After racing in a Hyundai Elantra N in the 2022 TCR Europe, Felice Jelmini will switch to a second-generation Audi RS 3 LMS for the 2023 season.

“I couldn’t ask for better for the new season. To race with PMA Motorsport in TCR Europe has a very special meaning to me. It’s now seven years that I’ve been part of this wonderful family with which I’ve achieved important results.

We have a car that should give us the possibility to fight on equal terms with all top-level competitors, and we have the know-how necessary to be competitive straight away.

We will work together with determination and desire to write an important page of our history,” Jelmini said.
