Ollie Taylor joins remaining TCR Europe series rounds

Ollie Taylor has confirmed to join the remaining two rounds of the TCR Europe series season at Monza and Barcelona alongside his TCR UK championship programme.

“The idea of going to Monza and Barcelona is basically to see how we’ll fare against the TCR Europe drivers. Our pace in the UK means we think we could do well against some of the European guys, but you never know for sure until you actually race against them,” said Taylor.

“It’s a new challenge and I’m very excited about the fact that I can see for myself how I fare against them. It’ll also mean that we’ll know how much work we have to do over the winter.”

The Pyro Motorsport driver is currently placed second in the TCR UK Touring Car Championship, 78 points behind leading driver Dan Lloyd. Taylor will drive the same Honda Civic Type R TCR race car in the European rounds that he currently drives in TCR UK.

“I have to say that I’m really enjoying competing in TCR UK. This year has been a great introduction to racing in a front-wheel drive car for me and it’s something I definitely want to keep on doing,” said Taylor.
