Milford, CT – GenRacer are poised to capitalize on the 2021 season with a two-car campaign in SRO TC America. Last season was not short on unique challenges. The constrained season due to the global pandemic seemed to put the brakes on anything race related. However, team owner and driver Jeff Ricca isn’t someone who let these obstacles stifle development and progress heading into 2021 – forging new relationships with Liqui Moly and XClutch.
“When Hyundai announced the release of the Veloster N with a new DCT transmission, I knew we needed to get our hands on the platform” Ricca said. “Hyundai is constantly innovating and consistently investing into the racing and performance spaces, so the team needs to stay on the bleeding edge of that effort. LiquiMoly and XClutch share similar goals and it’s why 2021 will be our most successful year.”
With Ricca occupying the seat in the new DCT Veloster N – the manual transmission car will be driven by Michael Sousa and a new face to the team, Kurt Washeim. Sousa and Washeim both cut their teeth through club racing for years and they both step into their first pro racing experiences in 2021. “We have high expectations for Sonoma to establish some well-overdue setup adjustments we learned from the 2020 season” says Sousa. “it was challenging not having a full season of events last year, but if there’s one thing the GenRacer team is known for – it’s being quick to adapt to new platforms and conditions.”
