Swiss team Maurer Motorsport has announced plans to contest this year’s ADAC Procar Series in the Division 2 class, as well as all four rounds of the FIA European Touring Car Cup with a pair of Chevrolet Aveos built to Super 1600 regulations.
The Roggwil based team has a strong prior record in Germany’s leading production based touring car series, winning the 2005 and 2006 Series with Mattias Schläppi and Vincent Radermecker, the latter in their first association with Chevrolet, running a year old Lacetti S2000. The team last entered the FIA European Touring Car Cup in 2009, also with Radermecker and Jose Monroy, and also ran three Lacettis for Moroccan drivers in the 2010 round of the World Touring Car Championship at Marrakech.
“We are in process to build the 1600 Aveos at the moment,” said Maurer Team Principal Beat Maurer, “We are very happy to work with strong partners like KW Suspension and OMP.”
The team will run the cars for Russian drivers Alexander Frolov, the 2011 RTCC champion, and Vadim Meshecheriakov.
The team has also confirmed that it may run a third car in Division 2 in the ADAC Procar Series, or a Chevrolet Cruze or Lacetti in the Division 1 class which is reserved for Super 2000 cars.
