Team Mulsanne announced that 2017 TCR International Series champion Jean-Karl Vernay will drive the team’s Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce built by Romeo Ferraris in the WTCR.

Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager, commented: “We are extremely happy to welcome Jean-Karl in our family. We think that Vernay offers solid certainties, which is what we need in this ambitious programme."

Vernay said: “I am delighted for this agreement with Team Mulsanne to drive the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce. In recent years, I have had the opportunity to know Team Mulsanne and I am very happy to join them."

"Although Romeo Ferraris is certainly a smaller constructor compared to the other brands, I was always impressed by their passion and determination and by the results they were able to conquer in WTCR."

"I’m confident that together we can be consistent and for this reason our target is to make the top-ten in the standings. I’m really looking forward to the start of the season after such a long break and I feel completely boosted."
