Romeo Ferraris announced that Philipp Eng will drive one of the Alfa Romeo Giulia ETCR in the PURE ETCR series from the next round at Copenhagen.
The 31-year-old Austrian has been successful in single-seater and sportscar racing, claiming victories in Spa and Daytona 24 hours. Eng replaces Stefano Coletti who raced the Giulia ETCR in the first two rounds of the season at Vallelunga and MotorLand Aragón.
Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager said: “I am delighted to welcome Philipp Eng to our team for the PURE ETCR project. He is a racer that I have highly valued since we were both racing for BMW, and I am sure he will contribute a lot to our project. We don't have much time before Copenhagen to introduce him to the car, but the fact that the Danish circuit will be newt for everyone will certainly level the field.”
Philipp Eng added: “I am really looking forward to race the Giulia ETCR by Romeo Ferraris in the PURE ETCR. The car looks amazing, and I can’t wait to drive it for the first time, to test it and get prepared for our first race together in Copenhagen. I’m very excited to race in this new series and I’m sure it will be a successful experience for both sides.”
