Team Mulsanne confirms single-car return to WTCR

Team Mulsanne has confirmed that it will field a single Alfa Romeo Giulietta in this year’s shortened, Europe-only FIA World Touring Car Cup season, following a reappraisal of its options.

The Italian team had entered both of the first two season’s of WTCR with a brace of its Giulietta cars, but had planned to not enter WTCR in 2020 before the global coronavirus pandemic struck.

With the series, like many, having to revisit its calendar, the new six-event WTCR season with its focus on only European races has led to Team Mulsanne opting to re-enter the series for a third year.

However, due to its entry being submitted after the initial round of full-season applications, the team is limited to running just one car, with the driver, a WTCR race-winner, to be confirmed on August 26.

Car builder Romeo Ferraris has already shifted its focus to the all-new PURE ETCR electric touring car series, where it is building the Alfa Romeo Giulia for competition.

Team Mulsanne found itself with a Giulietta still at its disposal and has opted to take up the option of submitting a second-phase entry to WTCR ahead of the August 14 deadline.

“A lot of things have changed in recent months, but not our approach to racing and the way we live our passion,” said Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager Michela Cerruti.

“Contrary to what was planned, the cars of last year are still with us, and it seemed natural to continue this fantastic journey.

“We have decided to support the projects of Team Mulsanne and the efforts of Eurosport Events in organising the 2020 WTCR in such complex and difficult times.

“We believe that it is important to give positive messages, also to our customer teams around the world.

“The six rounds are an exciting challenge that we take on with pleasure. Very shortly we will announce our line-up, as we dive into this breath-taking 2020 season.”

The WTCR season kicks off at the Salzburgring on 12 – 13 September, culminating on 14 – 15 November with the first-ever WTCR Race of Italy at the Adria International Raceway.
