Monza hosts the
penultimate event of the season
The battle for the 2018
TCR Europe Series title enters a crucial phase as the series arrives in
Monza for the penultimate event of the season.
Target Competition's Dušan Borković leads the standings in
his Hyundai i30 N, but just two points clear of Mikel Azcona's PCR Sport
Cupra. Third in the classification, twenty points off the leader, is
Dániel Nagy in the M1RA Hyundai; the young Hungarian will try to benefit
from the duel between the Serbian and the Spaniard.
The fight promises to be red-hot, because the 28-car field includes some
distinguished guest stars such as Fabrizio Giovanardi, Nicola Baldan and
Strategy and team orders will play their parts, with Borković counting on
his teammates Reece Barr and Kris Richard while Baldan and Tavano are due
to support Nagy and Azcona respectively.
In 2017, the TCR International Series' event at Monza saw victories for
Roberto Colciago (Honda Civic) and Stefano Comini (Audi RS3 LMS). The
Swiss considers Monza as his home racetrack and will be aiming to score
his maiden win of the season in the Autodis Racing-THX Honda Civic.
Other top runners to watch are Josh Files and Attila Tassi who also drive
Honda cars for the Hell Energy Racing KCMG and Jean-Karl Vernay in the
Leopard Lukoil Team-WRT Audi RS3 LMS.
