Marcio Basso completes first test ahead of TCR South America debut

Marcio Basso has completed a first test ahead of the inaugural TCR South America championship season in 2021, driving an Audi RS 3 LMS for team MC Tubarão.

“I’m delighted to be part of TCR South America’s pioneer season,” said Basso.

“The concept of the category is successful, and it will be a pleasure to race on the continent’s best racetracks against talented drivers from the whole Latin America.”

The Brazilian, who has previously raced in the International GT Open series, completed two test days with the Audi at Tarumã’s Velopark Circuit in Brazil.

“The Audi TCR is a great car and very fun to drive. The lap times we clocked during the test at Velopark were impressive, even faster than we expected. I’m very proud to be the first Brazilian driver to test the car that I will race next year,” said Basso.

The Audi has previously been raced in TCR Italy by Enrico Bettera.
