A German in the World Touring Car Cup
The WTCR starts the new season at the weekend. A German is there: Luca Engstler. These are his goals.
JThe touring car world cup is now starting, after a long break due to the corona pandemic. A young German is there: Luca Engstler, son of touring car legend Franz Engstler.
In 2019, he made six guest starts in the WTCR. Still, he’s a rookie. Engstler: “Gabriele Tarquini has already driven the DTM car, I wasn’t born then. So it is difficult to set concrete goals. For me it is not important, let’s say second, I want to get the best out of it and win the rookie title. “
The aforementioned Tarquini, a former Formula 1 driver, is not a bit tired of racing even at 58. In 2018 he won the title for Hyundai, in 2019 his teammate Norbert Michelisz, for whose racing team Engstler competed in TCR Europe in 2019. Hyundai is one of the favorites again in 2020.
