No Josh Files in six car Target lineup

Target Competition will not run 2016 TCR Germany champion Josh Files in this year’s championship in an expanded six car lineup which includes four of the new Audi RS3 LMS cars alongside the two Honda Civics they ran last year.

Whilst Files is yet to confirm his plans for the coming season he has expressed a desire to move to the World Touring Car Championship now that they have introduced TCN2/TCR rules as a secondary class to the TC1 cars.

Italian squad Target yesterday unveiled the liveries of the new Audis, sticking with their trademark blue on three of the cars for Tim Zimmermann, Simon Larsson and lady racer Gosia Rdest with Tom Lautenschlager running in a green colour scheme.

Reigning European Touring Car Cup champion Kris Richard moves over to TCR Germany in one of Target’s Civics, similar to the Rikli Motorsport car he drove to overall honours last season, partnered by Jurgen Schmarl.
