Mat’o Homola signs with Target Competition for TCR Europe in 2019

Mat’o Homola will take part in the 2019 TCR Europe series, after confirming his switch to the regional championship with Target Competition, racing a Hyundai i30 N TCR alongside Dušan Borković and Andreas and Jessica Bäckman.

Homola, 24, took part in the FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) in 2018 in a Peugeot 308 TCR, where the Slovak driver claimed a race victory at Vila Real in June.

But with DG Sport and Peugeot not taking part in WTCR in 2019, Homola was left without a drive. As a result, the former TCR International Series race-winner has signed with Target Competition for the 2019 TCR Europe series.

Homola will reunite with Borković, with whom he was team-mates in the 2016 TCR International Series when the duo raced B3 Racing-run SEAT León cars.

“The team is very motivated and has the top goals, so I’m really happy to be a part of it,” said Homola. “The atmosphere in the team is simply amazing and I feel like I’m joining a family and winning team again.

“Additionally, I’m also happy to announce that I won’t be going for the races alone, as my ex-engineer Jaro Krajci is coming back to guide me. We share great memories together and he was there for me when I had a lot of success in my race career.

“[To race a] Hyundai i30 N TCR is a dream came true. Last year I was able to keep some these Hyundai’s behind me, but most of the year they were in front of me. Now I will be driving one of these beasts!

“This season looks very promising and I feel in my bones, that I will be able to fight for the victory!”

Homola is setting his sights high for the coming season, targeting the overall title in the outfit which finished as runner-up in the 2018 Teams’ classification.

“Last year my goal was to be in the top ten, which looked like a mission impossible several times. Now we’ve got it all for the European title victory!”

The TCR Europe season gets underway at the Hungaroring on the 27-28 April.
