WTCR-bound Engstler Elantras ready to rock the Ring
The eye-catching colour scheme that will appear on the two Hyundai Elantra N TCRs entered by Engstler Hyundai N Liqui Moly Racing Team in this season’s WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup has been shown in public for the first time.
Featuring a blend of light blue, dark blue and red, the livery design incorporates significant Liqui Moly and N branding.
Germany’s Luca Engstler, the 21-year-old son of Team Principal Franz Engstler and Frenchman Jean-Karl Vernay will drive the Goodyear-equipped Elantra N TCRs in 2021, starting with this week’s WTCR Race of Germany on the Nürburgring Nordschleife from June 3-5.
“It is fantastic we will be on home soil for the first event of the year; racing at the Nürburgring is always a huge challenge, and it will also be our first event racing with the Hyundai Elantra N TCR,” said Franz Engstler, Team Principal of Engstler Hyundai N Liqui Moly Racing Team. “The entire team will have to be fully focused to ensure we have the best weekend possible, but we are confident that our preparations will pay off in Germany.”
