaders and Norbi as well, but in the end he managed to secure the seventh place. With these results Norbert Michelisz is sixth in the echampionship.
