Swedish siblings Andreas and Jessica Bäckman will make a return to the ADAC TCR Germany series at the Nürburgring this weekend, using the event as final preparations for their TCR Europe season.
Jessica first raced in TCR Germany as a guest driver at the Most event in the Czech Republic in 2019, before returning for the Hocmenheimring event later in the year, where she picked up a podium with second in race two.
Andreas made just one outing in the series last year, at the Hockenheimring, where he claimed a best finish of eighth in his Target Competition entered Hyundai.
The pair are entering into their second full season in TCR Europe in 2020, and are using this weekend’s second TCR Germany event of the year as preparation.
“It will be exciting to be back and compete in ADAC TCR Germany again,” said Andreas. “It’s a series that is ranked high and has a high standard of drivers, so it will not be easy, but it feels good to get back out on the racetracks and to compete again.
“It will also be a good preparation for next weekend when we are back in TCR Europe after the long break.”
Jessica echoed her brother’s views about using the event as preparation for the TCR Europe season opener at Circuit Paul Ricard in France the following weekend.
“I’m looking forward to race again after the long break,” said Jessica. “It is extra fun to be back and join ADAC TCR Germany again.
“In addition, it is a perfect preparation for next weekend when our main series TCR Europe kicks off in France.”
