Lynk & Co Cyan Racing Calls for Action Over WTCR Tyre Safety Situation

0 2,727

Lynk & Co Cyan Racing experienced further tyre safety issues during the FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) practice sessions ahead of qualifying at Vallelunga in Italy, just as during the round at the Nürburgring in May, which was cancelled due to tyre safety concerns.

The Lynk & Co cars of Cyan Racing experienced tyre delaminations during the first test and practice session at Vallelunga, including a front-left puncture for Yvan Muller at 225 km/h in a crash at Turn 2.

The Lynk & Co 03 TCR of Cyan Racing is by far the heaviest car in the WTCR field, running 80 kilos more than the Hyundai Elantra N TCR of points leader Mikel Azcona.

The current assessment of Cyan Racing is that the weight levels and supplied tyres make for an impossible equation for the team to drive a total race distance safely.

Cyan Racing has decided to participate in qualifying on Saturday afternoon after running qualifying simulations during the final practice session, concluding that shorter distances are possible to perform.

However, Cyan Racing calls for the FIA WTCR stakeholders to take immediate and necessary actions so that the team and its drivers can take part in the WTCR races at Vallelunga safely.

The team will decide whether to participate in the two races on Sunday, pending further action from the championship stakeholders.
