CV Performance Group fights for DTM Trophy title

William Tregurtha enters the season finale as a hunter

As one of the title favorites, the CV Performance Group tackled the second to last race of the DTM Trophy last weekend. The British driver William Tregurtha delivered a strong performance and goes into the final title fight being only three points behind.

Now it is time for the DTM Trophy. At the Hockenheimring, the first serve of a doubleheader for the season finale took place. With the British driver William Tregurtha, the Mercedes AMG Customer Racing Team was once again one of the big favorites. Also at the start was rookie Matias Salonen from Finland.

With second place in Saturday's race, William fought his way back to the championship lead and was in a good mood. "Today's race went very well," he says happily on the winner's podium. The round on Sunday became a thriller. William missed pole position with the Mercedes-AMG GT4 only by the blink of an eye. In the race, however, he was involved in a collision immediately after the start and found himself at the end of the field. Despite a badly damaged car, he fought his way back into the top five in just a few laps. Then it started to rain, and the race was interrupted. During the break, the team showed a strong performance and repaired the badly impacted Mercedes again.

After the restart, William continued his incredible drive, missing out on victory by just six tenths of a second.

"What a race. We were clearly the fastest car in the field and deserved the victory. The team did an awesome job and showed that we all want to win the title. I am now three points behind in the final and will fully attack at the Norisring. Our goal is to be at the top on Sunday evening," William says highly motivated.

The weekend was also eventful for rookie Matias Salonen. In his first outing at the Hockenheimring, he already showed his possibilities on Saturday with seventh place and had the chance of a place on the podium in Sunday's race. However, a defective radiator hose forced him to give up. "That was a pity, I gained a lot of experience and had the chance for a very good result on Sunday. The whole team is doing a strong job, I am looking forward to the final," Matias was very confident despite the setback on Sunday.

The DTM Trophy will continue as early as next Friday. Then the Norisring in Nuremberg is the only street track on the racing calendar. In small Monaco, the CV Performance Group's first sports car year is all about winning the renowned racing series.
