Franco Girolami, brother of WTCR driver Néstor, will make his Touring Car debut in Europe this weekend in the TCR Italy’s opener at Mugello.
The 28-year-old Argentine has already built himself a reputation by winning three national titles in the 2011 Formula Renault Plus, 2012 TC2000 Junior Championship and 2018 Top Race V6.
Girolami will be at the wheel of a Honda Civic Type R run by MM Motorsport.
“I am extremely pleased with this opportunity, and I wish to thank my brother, Honda and the team for offering it to me. Néstor has come to Mugello to help me with his advice and technical expertise and I hope I will be able to get used to the car soon. My goal is to try and make the top-five and maybe stepping on the podium. It won’t be easy, but I will do my best,” said Girolami.
