While waiting for his WTCC Chevrolet RML Cruze car to be delivered at ROAL Motorsport, the Dutchman accepted an invitation from Extend Motorsport to race in a Super 2000 BMW 320si car.

After claiming pole position in qualifying, setting the new lap record for 2.0-litre touring cars of 1:48.7, Coronel won the race and improved the lap record further to 1:48.4.

“It was a nice challenge and a great opportunity to regain the feeling again in view of the WTCC season. I loved to get back at the wheel of the 6-cylinder BMW that I have successfully raced to many times in the past,” a delighted Coronel commented.
