Target Competition confirms switch to Opel Astra TCR
12 February 2016
The Target Competition team has confirmed that it will enter a total of seven Opel Astra cars in two different TCR championships in 2016.
The announcement means the team will switch from the SEAT León cars with which it won both the Drivers’ and Teams’ titles in the TCR International Series in 2015.
“We are very proud to be able to race under the Opel colors in the TCR,” said Team Principal Andreas Gummerer, while his twin brother Markus added: “We are convinced of the Astra TCR’s potential and trust Opel’s extensive experience in touring car racing. For us, mutual trust is the basis for good collaboration, and that was present in abundance from the very first moment.”
Opel Motorsport Director Jörg Schrott commented: “We are delighted that the 2015 TCR International Series champions have decided to race our Astra TCR this season. We can only benefit from their TCR experience. With Target Competition, we have found a strong customer and partner for entry into the TCR series.”
Driver announcements will be made in due course.
