WTCC plans tribute to Leslie

David LeslieThe World Touring Car Championship will pay tribute to David Leslie, who was killed in a plane crash last weekend at the age of 54, before Sunday's first race at Puebla in Mexico.

Leslie raced against many of the top drivers in the WTCC - including three-times world champion Andy Priaulx and SEAT trio Yvan Muller, Rickard Rydell and Gabriele Tarquini - during his long career in the British Touring Car Championship.

Ray Mallock, boss of the RML with which David Leslie had long been associated with, is also in Mexico running Chevrolet's WTCC campaign.

He was also a popular figure around the paddock through his duties as commentator for Eurosport's coverage of the WTCC.

The minute's silence will be held at 1205 local time once the grid has been assembled for the first race of the weekend.
