Guernsey racing driver Andy Priaulx finished fifth on his WTCR debut in Morocco, after nine years away from World Touring Cars.

The three-time world champion had been on course for a podium in race one in Marrakech before suffering contact from behind.

In the Link & Co of new team Cyan Racing, Priaulx then picked up 13th-placed finishes in races two and three after qualifying 17th.

Priaulx's team-mate Thed Björk tops the drivers' standings after the opening weekend having secured a first ever win for a Chinese manufacturer in an FIA-sanctioned World Cup event.

Priaulx, who sits 10th in WTCR, is also racing for Ford in the current World Endurance Championship 'super season', with races at Spa and Le Mans still to come over the next three months.

The World Touring Car Cup moves to Hungary next at the end of April, concluding in Malaysia in December.
