The Pro Racing team will return for the next round of the Super TC 2000 Championship at Oberá after a two race absence, with 23-year-old Franco Vivian joining the team in their Fiat Linea.
The team ran the works Fiat programme in TC 2000 last year, but had dropped to just one car at the start of the season after Fiat left the Championship, fielding two-time champion José María López in the Fiat Linea, now equipped with a Radicial V8 engine with the new changes in regulations for this season as the TC 2000 became the Super TC 2000.
After a tough start, López left Pro Racing to join the rival independent PSG16 Team, formerly the factory Ford team in the Championship, from the fourth round at San Juan. López took pole position in his first race with PSG16, and also took pole position again last time out at General Roca and went on to take the race win.
Pro Racing will return at the next round at Oberá with 2010 Formula Renault 2.0 Argentina runner-up Franco Vivian, who is looking forward to racing in the Championship again.
“It’s a great joy to debut in Super TC2000,” said Vivian. “Since I started in karting, my goal was the TC2000 and now Super TC2000. In 2009 and 2010 I raced in the (Buenos Aires) ran the 200km as the guest of Jose Luis Di Palma and I really enjoyed it.
