Delahaye Racing evaluating TCR Europe programme

The Delahaye Racing team has revealed that it is evaluating an entry into the TCR Europe series for 2018 as part of an expanded racing programme.

The team has competed in the Benelux series for the past two seasons and finished second in the standings last year with Guillaume Mondron driving a Volkswagen Golf.

The decision to merge the TCR Benelux series with the Europe series would allow the team to compete in both championships during the year ahead, alongside a new GT programme with a Ginetta GT4.

No decision has yet been taken over what model the team will use for its continued TCR programme, with a preference being to stay with the Golf for a second year.

“We would like to continue on this course,” Gilles Terlinden and Pierre Sevrin, directors of the Delahaye Racing Team explained. “Although the priority is to stay with Volkswagen, there is also the chance that cars from another brand might appear in our workshop.

“The possibility of combining the TCR Europe and TCR Benelux series, that are together in five of the seven European events, is of course a plus.”
