Comtoyou Racing expand to four cars, add Frédéric Vervisch and Nathanaël Berthon

Comtoyou Racing will run four cars in this year’s World Touring Car Cup, confirming Audi Sport customer racing driver Frédéric Vervisch will remain with the team, while single-seater star Nathanaël Berthon will make his touring car debut with the team in Morocco in April.

Vervisch joined the team from the third round of the championship last year, drafted in to support Stefano Comini’s title tilt in the then all-new Audi RS 3 LMS. The 31-year-old Belgian also continued with a GT programme with Team WRT, with which he’s had a three-year association.

28-year-old Frenchman Nathanaël Berthon will also join the team as a privateer entry, joining the already announced pair of Aurélien Panis and Denis Dupont, which brings the number of confirmed Audis on the grid to six with Team WRT confirming a two-car programme with Jean-Karl Vernay and Gordon Shedden.
