Gary Sheehan to drive third Volkswagen for Team Engstler

Two-time USTCC champion Gary Sheehan is going to drive a third Volkswagen Golf for Team Engstler at Oschersleben this weekend.

“This is a dream coming true for me. I am super-excited to be debuting in the TCR International Series this weekend and I am thankful to TCR, USTCC, Liqui Moly Team Engstler and everybody who made this possible,” said Sheehan.

”I also thank JBR who gave me the possibility to test for a couple of laps yesterday with one of their SEAT cars. It will be a great opportunity to be at the wheel of a TCR car and I look forward to the fun and to seeing where I stand with respect to great drivers racing in the series.”

The American claimed the 2000 and 2014 US Touring Car Championship titles and has finished second four times, including last season.

“Gary is one of the top USTCC drivers and it’s nice to see him having this opportunity to show his talents to a much wider audience. This hopefully will open the doors to seeing more USTCC drivers in TCR. That would be a great promotion for the TCR concept in America, right ahead the start of the TCR Las Américas series later this year,” said USTCC promoter Ali Arsham.
