Why WTCR team boss Münnich’s winning feeling has continued
René Münnich’s winning feeling has continued this week with confirmation that his ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport team will field an all-star line-up in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO in 2019.
After claiming a TCR Middle East victory double in Dubai last Friday in one of his squad’s Honda Civic Type R TCRs, Münnich reverted to his role as Team Principal today to officially confirm Esteban Guerrieri and Néstor Girolami will race for his Germany-based outfit in WTCR / OSCARO season two.
He said: “We are very happy to continue to race the Honda Civic Type R TCR in the 2019 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup. Since entering World Touring Cars in 2013, we have gained in competitiveness year-on-year and in the WTCR in 2018 we achieved our best-ever season in the discipline with four race wins and third place in the Drivers’ and Teams’ championships.
“The Civic Type R TCR is an extremely strong car, around which we’re excited to build our programme and in Esteban and ‘Bebu’ we have two front-running drivers who are as eager to challenge for the title as we are.”
Masashi Yamamoto, General Manager of Motor Sports Division, Honda Motor Co., said: “We were pleased with the performance and commitment of ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport in 2018 and are very happy that they have chosen to race the Civic Type R TCR this year.”
