In addition to his already announced participation in the WTCR, Tom Coronel will also embark on a full-season campaign in TCR Europe. Just like in the FIA World Cup, the Dutchman will be racing an Audi RS 3 LMS run by Belgian team Comtoyou Racing.
“Great, another seven weekends with two races each. The schedule is filling up nicely again,” Coronel makes no secret of his anticipation for the European programme. “Last year, I was the driver with the most TCR race participations worldwide and I certainly wouldn’t mind if that is the case again this year!”
In the past years, Tom Coronel already combined his WTCR participation with a campaign in the European series in which he scored some podium results.
“So, when I was involved in negotiations with my regular partners for this year’s WTCR, many of them said: ‘And what about the European series? That is a good programme as well, isn’t it?’ All parties showed their enthusiasm and that is how we finalised this campaign as well. Of course, I am very happy with it!”
Coronel will also be racing with starting number 32 in both series, referring to his 32nd season in motorsport.
