Huff looking forward to Argentina debut

Rob Huff hopes to impress when the World Touring Car Championship heads to Argentina for the first time this weekend
Reigning champion, Rob Huff, has so far had a respectable season as the World Touring Car Championship now hits the 'fly-away' races starting this weekend at the all-new 4.8km Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina.

The former RML Chevrolet drivers positive results include; eight top-five finishes, including a single win in race two at Hungary and two podiums, he also has a fastest lap to his name. This weekend he seeks further strong results to overhaul James Nash and climb into the overall top three in the championship table.

'Huffy' says he has 'regrouped' over the six-week summer break and cannot wait to get back in a touring car.

“Having regrouped during the six-week break I'm very much looking forward to getting my head back into the WTCC, said Huff. “We've never been to Argentina before so it will be a race against time to home in on the perfect setup during practice, but I feel very much at home in my ALL-INKL.COM Munnich Motorsport SEAT Leon now.

“I need to score some good points at the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo to consolidate my championship position and close in on the top three. I said when I joined Rene Munnich's team that if we finished in the top five it will have been a very successful year. But we've scored good points in the last two weekends and, while it's impossible to catch Yvan (Muller) at the top, second place is still within reach.”

As if the pressure of bringing podiums home wasn't enough, the current top placed SEAT driver, has been linked with the second seat at Citroen in recent times. The French manufacturer are looking to tie things up quickly going into the 2014 preseason which starts after the final race in Macau, late November.
