Regarding this program at TCR South America, Nestor Girolami He noted: «Everything started to take shape with a shakedown. The Chetta Racing team asked me to get in their car and do a shakedown to prepare your participation in the TCR South America. Everything went very well and after testing at the Tazio Nuvolari circuit, in Italy, this great opportunity has arisen. It is the first time that Honda is going to compete in Argentina in these terms, so I am happy to help them. Hopefully we can have great success in Argentina and in the rest of the countries where the championship is held.
