Two Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR by Romeo Ferraris will be at the start of the new global series for touring cars, the FIA WTCR 2018.
The Opera-based manufacture will enter, through its satellite teams, two cars that will contest all 10 rounds of the World Cup within the FIA calendar, which will kick-off in Morocco (7-8 April) and come to an end at Macau (15-18 November). Taking the legacy of the WTCC, the new series adopts the rules and car models of the TCR, which have become the reference in the touring car racing, thus allowing also the Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR by Romeo Ferraris to be present on the starting grid.
Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager
“We are delighted to announce the entry of our cars in the FIA WTCR. For our company, it is a big step forward, as after two seasons in the TCR International, we will enter a FIA-sanctioned world series, providing technical assistance to our cars. The proposition is certainly very interesting and we rely a lot on the WTCR promoters and organisers to deliver a winning package. The introduction of TCR cars will certainly raise the level of both the competition and the show on track, in a series that has always attracted huge numbers of spectators and viewers".
