Kevin Ceccon ready to resume his TCR Italy season at Mugello
The next challenge that awaits Kevin Ceccon is Mugello, that on 16-17 July will host the fourth round on the 2022 calendar of the TCR Italy Touring Car Championship. At the wheel of the Hyundai Elantra N TCR number 31, the Aggressive Team Italia driver continues his hunt for the championship title, almost conquered last year in the exciting epilogue that took place right on the Tuscan track, where he won Race 2.
After conquering the podium in all the four races held at Monza and Misano, Ceccon is currently P3 in the Driver Standings with 143 points. The goal for this next round will be to extend his streak of finishes in the top 3 and also to discover what the strengths of the new Elantra will be at Mugello.
It’s important to remark that Kevin missed the Imola round due to the concomitance with the FIA ETCR series in Pau, in which he participated as an official Hyundai Motorsport driver. However, the TCR Italy sporting regulations allow to discard the two worst results, giving Ceccon the opportunity to still be able to fight for the Italian crown.
At Mugello the engines will start as usual on Friday, with the two 30-minutes Free Practice sessions scheduled at 10:00am and 1:25pm respectively, in preparation for Qualifying which will start at 6:55pm. Race 1 will go underway on Saturday, starting at 5:10 pm, while race 2 will take place at 10:50am on Sunday.
“Four podium finishes out of four races is a very positive streak, which still allows me and Aggressive Team Italia to be among the contenders for the title, but this weekend at Mugello we hope to make a step forward. We showed that we have all the weapons to do it, and with each session we learned more about the new Hyundai Elantra N TCR, beside the fact that we were able to win here last season. Obviously we don’t underestimate our opponents, aware that the competition level in the TCR Italy is very high, but this makes everything more exciting, also for the public”.
