Gilles Magnus will compete in TCR Benelux in 2019 after securing a deal to join Comtoyou Racing.

The Belgian teenager has previously raced in Formula Renault 2.0 NEC and in the Blancpain GT Series but will switch to touring cars in the colours of the RACB National Team.

The announcement of Magnus’ programme came during the annual RACB awards in Brussels, where the Audi RS 3 LMS TCR he will campaign during the 2019 season was officially revealed.

TCR Benelux will run within the TCR Europe series in the events at the Hungaroring, Spa, Barcelona and Monza as well as the Dutch meeting in May at a venue still to be announced.
