Jordi Oriola is facing the biggest challenge in his racing career. The 19-year old Spaniard committed to the full season of the TCR International Series at the wheel of an Opel Astra TCR run by Target Competition.
“This has always been my dream, racing in a world championship, where young drivers like me may have a future in touring cars. I am looking forward to showing my potential. The championship will visit some famous and demanding racetracks and will be part of three Formula One events. On top of this, I will be driving the Opel Astra, which I had the opportunity to test in Valencia where I had a very positive feeling,” said Oriola who ended the 2015 season with a brilliant fifth place in the Macau Guia Race for Target Competition.
“I wish to thank Opel Motorsport and all my sponsors for giving me the chance to compete in the whole TCR International Series. There are no doubts about my will to do my best from the beginning of the season with the aim to fight for the top five positions in the championship.”
