Tassi: “I’m incredibly excited to race in WTCR”
Eighteen-year-old Hungarian Attila Tassi will become the second youngest WTCR OSCARO driver behind Benjamin Lessennes when he makes his debut in the FIA World Touring Car Cup at his home event in Hungary.
JAS Motorsport’s Official Test and Development driver finished runner-up in last season’s TCR International Series and helped his former team, M1RA, to the entrants’ title. With support from Hell Energy and JAS Motorsport, Tassi will contest the TCR Europe this year.
“I’m incredibly excited that I will race at the Hungaroring WTCR event with Hell Racing Team,” said Tassi. “It’s the result of a lot of hard work behind the scenes by a lot of people and I’m thrilled that this has all come together. To race in front of my home crowd in an FIA World Cup event is a dream come true. The level of competition will be higher than anything I’ve experienced in my racing career, but I’m not going there to make up the numbers and will instead push for the absolute best result I can possibly achieve. I can’t wait.”
WTCR Race of Hungary takes place at the Hungaroring from 27-29 April.
