Having an active racing career that marked 32 years in 2021 Tom Coronel can be called one of Dutch most successful and active racing drivers. This Dutch personality has been added to our list of clients. We are very proud to be able to work with Tom Coronel and create this truly unique mug for him. After creating an already a unique mug for the Coronel Dakar Team we can show this new mug!
Tom Coronel started racing in 1990 at the Dutch Citroën AX Cup. With four victories and 105 points he won the title; he also won an international Citroën AX race in Barcelona. He moved up to the Dutch Touring Car Championship in 1992 but real success came from racing abroad in Japan at the Formula 3 Championship with TOM’S in 1997. It gave him the opportunity to test with F1 Racingteam Arrows.
Later throughout his career he focused mainly on competing in Touring Car Championships and the famous Dakar Rally he is driving together with his brother Tim Coronel. Amazing achievements are driving the 24-hours with Le Mans with several teams such as the Spyker Squadron. Currently he is driving at Comtoyou DHL Team Audi Sport. His current choice for racing in 2021, 32, represents the number of years he’s been racing. Said can be that Tom Coronal isn’t a very active racing driver for decades, he is a TV-personality in the Netherlands. You can find him commenting during the F1-season and giving his technical feedback as a driving expert.
The design of the Automotive Mug of Tom Coronel is based on the livery of his current racing car, the Audi RS3 LMS. Weighing just under 1300 kg and being powered by a strong 330 hp 4 cylinder racing engine it’s a powerful track weapon. The livery is unique and very outspoken. His supporting partners, TripCorp, Eurol, Eru Prestige, DHL, Ireckonu and FEBO can be found in this mug. The finish of this car mug with the slogan of Tom, “Eat my dust - Cheese” is printed at a visible spot on the mug. They are being offered in a limited production run and available at the website of Tom Coronel.
