Indianapolis, Indiana (November 2nd, 2018) – Juncos Racing is pleased to announce their support for the 2017 Pro Mazda Presented by Cooper Tires Champion Victor Franzoni as he competes in the prestigious 200km of Buenos Aires in the Super TC2000 series this weekend.

Franzoni was recently selected by the official team of Renault and invited to compete in one of the biggest events of the Super TC2000 season located in Juncos Racing Team Owner Ricardo Juncos’s hometown of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The young Brazilian will join Ambrogio Racing and share driving duties of the No. 8 Renault Fluence GT with teammate Martín Moggia. This will be Franzoni’s first appearance at the Autódromo Oscar and Juan Gálvez, a 2.1 mile, 14-Turn road course.

“I’m very excited for this new challenge I’ll have this weekend after a great full season in the Indy Lights Series with Juncos Racing,” said Franzoni. “I’m going to Ricardo’s (Juncos) home country to race in one of the top series in Argentina, the Super TC2000. It will be awesome because the cars are super fast and have around 450 horsepower and front-wheel drive. This will be really different from what I am used to racing. The drivers are top level so it wont be easy, but I will learn the track and car as fast as I can and we will see what happens. I will be sharing the car with Martin Moggia, a great driver with a lot of experience with this car. I want to thank Juncos Racing for all of their support as I go to their country and live a new experience!”

Marcel Ambrogio, Director General Renault Sport Super TC2000 said, “It is a pleasure to have Victor on our team for a traditional race like the 200km of Buenos Aires. He will be competing with Martin Moggia, one of the young drivers in the series who has already demonstrated his skills and has everything he needs for a win at anytime. We have heard very good references about Victor. He is a driver that has excelled in everything he has competed in and we are looking forward to seeing him in this car for the first time. Both drivers form an interesting duo.”

Juncos Racing Team Owner Ricardo Juncos said, “I am very happy to see Victor Franzoni racing in my home country of Argentina. The level of racing in Argentina is very high. He will be racing in one of the top classes in the country, the Super TC2000 and sharing the car with a great driver. It will be good to see how Victor adapts to the car as this will be his first time in this type of car and at this track. It will be a challenge, but I am confident he will find success. It’s great to see him there and I am very happy for him. My dad is going to be there at the race track with Victor and the team, so he will have part of his Juncos family there to support him. I have a lot of friends from Argentina racing in this category. I am looking forward to hearing how this experience goes for Victor and the feedback he has. Everyone at Juncos Racing wishes him the best of luck in this new adventure this weekend.”

Franzoni will also compete against Santiago Urrutia, a former competitor in the 2018 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires Championship this weekend.
