Leading WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup drivers Yann Ehrlacher and Yvan Muller will be on hand to provide expert coaching to the winner of a new prize-drive initiative.

Ehrlacher and his uncle and Cyan Racing Lynk & Co WTCR team-mate Muller are joining forces to guide the recipient of the Talent MRacing X Ligier scholarship during a season in the Ligier European Series.

Muller’s MRacing team will run the eventual winner in one of its Ligier JS2 R in 2022, while a two-day selection process at the Magny-Cours circuit in France from November 25-26 will determine the recipient of the prize, which is worth 100,000 euros.

“Many drivers have succeeded in making a career in motorsport thanks to initiatives such as this,” said Muller of the initiative that has been developed in conjunction with gentleman driver Laurent Millara. “We launched a similar project a few years ago with a selection process on a simulator. Laurent and I have been working since then to revive this project and help a driver get his or her start in endurance racing.”
