Aurélien Comte and Sylvain Pussier will join the grid of the TCR World Tour in Vallelunga next weekend, with the SP Compétition TCR Italy regulars bringing their CUPRA cars to the series.
Comte last competed in World Touring Cars in 2020, when the Frenchman took part in most of the FIA WTCR season in a Renault Mégane.
The 34-year-old had previously been a race winner in WTCR in 2018 when racing a DG Sport Peugeot.
In 2021 and 2022 he didn’t race in touring cars, before returning this year for a full season in the burgeoning Italian series, where his best result so far is second in the most recent race at Misano.
Pussier is also returning to international tin-tops – the 45-year-old competed full-time in TCR Europe in 2021 in an older-generation CUPRA, picking up a best finish of 11th in the season finale in Barcelona.
He moved to TCR Italy last year, where he has claimed a best finish of fourth at Monza early in the season.
