After successfully putting Spain on the ETS map last year when the race marked the first ever international event to be held on the track, Asoger RC welcomes back the world’s best touring car drivers as the championship makes the popular switch from indoor carpet to outdoor asphalt racing. Built in 2005, with local government funding, in terms of layout the track remains unchanged from last year with the only difference from 12-months ago being the infield has changed from green to freshly painted blue. Situated in the city of Getafe, which is located 26km south of Madrid, the large track is both quick and flowing making it a hit with drivers. Taking advantage of a delayed start to Friday’s practice caused by overnight rain, the World famous voice of RC Scotty Ernst got to sample the track thanks to Henrik Heitsch, summing up his laps afterwards by declaring it ‘one of the nicest flowing tracks I have ever driven’. In terms of size the track is 318 metres long, something Destiny drivers Jin Sawada and Yugo Nagashima are finding very alien given its scale compared to what they are used to racing on in Japan.
