Campos confirm three car Opel campaign in TCR
Spanish team Campos Racing will field a pair of Opel Astra OPCs in the first two rounds of the 2015 TCR International Series, with Ukrainian Igor Skuz one of the team’s drivers, before expanding to three cars at the start of the European leg of the season in Spain in May.
Campos, which field two Chevrolet Cruze TC1s in the WTCC this year for Hugo Valente and John Filippi, and last year also ran Cruze 1.6Ts in the European Touring Car Cup last year for Skuz and the TC2T champion Nikolay Karamyshev, will field the Kissling Motorsport-developed Opel Astra in the new TCR series, in a car which has been developed for the German VLN series.
“This is a new adventure for Campos Racing and we are very much looking forward to it,” said Campos team principal Joan Orus. “We really believe that the TCR International Series represents a great opportunity for our team to further increase its reputation. We are also very pleased to retain Igor Skuz who has consistently improved since he switched to international competition with us three years ago.”
