The 2021 of Hexathron Racing Systems is also in TCR Italy with Elite Motorsport, an established italian team that has chosen the engineering company directed by Marco Calovolo for the technical consultancy of its sporting programs.
Elite Motorsport has confirmed Hexathron Racing Systems as technical support partner in TCR Italy: the team based in Brescia is aiming to fight for the overall title after the super positive results achieved in the last seasons; this target is on Michele Imberti’s hands, 2020 TCR DSG Trophy winner in the italian championship, this year on the new Cupra Leon Competicion race car.
Since the end of March, Elite Motorsport has started a huge development work together with Hexathron Racing Systems engineers, starting from three successfully test days in Varano De’ Melegari, Misano Adriatico and Monza before the first TCR Italy race event (Monza) where Michele Imberti achieved an excellent result in Race 2.
Nicola Novaglio (Elite Motorsport): “This season will be decisive for the future of our team and the agreement with Hexathron Racing Systems stems from the desire to grow in the next years. The extension of the collaboration with Michele Imberti came naturally after the title won last year in the DGS Trophy.“
Michele Imberti: “I’m happy for this technical collaboration with Hexathron Racing Systems, which can certainly give me a lot from the technical and sporting side thanks to their high level experience. The season has just begun, the test days and the first round in Monza have given us positive hopes for the season. The new car is completely different from last year’s but I am becoming more and more confident with it, kilometer after kilometer, and the proof is the pace and the result of Race 2 at Monza. We are already working towards the next Misano event where the target is to improve further; the competition will be hard but we can do a very good job.“
Marco Calovolo (Hexathron Racing Systems): “We are delighted to collaborate with Elite Motorsport and Michele Imberti in a high-level program such as TCR Italy, which in recent years has proved to be a top level series. We bring to Elite Motorsport all our experience in this kind of races, which has allowed our customers to achieve many titles in recent years. The three test days and the first round of the championship were precious to improve our know-how about the Cupra Leon Competicion and to start working better with the team and with Michele, a driver who proved to be very quick.“
