Stian Paulsen returns for the new season

Stian Paulsen has confirmed that he will return to the TCR Europe Series for the 2019 season.

Paulsen joined the grid last season at the wheel of a Cupra TCR run by his own Stian Paulsen Racing team, securing a best finish of second at the Hungaroring.

Despite a difficult winter following the move to a new workshop, Paulsen will continue in the series at the wheel of the Cupra insisting that the 2019 campaign would be used to help prepare for a stronger year in 2020.

“It has been very hard to put together the programme, because I had a difficult winter,” he said. “I had to move to a new workshop and refurbish it. So I had not much time to think about racing and lost my sponsors.

“It’s not the best moment for racing, but I will try to manage. I will take this as a transition season for keeping on just learning and prepare better for 2020.”
