Proteam to race Ford cars in TCR International Series
24 March 2015
Proteam Racing has announced its participation in the 2015 TCR International Series with Ford Focus ST cars developed and built by Onyx Engineering.
The Italian team will start the season in Malaysia and China with one car in the hands of Diego Romanini. They will add a second Focus ST at the first European event at Valencia and a third car before the end of the season.
Team manager Valmiro Presenzini said: “We feel confident, because Onyx has done an incredible job in building the TCR Focus. We wanted to start the season with two cars, but we have appreciated the huge efforts put in by Onyx in fine-tuning, which made it impossible to finish the second car in time to be sent to the Far East for the first two events. However, we think that it was worth waiting for as the car they have built has great potential.”
Marcello Lotti, CEO of the series promoter WSC echoed: “I saw the Ford Focus ST for myself the last time I visited the Onyx workshop. I was impressed, as in my opinion this car has been tailored to the TCR technical regulations right down to the smallest detail. I have a feeling that it will be fighting soon for the top positions.”
Romanini, from Italy, has raced in various categories including the FIA World Touring Car Championship, FIA European Touring Car Cup and the Italian Superstars Championship.
