Touring Car legend Fabrizio Giovanardi will make his maiden appearance in the TCR Europe series the upcoming weekend at Monza. He will race a Romeo Ferraris-built Alfa Romeo Giulietta run by Team Mulsanne.
Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager, commented: “I was thrilled by the idea of entering Fabrizio in the event. Seven months ago at Monza, we began our cooperation for the WTCR programme and now having him at the wheel of one of our cars in our home event is something very special. I believe the track suits the Giulietta well as it was proved in last year’s TCR International Series. We have recently scored the first points in the World Cup and two podiums in TCR Italy, let’s hope we keep on this way.”
There are three European crowns in the long list of Touring Car titles won by Giovanardi who raced Alfa Romeo cars for most of his racing career.
“I’m enthusiastic about racing again at Monza in such a competitive series like TCR Europe. This is the opportunity to try and harvest the fruits of the hard work we have done throughout the season. Monza is Romeo Ferraris’ home circuit, and not far away from Alfa Romeo’s historical factory. The fans have always cheered for me here and this gives me great motivation. I promise to put in a show to entertain the spectators!” said Giovanardi.
