Dušan Borković has confirmed that he will continue to race a Hyundai i30 N TCR for Target Competition in TCR Europe in 2019, entering into a second season with the Italian outfit.
The Serbian driver was in the hunt for the overall drivers’ title throughout the 2018 season, but eventually finished third overall after claiming three victories.
Borković will partner Swedes Andreas and Jessica Bäckman in the team, which will also enjoy the support of the Autodis company in 2019.
“Target Competition showed professionalism and a huge experience last season,” said Borković. “Our chemistry was great, as was our mutual respect for each other and for Hyundai Motorsport. I’m sure that this year we can only be better.
“There was no doubt in my mind in choosing the championship. TCR Europe is a great organization that offers great opportunities and the competition is extremely strong.
“I think that this year will be even more competitive, but I’m absolutely ready to give it my best and end the season on top.
“Almost all of the tracks are familiar to me, and that’s a big plus. I never drove on Hockenheim and Red Bull Ring, but I’m sure that together with the team we will put up our best performance possible as well.
“I expect the spectacular start at the Hungaroring, which traditionally brings together big crowds, among which are many Serbian fans. I won there last year, and I hold fond memories of that track throughout my career.
“The finale is reserved for Barcelona and Monza, almost as last year, I just hope with the different outcome than last year.
“I hope that this year everything will be much smoother giving that the team and I have more experience together and individually, and I will as always do my best as far as preparing for the season and giving my best at each racing weekend.
“I also welcome our new partner Autodis. I hope that I exceed their expectation and bring them many reasons to celebrate throughout the year.”
The TCR Europe season gets underway at the Hungaroring on the 27 – 28 April.
