Romeo Ferraris is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with Philipp Eng for the 2021 season.



The Austrian driver, born in Salzburg on February 28, 1990, is the latest addition to the poker of aces that the Opera-based team will field at the wheel of its Giulia ETCR by Romeo Ferraris as from the next PURE ETCR round in Denmark, in the Copenhagen street track.


Eng is an established professional in the world of motor racing, with successes in single-seaters, namely Formula BMW and Formula Two, and wins in GT from a very young age, first in the Porsche monobrand trophies, then as an official driver for BMW M Motorsport.


Eng is also a multiple 24 Hours winner in Spa and Daytona, and impressed also in its DTM career. For the Munich manufacturer, Philip is a reserve driver in Formula E, and has always shown great interest in electric mobility, which makes him a perfect choice for the the Giulia ETCR by Romeo Ferraris project. Eng will take part in the remaining rounds of the 2021 PURE ETCR season.
 
 

Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager



“I am delighted to welcome Philipp Eng to our team for the PURE ETCR project. He is a racer that I have highly valued since we were both racing for BMW and I am sure he will contribute a lot to our project.


We don't have much time before Copenhagen to introduce him to the car, but the fact that the Danish circuit will be a new circuit for everyone will certainly level the values on the field ”.
 



Philipp Eng


“I am really looking forward to race with the Giulia ETCR by Romeo Ferraris in the PURE ETCR. The car looks amazing and I can’t wait to drive it for the first time, to test it and to get prepared for our first race together in Copenhagen.


I’m very excited to race in this new series and I’m sure it will be a successful experience for both sides. I’ll do my best for the team and I can’t wait to be on track. I want to thank Michela for the trust in me, as well BMW M Motorsport for giving me the chance to race in this championship”.
