Swiss team Vuković Motorsport has unveiled a TCR-specification Renault Mégane, which is set to hit the circuit in 2018 after receiving manufacturer authorization from the French OEM.
Renault has commissioned the team to design, build, develop, race and eventually sell the car on its behalf. The first rolling chassis has now been completed and an ‘intensive’ testing schedule will begin soon.
“We have put all our energies and resources in this project with which we want to demonstrate the benefits of our systematic and high-quality approach to ultimate performances within the given rules,” said team owner Milenko Vuković. “We wanted the Mégane TCR to have all the ingredients it takes for being a sound and competitive car out of the box.”
The outfit are now focused on working on the engine set-up, while at the same time the intensive development program is being prepared. Once the TCR homologation process is complete, the cars are to be offered to other teams for sale.
