  • The last #pureetcr event of the season takes place at the Pau-Arnos circuit in France
  • Three #cupra drivers have a mathematical chance of winning the title: Mattias Ekström, Mikel Azcona and Jordi Gené
  • CUPRA has won three of the four rounds so far this season and leads the manufacturers' standings

The inaugural season of the #pureetcr, the first ever electric touring car championship, is coming to an end. The Pau-Arnos circuit in France hosts the fifth and final round of the season next weekend, and three drivers from the #cupra X Zengő Motorsport team are in with a chance of winning the title at the wheel of the #cupra e-Racer.

After becoming the "King of the Weekend" in Spain and being on the podium in all of the four events so far, Mattias Ekström goes into the final race of the season in first place in the standings. The Swedish driver has a 29-point lead over his closest challenger, Frenchman Jean-Karl Vernay.

"We go into the last event of the season in first position in the championship with a small lead, but that doesn't mean anything, because there are up to five drivers with a chance of winning the title. We have to be at our best again, because the battle, as in each of the previous events, will be very close. I have never raced here before, but I am looking forward to my first laps in the #cupra e-Racer there," said Ekström, who leads the drivers' championship.

Spaniards Mikel Azcona and Jordi Gené are also strong contendants for the title. Mikel, King of the Weekend in Italy last June and in Hungary, is third, 35 points behind the leader. On the other hand, Gené, one of the most consistent drivers of the season, arrives at the final round in fourth place in the standings, 61 points behind Mattias.

"In France the driver’s title is at stake and I will fight until the last lap," said Mikel Azcona. "We are also fighting for the manufacturers' championship, so every point will be important to win the title. The #cupra e-Racer and all of #cupra X Zengő Motorsport have shown that they deserve to win it."
