DG Sport Compétition announced its participation in the 2016 TCR Benelux championship with an Opel Astra TCR. The experienced duo of Pierre-Yves Corthals and Frédéric Caprasse will be sharing the wheel of the German car.
One of Belgium’s best touring car specialists, ‘Pilou’ Corthals has claimed a number of titles in the Renault cups and proved competitive in the World Touring Car Championship as well. “The TCR championship is a great opportunity for me to show my skills and experience with the front-wheel driven cars,” he said.
Caprasse was crowned champion in the 2015 VW Fun Cup and has also raced in the Belgian championships at the wheel of Porsche 991 Cup and SEAT León TCR.
DG Sport Compétition will receive its Opel Astra at the beginning of April; team manager Alain Georges and technical director Lionel Hansen are also evaluating the possibility to field a second car in the TCR Benelux.
