Michele Imberti secures Cupra TCR for 2021

Michele Imberti will graduate into a new Cupra León TCR for the 2021 TCR Italy season with the ELITE Motorsport team.

Imberti took the took the Italian TCR DSG title with the team last year in an older Cupra (pictured) but will now target the overall crown – as well as the Under 25 title – during the year ahead in the latest León Competición.

“I am really happy with this opportunity!” he said. “I want to do well and I want to be ready from the first race. With ELITE Motorsport I feel good and we share the same goals. I don’t want to make any predictions, but I feel confident, I like the car and I feel at ease. At Monza, we will see where we will be.

“After two years of DSG, I wanted to take a further step into the TCR world. The sequential Cupra is the natural continuation and a step forward in every respect compared to my Leon DSG. With ELITE Motorsport I know I am in the right team to continue to grow with excellent technicians and without pressure.”
