At the helm of the No. 5 Honda Civic Norbert posted a personal fastest lap of 1:46,916 minutes, earning him a top 10 spot in Friday's official Test session at the infamous Marrakech street circuit, exactly two seconds behind championship leader José María López in the all-dominating Citroën C-Elysée.
But for Norbert and the Zengő crew this first session was all about familiarizing themselves again with the difficulties of racing on a non-permanent race track. "Driving here is a big challenge", says Norbert. "The walls are close and each small mistake can result in big damage to the car. It is a very dangerous circuit. Nevertheless, we have high ambitions for this race weekends and we want to achieve good results."
Norbert and the MOL Group Zengő Motorsport team will take to the track again on Saturday for two Free Practice sessions and the Qualifying before taking part in the two races on Sunday.
