Gaetano Nino Oliva signs for HC Racing Division

HC Racing Division has signed Gaetano Nino Oliva for the 2020 TCR Italy championship season to drive an Audi RS 3 LMS DSG race car.

“I have driven the Audi TCR for the first time in a test at Vallelunga and had a very good feeling. It’s fun to drive and performs really well. The team did a very good job and I was able to post some quick lap times with both new and used tyres,” Oliva said.

The 34-year-old has no former TCR experience, with his former experience including the 2018 Italian Prototypes Championship and appearances in the Belgian Endurance Championship.

“Our goal is winning the Rookie Trophy. Oliva has no experience in Touring Car, but he quickly adapted himself to the TCR driving style during the test. We are also planning to enter a second Audi car in the TCR DSG Italy series,” said team principal Alessio Canonico.
