2023 JUNIOR TROPHY CHAMPION and OVERALL VICE-CHAMPION René Kircher @renekircher remains with the team for 2024. His strong attitude and professional approach have made him an integral part of the TCR squad of MERTEL Motorsport and good performance makes him hungry for more! Again supported by his entire family, René will push the team and himself above limits!


P4 overall in 2023 was not the perfect result Davit @davitkajaia was aiming for and therefore he will do everything together with MERTEL Motorsport to put the national flag of Georgia on top of the podium in 2024. Owning an incredible amount of racing experience, David is the pivotal point of improving driving and processes within the team. Supported by the whole country of Georgia, David will be racing for front row positions!
