A new thread for the 2021 season.

(2020 thread here: Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, 2020 USA racing season ; 2019 thread here ALFA Giulietta QV for IMSA)

KMW Motorsports with TMR Engineering will run a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCR RF for the entire 2021 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge series once again with Roy Block and Tim Lewis, Jr. See last page of 2020 thread posting by TMR Engineering for more photos.

Louis Milone, Team Principal, says that the Veloce is the latest racer out of Romeo Ferraris. It is different enough from the previous race cars that it had to be re-homologated, thus the addition of "Veloce" to the model name. Louis feels very good about this car.

First race of the year is this Friday, January 29, at Daytona. A four-hour endurance race starting at 1:30PM Eastern time.


There are 16 TCR entries: 8 Hyundais, 4 Hondas, 3 Audis, and the Alfa.

Thanks, Maldi, for the time for the race. Hope it's on TrackPass, which is better than nothing, although not by much.

KMW has the Veloce at Daytona, and they're very happy with it.

I have to agree about the "poorly driven Honda."

I think there was a very good chance the Alfa drivers could have been on the first step of the podium. The new car is fast!

The Giulietta Veloce is fast and is now one of the best in TCR; their 3 hours or running showed that. The drivers are both quite good. Tim Lewis, Jr. put the Alfa second on the TCR grid, and Roy Block ran the second fastest TCR race lap.

Hopefully the damage isn't horrible. Sebring is only 3 weeks away.

Signed up with Track Pass to see the race and managed to mess up my login. NBC Sports help desk got it fixed as soon as I requested help. Good service and now I can enjoy seeing the races this season!

The KMW Veloce is being repaired, and Louis Milone says it will be 100% for the Sebring race.

The April issue of Alfa Owner will cover the Roar and the Daytona TCR race.
