Rubens Barrichello joins Toyota for 2020 Super TC 2000 season

Toyota Gazoo Racing Argentina has announced ex-Formula 1 driver Rubens Barrichello for their 2020 Super TC 2000 programme. He will join team-mates Matías Rossi, Julián Santero and Mariano Altuna in a fourth Toyota Corolla.

“I’m very happy to join Toyota and enter Super TC 2000. It’s a series I’ve always been closely following and has plenty of good drivers,” said Barichello.

“It will be a strong challenge for me. Despite my Formula 1 background I have a lot to learn in here, from my team-mates and the technical staff. I feel young and motivated again.”

The 47-year-old is still the most experienced Formula 1 driver with 326 races between 1993 and 2011 and the Brazilian has mainly raced in the Brazilian Stock Car series since his F1 retirement.

“We’re proud of having Rubens in our country and our team. This will boost our strategies in the region, especially after we announced entering Stock Car with Matías Rossi as well,” said Toyota Argentina president Daniel Herrero.

The first Super TC 2000 race of 2020 will be held on March 1st at a venue that is still to be confirmed.
