Team Mulsanne counts on experience in WTCR
Team Mulsanne will be calling on the experience of drivers Fabrizio Giovanardi and Gianni Morbidelli when the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO begins in Marrakech, Morocco this week.
Fielding a pair of Romeo Ferraris-built Alfa Romeo Giuliettas, the all-Italian team is embarking on a major WTCR bid with the choice of drivers a key component of its 2018 programme.
“We have been taking risks for three years as a factory, as a team, building this Alfa Romeo as a private company and taking part in TCR for the last two years and now being a part of WTCR with such competitive drivers and teams and such a great organisation,” said Michela Cerruti, the Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager. “With Fabrizio and Gianni, for the first time we wanted to make a safe choice, we wanted experience and performance, we needed professionality and also a good image and reputations to make things big in style like Italians can do very well. That’s what we can do and with them, we can make a big step with the car, we can make a big step as a team and as a factory. I am sure they will help us a lot with that.”
