Eye of the tiger: Guerrieri’s WTCR number design explained
Esteban Guerrieri has explained the number design he has developed for this season’s WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.
Promoter Eurosport Events has invited the all-season WTCR / OSCARO racers to create their own number design for 2019, having allowed them to choose their race number since the inaugural season.
While the individual designs won’t feature on the sides or windscreens of the competing cars in accordance with the WTCR / OSCARO sporting regulations from the FIA, they will have a number of uses to appeal to fans.
Guerrieri’s now-familiar 86 has a tiger as its centrepiece, as the ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport Honda Civic Type R TCR driver explained. “The tiger is not my favourite animal but it’s solitary, it follows its prey, analyses the situation and when it attacks it’s very decisive, which is a bit like my personality in some ways although I’m not solitary! I’m very open and social but there are times when I like to be alone to work, to improve myself in every area. Plus, there is the eyes. Many people highlight my eyes as one of my main features, like I have the eyes of a tiger.”
