Kevin Ceccon replaces Gianni Morbidelli at Team Mulsanne

Team Mulsanne has confirmed Kevin Ceccon as Gianni Morbidelli’s replacement for the upcoming round of the World Touring Car Cup at the Slovakiaring in the team’s Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR.

The 24-year-old Italian, and former GP2 racer, will make his front-wheel touring car debut at the circuit, which is a last-minute stand in for the cancelled Argentinian round.

“We have been through some very busy weeks and to be back on track will almost be a relief,” said car builder Romeo Ferraris’ operations manager Michela Cerruti.

“We are ready to welcome in our family a new member Kevin Ceccon, a very promising young driver on the international scene, who has already proven his talent and professionalism in single-seater formula. To make his touring car debut immediately in the WTCR is a real challenge for him, but we believe in his potential.”
