Norbert Michelisz and the Zengő Motorsport team are all smiles after a tough but very rewarding first race-day of the 2015 FIA WTCC season at Termas de Rio Hondo in Argentina.

A very unfortunate start to the 2015 FIA WTCC season for Norbert Michelisz and the Zengő Motorsport team: After having meticulously prepared the No. 5 Honda Civic for the first qualifying session of the year, a rare technical failure prevented the Hungarian outfit from shining on track as on his first lap out of the pits Norbert lost the front left wheel. He was able to bring back the car but had to stop nevertheless.

It was a busy morning for Norbert Michelisz and the Zengö Motorsport team at Termas de Rio Hondo as the Hungarian outfit used the two 30-minute Free Practice sessions to fine-tune the set-up of the No. 5 Honda Civic ahead of the first qualifying of the 2015 FIA WTCC season.

The first competitive outing of the 2015 FIA WTCC season proved to be a tricky one for Norbert Michelisz and the MOL Group Zengő Motorsport team as conditions were difficult on and off track.
