Ghermandi joins TCR Europe for the season finale in Barcelona

Ghermandi joins TCR Europe for the season finale in Barcelona

Giacomo Ghermandi will make his maiden appearance in TCR Europe this weekend at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit for the series’ season finale.


The Italian driver is a rookie in TCR having joined the category this year to race a CUPRA for LEMA Racing in the TCR Eastern Europe championship. He claimed his best result – a fourth place – in his very first race at the Slovakia Ring and was classified 11th in the final standings. After the first four events Ghermandi swapped the CUPRA for a new CUPRA Leon Competición, the same car he will drive in Barcelona.


“This has been an apprenticeship season for me, and I improved race after race. In TCR Eastern Europe I came close to finishing on the podium a few times and last week I battled for the pole position in the Coppa Italia Turismo at Monza. I can't wait to compete in Barcelona with the TCR Europe drivers and compare myself with professionals such as Mikel Azcona and Tom Coronel who are my favourite drivers. I can't wait to be on the track and fight for the best possible results; the car is fast, the team is prepared and I'm ready! For next year, we are evaluating different options: racing again in TCR Eastern Europe, staying at home to compete in TCR Italy or making the leap to TCR Europe,”Ghermandi said.
