Part 2 of Gabriele Tarquini's WTCR Fast Talk podcast presented by Goodyear now available

22.05.2020: Gabriele Tarquini goes racing because it’s what makes him tick. And while the COVID-19 outbreak has rightly put the brakes on motorsport, the Italian cannot wait for track action to resume.

 

Gabriele Tarquini goes racing because it’s what makes him tick. And while the COVID-19 outbreak has rightly put the brakes on motorsport, the Italian cannot wait for track action to resume.


“I enjoy racing but I have not driven a car for four months and I want to be back,” Tarquini tells host Martin Haven in the latest episode of WTCR Fast Talk presented Goodyear, the official podcast from FIA − WTCR World Touring Car Cup promoter Eurosport Events.



“I dream to be back sitting behind the steering wheel, fighting for the tenths, improving the car. The passion is still there and that’s never ended.”



A racing career that began in Italian Formula 3 in 1983, following world championship success in karting, took Tarquini to Formula One, countless race wins and titles in touring cars and at least two intentions to quit. Thankfully he never went through with those plans on either occasion, and is eagerly waiting to take up his drive in a BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Squadra Corse for 2020, aged 58.



Following part one on Wednesday, part two today (Friday), returns to 1996 with Tarquini covering racing for Honda, returning to Alfa Romeo, heading back to Honda, leaving for LADA, seeking out new opportunities with Hyundai and returning to FIA World Touring Car racing to claim the inaugural WTCR title in 2018, nine years after he became world champion.



Here’s a guide to what’s coming up in part two:
