Nos Racing – Ermete to enter SEAT León TCR for full season

Massimiliano Chini and Nello Nataloni will share a DSG-equipped SEAT León TCR for the entire season. The project will be operated by Nos Racing – Ermete, a joint venture between two pre-existing teams.

Chini, who had a taste of TCR last year at Adria, is keen to going back behind the wheel of his SEAT: “I can’t wait to go back on track”, said the Roma-based driver. “I’m really happy to be able to take part in TCR Italy with a team that is like a family for me. The car is the same as last year’s, but we updated it to the latest TCR specification. We don’t rule out switching to a sequential transmission in the future.”

“I will share the car with a friend, Nello Nataloni, who is also a great team-mate. We tested at Vallelunga and worked on the setup. We tried several different solutions and I’m happy with the outcome of the test. I would like us to be in the top ten, but it will not be easy, as the championship has grown a lot compared to last year and there will be several good opponents we will have to face.”

The TCR Italy season kicks off at Adria this weekend.
