Tecnodom Sport move debut of Fiat Tipo TCR to Monza

Tecnodom Sport has announced it will move the competitive debut of the Fiat Tipo TCR from the TCR Italy weekend at Vallelunga to the TCR Europe races at Monza next weekend.

“We had the possibility to take part this weekend in the TCR Italy event at Vallelunga, but with the aim of giving our programme a more international visibility we have decided to enter in the TCR Europe at Monza,” said team principal Domiziano Giacon.

The car, driven by Luca Rangoni, will run under a temporary homologation and will not be eligible to score points.

“Our car will not be eligible to score but will be put to the proof against a more competitive grid,” said Giacon.

“We are very grateful to WSC Group and the TCR Europe promoter for their support to this participation that represents a planned step in the technical development of the car and will help us to identify the areas in which we have to work.

“We are really excited to see how the Tipo will perform compared to the top-level field of TCR Europe in this early stage of its development.”

The car will run with a 80mm ride height, 100% engine power and a minimum weight of 1265kg.
