WTCR champion Norbert Michelisz joins TCR Germany races at Nürburgring

The reigning World Touring Car Cup champion Norbert Michelisz will make a one-off appearance in the TCR Germany championship races at the Nürburgring this weekend.

“It is always a big challenge to take part in a new championship,” said Michelisz.

“This is all the more true this time because I have never driven on the short track of the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. But as a racing driver you are always looking for challenges and I am very happy about the chance to be part of the ADAC TCR Germany this weekend.”

The Hungarian will drive a Hyundai i30 N TCR prepared by Team Engstler as preparation for the 2020 WTCR season start at the Salzburgring on September 12-13.

“TCR Germany is one of the best national TCR championships and it has been seen in recent years that the drivers who are at the forefront there can also be successful in other, international TCR series,” said Michelisz.
