El Super Renault Sport Castrol Team TC2000 was formally presented and confirmed by the staff of pilots, managers and technicians that, in the season 2020, will defend the number 1 in the most technological division of South America.
The Rhombus team maintains the same winning structure with minimal changes: under the sports direction of Michelangelo Guerra and with technical management of Ambrogio Racing, the four names that will defend the colors of the French brand over the Fluence GT sound Leonel Pernía, current champion; Facundo Ardusso, monarch in 2017 and 2018; Matías Milla y Tomás Gagliardi Genné.
“That thing about 'the difficult thing is not to arrive but to stay'… it may be true. I got where I wanted to: fight every year for number one. It cost me a lot, there were five runners-up and I never let up. This title, on the one hand, gives me peace of mind and takes that pressure off me ..., but on the other, I don't want to let go of it and I'm going to defend it with everything. I will run more liberated and more motivated ", said Pernía.
“It will be a very competitive year, with regulatory changes that, I think, will be for the better. The cars are prettier and, dynamically, more similar to the ones we drove in 2016, 2017 and 2018. That means they will be much faster and lap times will lower: we will get to the corners faster, we will brake much further in and logically we will go out earlier too ", Ardusso analyzed.
“During this break I worked a lot on the physical set-up and I arrived in the best shape. I'm plugged in, it will be a very demanding championship ”, Milla explained. While Gagliardi Genné noted: “I am very happy to become the champion team. Without a doubt, it is a very important step in my career. In 2019 I completed my first season in the category and I come in a very intense line of learning ”.
