PMO Motorsport and Santiago Urrutia made a victorious TCR South America debut at Riviera in Uruguay this weekend with the Lynk & Co 03 TCR.

Santiago Urrutia, who is racing for Lynk & Co Cyan Racing in the FIA World Touring Car Cup, claimed pole position and headed the field in the first race from lights to flag.

Team-mate Pablo Otero made it a PMO Motorsport double podium in third position.

"I am very happy to have secured a home and debut win in TCR South America. While we had some issues in the second race, the Lynk & Co 03 TCR and the team has delivered at the very top after very short preparations. This weekend has been excellent and a heartfelt thanks to everyone in the team," said Santiago Urrutia.

The second race saw Santiago Urrutia fighting his way up through the field to a podium position until he had to retire due to a technical issue.

Pablo Otero meanwhile finished the second race in fourth position.
