WTCR’s youngest winners revealed
When Attila Tassi won Race 2 at WTCR Race of Portugal last month he didn’t quite become the youngest winner in the series aged 22 years and 13 days – but he was close.
In fact, Yann Ehrlacher (pictured) was 21 years, nine months and 24 days when he took the Race 1 laurels at WTCR Race of Hungary in 2018.
Both drivers were competing in Honda Civic Type R TCRs with Tassi representing ALL-INKL.DE Münnich Motorsport and Ehrlacher lining up for ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport.
Santiago Urrutia was 24 years, two months and 16 days when he scored his breakthrough WTCR success at MotorLand Aragón in Spain last November. However, the Cyan Performance Lynk & Co driver from Uruguay doesn’t actually make it into the top five youngest winners in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup as the following list reveals.
