Mike Halder inks TPR Motorsport deal

TPR Motorsport has announced the signing of Mike Halder for the 2022 TCR Denmark season.

Halder has previously competed in TCR Germany and TCR Europe before moving to TCR Spain this year, where he secured the championship title as well as winning the TCR Ibérico crown.

He becomes the first driver signed up to race one of TPR’s Honda Civic Type R cars next season.

“I am super happy to join TCR Denmark with TPR Motorsport,” he said. “This is a new challenge for me because the tracks are different from those where I used to race, but I and the rest of the team are looking forward to take it up.

“I have spent sometimes with the team this year and seen a couple of the tracks from the other side of the pit wall. We have a lot of preparations to do, but I’m sure we have the potential to fight for the podium.”

Team manager Toni Persic said he was delighted to bring Halder into the series.

“We are pleased to present a top driver for the Danish series’ new season,” he said. “Mike has lots of experience from TCR racing all over Europe and comes with deep knowledge of the Civic Type R.

“I am sure that we can have that knowledge translated into results in 2022. We will run two cars and will unveil the name of our second driver soon.”
