Dénis Dupont to join TC America grid

Belgian racer Dénis Dupont has confirmed that he will make a switch to North America for the 2020 season as he returns to TCR competition.

Dupont last raced in TCR-spec machinery in 2018, taking two podium finishes in the World Touring Car Cup with the Comtoyou Racing team before moving into sportscar racing last season.

The 27-year-old will be at the wheel of an Audi RS 3 LMS for his North American programme, which will see him contest races in both TC America and the Canadian Touring Car Championship.

“I’m really happy with this opportunity of racing in North America, and I am also pleased to drive again an Audi RS 3 LMS car in TCR. It’s a car that I have got to know and appreciate when I raced in the 2018 WTCR. That experience has surely helped in sealing this deal for racing in TC America and CTCC.”
