Interview with Milenko Vukovic from Vukovic Motorsport about Megane TCR.

Some insights
-Eric Neve connected Vukovic and Renault Sport
-They had problems with engine builder last year, so now they are building engine by themselves
-Stefano Comini was set to race Renault last year, but there was no money
-Engine is based on Clio 1.6 block, that was enlarged to 1.8.
And then they installed crankshaft from Nissan Sentra.
At the end Turbo is from Mercedes A-Class.

About how GRM choose Renault
And about Bennani, Ehrlacher tested the car.
Also Mulller wanted to test it, but Neve didn't allowed It since Muller have contract with Lynk&Co

In general it is Renault engine, thats the main focus. I don't understand, why they don't use the 1,8 engine of Megane RS itself (also used in new Alpine)?


Regarding turbo - i don't think, the Alfa turbo is the one from the original car, and of course no brand makes their own turbo (its mostly Garrett, IHI, KKK, etc.)

Yes - as they use a 2.0-engine, same as in road car. It will be easy to go to 350hp then. But normally turbocharger from cars like 1.8 Alfa Giulietta will be not having more than 300hp, even in race spec...
