Ettore Carminati’s CRM Motorsport Team is ready to leave for the 2022 season of TCR Italy.
Among the novelties the entry of Michele Imberti, TCR DSG 2020 Champion, with the second example of Hyundai i30 N.
A further novelty lies in the agreement with Nope Engineering regarding electronics and suspensions.
A collaboration that completes the journey started two seasons ago with the first release in the Italian series. On Tuesday the team will be present at the Cremona Circuit for the first test of the season with both cars.
For Carminati it will be a “return” to the Hyundai cockpit, while for Imberti the debut. A radical change after the last few seasons that saw the latter protagonist in the Italian series after the 2020 DSG title.
To underline the presence, for the fourth consecutive year, of Imberti’s “historic” mechanic, Gianluca De Giacomi who will once again be at his side.
It will be a very important day, in preparation for the new 2022 adventure, in the championship dedicated to the most combative touring cars in circulation, leading drivers and teams who will battle it out for all six double appointments.
