V-Action plan TCR Europe or Italy programmes with Alfa Romeo

The Italian V-Action Racing Team plan to compete in this year’s TCR Europe or TCR Italy series with the Romeo Ferraris-built Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR.

The Brescia-based outfit took part in selected rounds of last year’s TCR Germany and TCR Italy series, running cars for Tommaso Mosca, Joakim Darbom, Luigi Ferrara and Giacomo Altoé. A new assault with a professional driver line-up is now being evaluated, with news expected in the coming weeks.

“I am very pleased to continue our cooperation with Romeo Ferraris engineering company,” said team manager Daniele Vernuccio. “We are currently working to finalise a top-level programme, either in Europe or in Italy, with professional drivers who are also experienced in touring car racing. Our goal is to be competitive from the very beginning and fight for the title.”

The Italian team are hoping to pick up on the motor sport legacy of the Alfa Romeo brand, which is particularly strong in Italy due to its success in the ’90s in the Italian Superturismo.

“We are proud of racing Alfa Romeo cars and we dream of reviving the success the brand enjoyed in the past. We are confident, because we trust the Giulietta’s potential and we are very motivated to prove that an all-Italian team-and- car association can be a winner again in motor sport.”

V-Action have raced with Abarth machinery for the last nine years in the Italian manufacturer’s one-make series as part of the Zatti Sport Squadra Corse.
