Piro Sports announce TCR Europe programme

The German team Piro Sports has announced a move into TCR Europe for the 2018 season.

Having spent recent season running single-seater programmes, the team will join TCR Europe with a two-car programme running under the Autodis Racing by Piro Sports banner, thanks to a deal with Luxembourg-based car dealership group Autodis.

The team will be running two different models in the series; a Hyundai i30 N TCR for ex-TCR Benelux racer Loris Cencetti, and a new Honda Civic Type R TCR for former ADAC F4 racer Cedric Piro.

“The team and both drivers have already a lot of experience and will be able to adapt to this new challenge,” team principal Erwin Piro said.

“Of course, it won’t be easy to be at the top straight away, but we’re determined to catch up quickly with meticulous work.”
