After a maiden Touring Car season in TCR Europe last year, Luca Filippi will join Jean-Karl Vernay to drive Team Mulsanne’s second Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce in the 2020 WTCR opener at Zolder.
Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager, commented: “We gladly welcome Luca Filippi to the family. I am happy to have an Italian driver at the wheel of our car in the FIA WTCR, and I am delighted that it will be Luca, whose career I have always been following with interest. To have two drivers with great experience and specific touring car know-how will be an added value in a championship with such a compressed calendar and which will require reactivity and flexibility. Luckily, we can benefit from the great support of the FIA WTCR promoter, Eurosport Events.”
Filippi said: “I am very happy to be at the kick-off of the FIA WTCR in this 2020 season. It has been possible thanks to the support of great companies that I have the honour to represent and that I want to repay with my greatest determination and the best possible results in what is the most competitive touring car series. My first season with a front-wheel-drive car has left me very good sensations and I am sure that the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCR by Romeo Ferraris will be among the front-runners."
