Slovak Touring Car star Mat’o Homola will take part in the 2019 TCR Europe series at the wheel of a Hyundai i30 N car entered by Target Competition.
"The team is very motivated and has the top goals, so I'm really happy to be a part of it," he said. "The atmosphere in the team is simply amazing and I feel like I'm joining a family and a winning team again. Additionally, I'm also happy to announce that I won't be going to the races alone, as my ex-engineer Jaro Krajči is coming back to guide me. We share great memories together and he was there for me when I had a lot of success in my race career."
Despite his young age, Homola has built himself a solid reputation as a Touring Car race winner, with victories in the FIA European Touring Car Cup, the TCR International Series and, last year, in the FIA WTCR. His TCR experience includes seasons in SEAT, Opel and Peugeot cars, while he’s now switching to Hyundai.
“The Hyundai i30 N TCR is a dream came true. Last year I was able to keep some of these cars behind, but most of the times they were in front of me… Now I will be driving one of these beasts! The season looks very promising and I feel in my bones that I will be able to fight for the victory! Last year my goal was to be in the top ten, which looked like a mission impossible several times. Now we've got it all for fighting for the European title!”
