Two More Megane TCR Sold To Successful Swiss Team Wolf Power Racing
Great Interest For The Vukovic TCR Cars At The Essen Motorshow
Winter Tests To Start In Magny-Cours
The 2017 TCR Germany runner up Swiss team Wolf Power Racing (www.wolf-power-racing.com) will campaign two Megane TCR in the German Series next season. Milenko Vukovic and the brothers Adrian and Raphael Wolf have great respect for the work of each other. “We have been deeply impressed by the quality of the work done by Vukovic Motorsport. Our target for 2018 is clearly to fight for the Championship title in the TCR Germany and the choices done to make the Megane TCR a very competitive package were key elements to our choice” said the brothers Wolf.
“The careful selection of partners who were sharing my philosophy when conceiving the Megane TCR is now paying off. I am very happy to have 3MO for the transmission, Lehmann Motorentechnik for the engine, Bosch Motorsport for the electronics, OZ Racing for the wheels and Panolin AG for the special lubricants” said Milenko Vukovic.
The two cars displayed at the Essen Motorshow are attracting the specialists to the BESA Group booth. After an initial roll out, the next step is now to bring the car to the suspension partner KW in Germany to optimize torsion and suspension on their special rig and then to undergo an intensive winter test program, starting with a first couple of days in Magny-Cours (France).
Vukovic has carefully listened to inputs from different drivers and has implemented changes in the cockpit accordingly. This, with the quality of the work done, gives the right level of confidence to start the winter testing program running.
The goal of this important step of the program is prove that all the energy and passion put into this project match with the targeted level of performance. Things will be taken step by step and the aim is to learn more and more as the winter program develops.
The Megane TCR by Vukovic Motorsport in its full sprint race specifications (as per technical data sheet below) is offered at the price of 130.000€ + VAT when applicable. The delivery time is 6 to 8 weeks’ time, depending on long lead parts availability.
