#RACEATHOME: I need the pressure and the stress from Esports WTCR, says Ehrlacher
WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup title contender Yann Ehrlacher can’t wait for the pre-season Esports WTCR series to begin on 6 April because he’s missing the pressure and stress that comes with racing for real.
Recently announced as part of the Cyan Racing Lynk & Co WTCR line-up alongside his uncle Yvan Muller, Ehrlacher is one of a number of real-life racers preparing to compete at a virtual Hungaroring on Monday evening.
“Driving on the simulator keeps me awake and keeps me fresh to jump back in the car,” said the 23-year-old Frenchman. “I will train and I will take it as a race because I need a bit of pressure, a bit of stress. I will take every single Esports WTCR event as a race to simulate. I will do it properly and hopefully I will end up at the front.”
