Romeo Ferraris adds Bruno Spengler to its driver lineup for the FIA ETCR 2022

Romeo Ferraris is pleased to announce the third driver chosen for the 2022 FIA ETCR season: Bruno Spengler joins the line-up along the previously announced Maxime Martin and Luca Filippi, and is ready for his competitive debut in electric motorsport at the wheel of the Giulia ETCR designed and built by the Opera-based constructor.



In the 2018-2019 season, the French-Canadian played the role of test an reserve driver in Formula E, also participating in the Marrakech rookie test and various private practice sessions, his first contact with zero-emission racing cars. In his curriculum stands out his past in the DTM, of which he contested 15 editions between 2005 and 2019.



Spengler won the 2012 title of the German Touring car series, finished twice as runner-up (2006 and 2007) and three times third (2010, 2011 and 2013). Spengler has established himself among the most successful drivers ever in the DTM, conquering a total of 14 victories, 38 podium finishes, 17 pole-positions and 14 fastest laps, defending the colours of two different and important manufacturers.



Spengler has also gained experience in endurance competitions, both with GT models and prototypes, in prestigious series such as the WEC, the American IMSA series, and recently also in the Italian GT Championship. In parallel, Bruno has participated in numerous virtual races, showing a passion for all-round racing.



Romeo Ferraris will soon reveal the name of the fourth driver who will complete the line-up for the FIA ETCR 2022.





Bruno Spengler


"I am approaching my debut in the FIA ETCR championship with great enthusiasm, returning to being involved in Touring racing but this time with fully electric cars. I have already had experience as a test driver in Formula E, discovering the potential of this technology, but the race sensations it offers are something completely different.


Last year, as a spectator, I appreciated Romeo Ferraris' ability to bring a competitive project like the Giulia ETCR to the track. Now it will be nice to be able to give my contribution and fight together for prestigious results. On a personal level, it will be interesting to start the season on the Pau street circuit, where I raced 18 years ago, and to revive the beginnings of my career".




Michela Cerruti, Team Principal Romeo Ferraris


"Having Bruno, one of the most successful drivers in the DTM, joining our team testifies two things: the potential of our Giulia ETCR is recognized and, at the same time, a championship for fully electric touring cars arouses great attraction also among established names, now even more thanks to the FIA label.


We are proud to have accepted this challenge from the beginning and to now welcome Bruno in our team. Putting together our mutual experiences can play a leading role right from the first round in the calendar".
