BRC Racing Team announced its participation in the 2019 TCR Europe Series with a Hyundai i30 N car entrusted to Luca Filippi.
The 33-year old Italian is facing his maiden Touring Car season after building his racing career mostly at the wheel of Formula cars in F3000 (2005 Italian champion), GP2 (vice-champion in 2011), Formula Indy and Formula E.
Filippi, who has recently tested the Hyundai TCR to refine settings, commented: "I can't wait for my first race with the team. I worked with the guys since the beginning of their activity and saw the racing department growing year after year, until it became an excellence in international motoring scene. I believe I have driven every racing car that has passed through the BRC workshop, for different reasons: friendship, curiosity, passion. Starting from Budapest, I can add a further motivation: achieving great sporting satisfaction. I found an instinctive feeling with the Hyundai I30 N, as it fits my driving style; I found myself comfortable from the first laps, both with the car and the team. I thank team principal Massimiliano Fissore for offering me this professional opportunity and I will demonstrate my gratitude with facts, starting from Budapest".
