Filippi to race in WTCR with the Alfa “Romeo Ferraris” team
Former GP2 race winner Luca Filippi will make his World Touring Car Cup debut at Zolder, driving an Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR for Romeo Ferraris.
“I am very happy to be at the kick-off of the FIA WTCR in this 2020 season,” Filippi said. “It has been possible thanks to the support of great companies that I have the honour to represent and that I want to repay with my greatest determination and the best possible results in what is the top and most competitive touring car series.”
“My first season with a front-wheel-drive car has left me very good sensations and I am sure that the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCR by Romeo Ferraris will be among the front-runners.”
Romeo Ferraris joined the WTCR grid in 2018 with a pair of Giulietta TCR cars and has enjoyed considerable success in its first two years in the category, scoring two victories, nine podium finishes and a solitary pole position.
