Danny Kroes joins the TCR grid at Oschersleben

17-year-old Dutch driver Danny Kroes will make his TCR International Series debut next week at Oschersleben, driving a SEAT León for Ferry Monster Autosport.

Kroes, who paired up with Pepe Oriola in the TCR Benelux series last month, is looking forward to the opportunity to race in the International Series.

“I’m really happy to be able to drive at Oschersleben,” said Kroes.

“I am grateful for this opportunity, because it allows me to compete against the best TCR drivers in the world. I will try my very best to get the most out of the car and myself and to learn from competing at this top level.

“I am hoping to drive a full season in the TCR International Series next year and this is the ideal platform to show what I am capable of despite having only a few hours of experience in the SEAT León. It is my very first season in touring cars after racing a few races last year in Formula 4; despite this I am sure that the team will give me the best possible car and I am confident that I can be competitive.”
