Nagy aims for confidence boost in WTCR
Dániel Nagy plans to use his wildcard status at WTCR Race of Hungary to boost his confidence ahead of his TCR Europe programme getting underway next month.
Nagy is no stranger to world touring car racing having spent two seasons in the WTCC with Zengő Motorsport. Although TCR Europe will be the Nagy’s focus in 2018, his home round of the WTCR provides the perfect platform for the 20-year-old and his M1RA team to impress.
“My main aim this year is being competitive in TCR Europe with M1RA and the Hyundai i30 N TCR, but I am extremely motivated by this opportunity in WTCR, especially in front of a home crowd,” said Nagy. “I raced on home soil in the WTCC last year for first time and it will be a lifelong memory for me. This time I will drive exactly the same car as the other Hyundai drivers, so I am very curious what I can achieve in this excessively strong competition. I hope I can improve my confidence a bit with a good result one week before the start of TCR Europe.”
WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO visits Hungaroring from 27-29 April.
