Chevrolet confirms driver line up for 2011
"To confirm our three drivers was the obvious choice"
Chevrolet and RML today announced the driver line-up for the 2011 FIA World Touring Car Championship, which remains unchanged: Rob Huff, Alain Menu and Yvan Muller will be the drivers at the wheel of the new Cruze 1.6 turbo cars that will defend the colors of Chevrolet in the world’s top series for touring cars.
Chevrolet Motorsport director Eric Nève explained: “Stability has always been one of the key features of our WTCC programme. To confirm our three drivers was the obvious choice, as we really have a terrific trio and Rob, Alain and Yvan have done a great job this year, on and off the track. We are happy to make this announcement today, as it will certainly give our drivers and the entire team a psychological boost ahead of the decisive final stint of the championship as well as extra motivation to carry on the intense program of development of the new Cruze that has already begun.”
Muller, Huff and Menu are currently first, fourth and sixth in the Drivers’ Championship.
