Belgium’s DG Sport Compétition has announced that after one year in the TCR Europe Trophy, it is to step up to the TCR International Series for 2017, with a two car entry.

As in its maiden year, DG Sport’s participation in the TCR International Series will be supported by Opel Motorsport, Kissling and DG Sport Compétition as the car is continued to be developed. Two Opel Astra will be entered in the increasingly popular competition, as new constructors and more teams join the fold.

DG Sport has confirmed that it is looking to resign Pierre-Yves Corthals, once his own sponsorship has been confirmed, and that it is looking for a ‘stalwart’ who will also bring their own budget to the team. 

“I must admit that I am proud of the trust that Opel Motorsport have placed in us”, explained Christian Jupsin, project leader at DG Sport Compétition. “It’s a wonderful reward for the hard work put in by the entire team. We will be taking on the TCR International Series 2017 with the same objective that has always been ours up until now, in fact in all the championships that we have ever competed in: we will be out to play a leading role as quickly as possible!”

The TCR International Series 2017 will kick-off on the 2nd April at the new Rustavi Motorpark circuit in Georgia.
