Mikel Azcona to lead Volcano Motorsport entry

Volcano Motorsport has confirmed a full-season entry into TCR Europe for the 2021 season, led by Mikel Azcona.

Azcona will take part in the series alongside his commitments in WTCR with Zengő Motorsport in what will be his first full season in TCR Europe since he won the title back in 2018.

The Spaniard competed in the final two events of the 2020 in a Cupra Leon run by the Volcano Motorsport team, taking three wins from four starts.

This year, the team will switch to the new Cupra Leon Competición TCR, with Azcona joined in the line-up by Russian driver Evgenii Leonov, who contested a part campaign last year.

The pair also shared driving duties in the Campeonato de España Resistencia, claiming six wins as Leonov secured the title. Leonov’s first outing in the new car this season saw him win in the Coppa Italia Turismo at Mugello.
