Show Notes

Gilles Magnus, the 20-year-old Belgian, is stepping up to the WTCR − FIA World Touring Car Cup this season as a contender for the new Rookie Driver Award.

With the support of the RACB National Team, the talent search and development programme from Belgium’s national ASN, Magnus had been set for a second season in TCR Europe. But with WTCR switching to a six-event, Europe-only format for this season in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the opportunity arose for Magnus to graduate to the TCR category’s top tier.
