Tecnodom Sport unveils the Fiat Tipo TCR
Sport has unveiled the Fiat Tipo TCR. The Italian team has already
proved its competence in building, developing and running Touring Cars,
clinching the Italian TCR 1.4L class with an Alfa Romeo Mito in 2016 and
winning three races of the 2017 TCR Italy with an Opel Astra TCR.
Tipo TCR has been completely designed and built by Tecnodom under the
technical lead of engineer Roberto Zampieri, Abarth’s chief test driver.
The car is powered by the same Alfa Romeo 1.7L engine used by the
Giulietta TCR and is fitted with a Sadev sequential gearbox.
Sport has already started the homologation procedure with the TCR
Technical Department and plans to start running the Tipo in TCR Italy as
soon as the provisional homologation form will be issued.
Kevin Giacon, together with his brother Jonathan, has been testing the Tipo: “We
are very proud of it! It is very well built and has a lot of potential.
We are currently making tests with different type of tyres, because our
plan is to sell the car to teams that race in the different TCR series.
We are already building two other cars and have received requests from
Turkey and South America.”
Tecnodom Sport’s principal Domiziano Giacon added: “We want to organise and event at Adria and invite the teams to discover and test the Tipo.”
