Daniel Lloyd is set for a return to endurance racing in Italy next month after being called up as part of Brutal Fish by KCMG line-up for the Creventic Monza 12h on July 10-11.
The 28-year-old will contest the TCR Class in the latest round of the Pan-European 24h series alongside his TCR Europe team-mates, Martin Ryba and Pepe Oriola.
The entry marks an extended joint project between Slovakian-based Brutal Fish Racing Team and Hong Kong-based KCMG (KC Motorgroup Ltd) following the recent successful partnership in the TCR Europe and Malaysia Series.
Lloyd celebrated a podium finish for the Brutal Fish Racing Team on his last visit to the World famous Autodromo Nazionale Monza circuit, with KCMG forming part of the squad’s 4-car effort in the 2019 season finale, before championing the squad’s TCR Malaysia efforts earlier this year, where he finished as Vice-Champion.
“This news couldn’t have come at a better time;” commented Lloyd. “We hadn’t expected to be racing so soon again this season, but we’re up for the challenge.
“I can’t wait to get back out in the Honda Type R and to be back with the team again. It feels like an age ago since we were last out on track.”
KCMG has vast experience in running successful campaigns in both TCR and Endurance Series, including a victory in the prestigious Le Man 24 hours and major TCR titles in Europe and Japan and will provide the Honda Civic Type R TCR machines and technical support for the Brutal Fish Racing Team throughout the 12h contest.
“The joint project between Brutal Fish and KCMG has a great track record, and with additional technical support from JAS Motorsport, I feel sure that we’ll be right in the thick of the action.”
“It’s been a few years since I last shared a car, but I have two great team-mates in Martin Ryba and Pepe Oriola. It will be a great way to kick-start our season off again ahead of the TCR Europe opener at the end of August.”
The Creventic Monza 12h takes place at Monza Autodromo Nazionale circuit on July 10-11.
Qualifying for the 12-hour race takes place at 11.30 local time (10.30 UK time) on Friday, July 10 with the opening 4-hour stint scheduled for 15.00 local time (14.00 UK time).
