Mikel Azcona may not have been in the final reckoning for King of the Weekend status at PURE ETCR Race SP, but the Spaniard did leave with something to smile about as he claimed the TAG Heuer Best Lap Trophy at MotorLand Aragón.
The CUPRA X Zengo Motorsport driver was victorious in the previous event at Vallelunga, and repeated his early form by winning his Battles in Rounds 1 and 2.
That gave him first choice of starting position for the Time Trial A, which determines the Best Lap Trophy winner. He chose to go first and benefitted from ideal track conditions to set the fastest lap.
His 1m58.514s time, which was for a lap and a half of the 2.6km MotorLand Aragón layout, put him more than half a second clear of Jean-Karl Vernay; the Hyundai Motorsport N having topped the Pool B session.
“Just like in Vallelunga, we’ve proved we were fast in Spain,” said Azcona. “I’m not happy about the way the weekend ended and going out of my SuperFinal, but I know we have good speed for the races that are coming.”
