Nicola Baldan enters TCR Italy finale at Imola

2017 champion Nicola Baldan will enter the TCR Italy championship season finale at Imola this weekend.

The Italian made his return to touring car racing in the penultimate TCR Europe race weekend at Spa last month and will drive the same Cupra León Competición for Èlite Motorsport this weekend.

“I returned at the wheel of a TCR car after two-and-a-half years at Spa,” said Baldan.

“TCR Europe is a very competitive series and yet we have finished twice in the top-ten after completing a number of overtaking maneuvers. This made me confident that we have the possibilities to do well at Imola.”

Baldan crashed hard at Imola in 2018 which meant that he was out from touring car racing for over two years.

“It means a lot to me, returning to TCR Italy at Imola, where everything risked to be ended. To comeback right there provides me with additional motivations,” said Baldan.
