Luca Engstler confirmed as second entry for TCR Middle East

16-year-old Luca Engstler has become the second driver confirmed for the inaugural TCR Middle East race next weekend in Dubai.

“It will be my first ever race in a touring car and, of course, I am a bit nervous,” said Engstler. “But I am also very happy and still can´t believe that my debut will be in Dubai.”

Engstler will drive the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR with which he will also compete in the 2017 TCR Germany series.

“I am proud to be part of the TCR family. I think it´s one of the best platforms in automobile sport. The Middle East series will be the perfect training for TCR Germany and my goal is to learn as much as possible during these three events,” added Engstler.
