Nicole Drought Stars on maiden ITCC drive
Rising star, Nicole Drought took her debut ITCC (Irish Touring Car Championship) win at Mondello Park last weekend.
Fresh from a Porsche GT3 test at Le Castellet, Nicole entered the opening rounds of the ITCC in her Honda Integra, competing in the Production Class. Having been quickest in testing, she qualified on pole position, half a second clear of her competitors. Contact in race one sent her off track but she charged back to second place with fastest lap and in race two, she dominated, crossing the line some 8 seconds ahead of her nearest challenger. Nicole now leads the championship as the series heads north to Bishopscourt in County Down for rounds 3 & 4 on May the 8th.
Nicole Drought: “I’m over the moon to take my first ITCC win. Bar the contact in race one, this is pretty much the perfect start to the season. A big thanks to ABR Motorsport for running the car all weekend and especially Jake Byrne, who helped me hugely with data analysis.”
