2019 TCR Europe runner-up Julien Briché has confirmed that he will return to the series in 2020, with his team JSB Compétition running at least two Peugeot 308 TCR cars.

Briché won more races than any other driver last year, visiting the top step of the podium four times but being unable to clinch the title as he lost out to Josh Files in the final round by 38 points.

Briché also ran a second Peugeot for Lilou Wadoux in the initial rounds in 2019, as well as a CUPRA for Marie Baus-Coppens at most events.

Briché has now confirmed that he will return to the series for a third consecutive season in 2020, being joined by 42-year-old Jean-Laurent Navarro.

Navarro, from Montpellier, was the runner-up in last year’s Peugeot Racing Cup Gentlemen Trophy, whilst he has also raced in the SEAT León Eurocup and Lamborgihi Super Trofeo in the past.

Navarro also raced in the 2018 TCR Europe round at Barcelona, finishing 22nd in race one in a Volkswagen Golf GTi. He also took part in the 2018 24H Series in TCR machinery.

Briché is hoping to run a third car as well during 2020, with further information to follow in due course.
