Yann Ehrlacher is part of a growing list of exciting young talents with experience of racing in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.

After winning twice in 2018 in an ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport Honda Civic Type R TCR, Ehrlacher has been recruited to drive a Geely Group Motorsport-developed Lynk & Co 03 TCR for Cyan Racing in 2019.

Christian Dahl, CEO of Cyan Racing, explained why the 22-year-old from France was his (young) man for job.

“Yann has impressed us all with his speed and maturity relative to his young age, we haven’t seen a young talent like him in many years,” said Dahl. “He completes our line-up for the 2019 FIA WTCR in the best possible way alongside our experienced drivers [Thed Björk, Yvan Muller and Andy Priaulx].”

WTCR / OSCARO season two begins in Marrakech, Morocco, from 5-7 April.
