Discovering the next WTCR ace Mehdi Bennani?
Teenage Moroccan Sami Taoufik will follow in the wheel tracks of his illustrious compatriot Mehdi Bennani when he races a TCR car this weekend.
Taoufik has joined Comtoyou Racing for the ADAC TCR Germany finale at the Sachsenring. He will also drive for the Belgian squad, a double winner in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO with Frédéric Vervisch, when Monza hosts the TCR Europe season closer next month.
Winner of the CIK-FIA European Karting title in 2017, Taoufik has built his experience in single-seater racing of late but switches to an Audi RS 3 LMS for his ADAC TCR Germany debut.
Bennani, a WTCR / OSCARO race winner and member of the SLR VW Motorsport team, also raced in single-seaters before his hugely successful switch to FIA World Touring Car racing.
Meanwhile, ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport founder and owner, René Münnich will race a Honda Civic Type R TCR for his team at Sachsenring. ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport is currently second in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO for Teams with five race wins so far in 2019.
