WSC President’s statement on Target Competition’s decision

Marcello Lotti, the President of WSC, has issued the following statement following the decision of Target Competition to immediately withdraw the Hyundai Elantra cars of Dušan Borković and Marco Butti from the TCR Europe event at Le Castellet.

“We take note of the team’s decision, but we don’t understand it, especially as the Hyundai Elantra cars have proved to be competitive in all the TCR series around the world while running under the same BoP.

“Martin Cao Hong Wei leads in the very competitive TCR China after having won three races, Josh Buchan has scored two wins in TCR Australia and lies second in the standings, Mat’o Homola is the leader of TCR Eastern Europe with three wins, in the Kumho TCR World Tour Norbert Michelisz won twice and is second in the points, the Bryan Herta Autosport cars are first and second in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

“Looking at these results, we can’t share Target Competition’s decision; however, if this is their view, we now expect them to withdraw from TCR Italy as well, where Butti has claimed pole position in all the three events held so far and has won the season opening race at Imola. We also expect some kind of reaction from Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing.”
