Pierre Runic Announces 2018 TCR International Project

Pierre Runic has confirmed today that he intends to race full time in the 2018 TCR International Series.

The Swedish driver, working in conjunction with Swedish outfit RaceMedia.net, is currently in final negotiations with a prominent and well known team who has competed in both the TCR International Series and made regular appearances in domestic TCR series as well.

The identity of the team he will be competing for and also which car he will be driving will be released in the very near future.

The programme that’s in place for Runic includes seat time during some 2017 TCR based events, also to be confirmed at a later date.

Pierre Runic has mainly competed in international karting series where he has accomplished more than 140 international race starts. During the last three years, Pierre has scored many race wins as well as winning the Rotax Max Sportstil Cup in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia twice and been a member of the exclusive Intrepid Drives Program.

He has also successfully qualified in two Rotax Max Grand Finals, what is seen as the recognised official World Championship in karting.

Despite the tight time frame to work on completing the plans for their entry in the 2018 TCR International Series, both RaceMedia.net and Pierre Runic are working together on a professional racing fitness program alongside with simulator sessions and a diversity of other relevant activities that will prepare the Swedish driver for his move to Top flight Touring Car competition.

With preparation underway to have Runic ready for the first round of the series, this will also show the growing potential of this young driver in what is now regarded as one of the most competitive International Touring Car series at this time to be involved in.

Hi, I've been a fan of motorsport for over the past 30 years, following everything from Single Seaters to Touring Cars and to Rallycross. I started writing a blog back in March 2013 on Blogger as Tintop Guru and since then I have written articles and reports on the FIA World Touring Car Championship, The FIA World Rallycross Championship and the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship as well as sharing my thoughts on current Motorsport matters. In 2016 My blog was used to report on the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship and The TCR International Series. I write FIA World Rallycross Championship and FIA European Rallycross Championship reports for www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk and I was an official blogger for the 2015 Autosport International Show. From April 2018, the blog will concentrate solely on the TCR UK Touring Car Championship and the TCR Europe Touring Car Championship.
