Subaru TCR team Top Run Motorsport are targeting the Zandvoort round of the FIA World Touring Car Cup as a wildcard entry, with either Luigi Ferrara or Stefano Comini likely to race the car.
The Italian team have had an on-off campaign since building a TCR car in 2015, with overheating and weight issues plaguing the team and preventing results in their selected TCR outings.
The last outing in TCR International came at the Salzburgring in 2017, and the team have only finished four of their 14 entries into the series.
In late 2017 Top Run enlisted two-time TCR champion Comini to drive the WRX STi in the TCR Italy series, where he claimed a podium finish in the season finale at Monza.
Now it is understood that Top Run want to enter the new WTCR as a wildcard entry at Zandvoort in May, postponing their planned entry into the TCR Italy opener at Imola this weekend in order to work on their WTCR plan.
It is not clear how the Balance of Performance [BoP] for the car would be handled, as the car was not present in the official TCR BoP tests in Valencia last month, although it was assessed ahead of the 2017 season.
