A lot of work has been done at Romeo Ferraris to develop a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta for TCR competition. The new-born car, named Giulietta Veloce, differs in a number of parts from the model that has been raced so far.
The whole framework has been lightened, the front bumper-splitter group and the rear wing’s mounting have been redesigned to reduce drag, the weight distribution has been optimized, just to name the main changes.
Operations manager Michela Cerruti explained: “It’s a brand new project and we haven’t had enough track time to compare the two models. But we have built the Veloce with the aim of improving performance. The outside look is still quite the same, but the main changes are inside; the lighter framework and the new weight distribution have been conceived to make the car more driveable and agile, improving the fields where we were struggling.”
So far, 14 Giulietta TCR have been sold to customer teams in Europe, USA, Australia and Asia. “It is still a competitive car, with the potential to achieve brilliant results,” Cerruti said. “We will keep on providing on-site technical support to our customers, just like we are currently doing in North America, where the 2019 season has kicked off. We have already received orders for the Veloce, the first one from Australia, but we don’t make predictions on future sales. However, we are confident that in 2019 the new model will be racing in a minimum of two series other than WTCR.”
