Hyundai “fully committed” in customer support for teams in TCR Germany

Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing has emphasized that it will continue to support customer teams in TCR Germany following the split between Hyundai Germany and Engstler Motorsport.

“Hyundai Motorsport is fully committed to supporting our i30 N TCR customers in TCR Germany for the 2022 season,” said Andrew Johns, Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing Manager, to TouringCarTimes.

“While Hyundai Germany, sadly, have chosen to end their incredibly successful partnership with the Engstler Motorsport in the championship this relationship was always separate from the efforts of the Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing support engineers and after-sales staff based in Alzenau, Germany.”

Engstler Motorsport announced that it will switch from Hyundai to Honda for 2022 but still provide support to the ROJA Motorsport team that will run three i30 N TCRs in TCR Germany.

“All our customers in the series this year will be able to rely on the same high level of service they have come to expect in previous seasons that has established Hyundai teams as the clear benchmark in the paddock,” said Johns.

“Hyundai customer drivers and teams have won the teams’ and drivers’ title in each of the last three seasons, and we look forward to adding this superb record in 2022.”
