TCR Italy - Andrea Argenti returns in his Opel Astra

11.03.2020: Andrea Argenti confirmed we will be racing again in the TCR Italy championship in 2020. Argenti will stay at the wheel of the Opel Astra that is raced under the banner of the South Italy Racing Team.

Andrea Argenti confirmed we will be racing again in the TCR Italy championship in 2020. Argenti will stay at the wheel of the Opel Astra that is raced under the banner of the South Italy Racing Team.




“It’s a car from 2017 and a bit fragile, but we are confident that we can work on it and make it competitive,” Argenti said.


Last year the driver from Rome faced a number of technical issues during the season and his best result was a sixth place at Monza.



“My goal is to finish the championship among the top-five. I know it will be tough, because the level of the competitors will be high, but I am confident it could be within reach.”
