Gergoire Demoustier will team with Mat’o Homola at DG Sport in the team’s second Opel Astra TCR car. While this will be Demoustier’s first experience in Opel machinery, the Frenchman contested the 2016 TCR Benelux season finale in a VW Golf TCR.
“I’m going to split my time between three entirely different disciplines: since the beginning of the season I’m taking part in the World Rallycross Championship with a Peugeot 208 Supercar and in GT4 with a Porsche Cayman. Now I’m looking forward to discover the TCR International Series,” he said. “Even though I have the experience of two WTCC seasons, I will need to get used to the Astra TCR, which is very much different from my rallycross 4×4 and GT4 cars. This is why I have not set myself a precise goal for Salzburgring. There I will focus on taking my bearings at the wheel of the car and becoming acquainted with the team. Watching the TCR races I saw that drivers fight hard for positions, but I’m not worried about this. I’m very excited to begin this new chapter in my racing career.” said the 26 year old driver.
