Mexican driver Jorge Colin showed to more than 15,000 people all the experience he earned on his career by winning the race 2 of the beginning of the 2013 Mexican Super Touring Car season on the Hermanos Rodriguez Racetrack.
In a dramatic finish of the race, Colin and the 2012 Champion Roberto Fernandez of the URREA Tools team came to the last lap by a 0.024 gap and after crossing the 4.053km Circuit, all the drama came on the last curve, the famous Peraltada, where Colin used his experience and excellent car setting to leave Fernandez on second place and reach his second victory of the 2013 season. Colin takes the lead of the championship standings with 200 points.
‘It’s been one of the most competitive races of my career, at the end I get 2 victories and couldn’t be happier. My team gave me a great car and Fernandez gave a great race too, the last lap was so exciting! I know I am in good shape to fight for the championship’, said Jorge Colin.
‘The race was won by the best driver, Jorge drove excellent and I couln’t defeat him. The public enjoyed the show. Now I have time to get ready for the next race, I’ll work to beat him’ said Fernandez, the 2012 Champion on the URREA Tools BMW.
