ETCR: Martin crowned King of the Weekend on home soil


Maxime Martin became the first non-CUPRA EKS driver to be crowned King of the Weekend after an emphatic display by the Romeo Ferraris driver at his home Circuit Zolder for Race BE, the fourth round of the FIA ETCR eTouring Car World Cup.

Martin secured a perfect 100 points over the course of the weekend, run as part of Circuit Zolder Electrified with FIA ETCR showcasing its support for Racing Pride at the Belgian track. The Belgian ended his faultless weekend with victory in the Pool FURIOUS DHL Super Final and moves to third place in the series standings.

Second, after the Zolder King of the Weekend was CUPRA EKS driver Adrien Tambay, who moves back into the driver standings lead over team-mate Mattias Ekström. Tambay came out top in the Pool FAST DHL Super Final and is now 21 points ahead of Ekström.
