The team returned to Porto for rounds 13 and 14 of the WTCC with the car and engine issues fixed. After the extended break, Tom was eager to be back racing. Free practice 1 on the Saturday morning was an opportunity to double check the work carried out, and for Tom to get back to race pace driving. A few changes were made for Free Practice 2 and Tom was back on the pace. Lap after lap he was getting quicker and on his 9th and final lap he posted a time of 2:08:415s which placed him ninth overall. This was a great effort and things were looking good for qualification.
