Zengő Motorsport confirms Rob Huff and Dániel Nagy for 2022

Zengő Motorsport will be back on the FIA WTCR grid for 2022, reducing its line-up from four to two cars for Rob Huff and Dániel Nagy.

“I don’t want to say what we can achieve because we will see in the end of the season, but we are very confident with our two drivers, Rob Huff and Dani Nagy,” said Zoltán Zengő, team principal of Zengő Motorsport.

“We have the experience, talent and knowledge of Huffy and we know he can bring everything out of the car and everything out of himself. At the same time, he will motivate Dani and he will help him grow and help him find his precision on track. We believe this is a very good line-up to have a former champion and a young Hungarian talent in our team.”

Huff joined the team ahead of 2021 and endured a tough comeback season, finishing 18th overall with one victory in the season finale at Sochi.

“There’s the age-old saying that you’re only good as your last race and we won both of them,” said Huff.

“With Zengő we’re both old enough and wise enough with enough experience to know that it’s going to be a difficult start to the season because things have come together quite late on the surface, but there’s nothing that’s out of our reach.

“We’re confident with the car we have, we’re confident with the ability we have altogether and it’s our job to put everything we can into the first race and go from there and that’s what we intend to do. But the WTCR is a world series and we’re up against the best drivers and teams in the world on the most challenging circuits in the world.

“It’s never easy but between myself and the Zengő team we have full confidence in what we’re doing and we’re going to do everything we can to show that confidence on track.”

Nagy returns to the WTCR after a season in PURE ETCR with Zengo where he finish eighth. The Hungarian spent two seasons in TCR Europe prior to that with BRC Racing, finishing eighth in 2020.

“Rob was always really nice to me even when I was a backrunner in WTCC in an old car. He’s already helping me a lot and it’s a wonderful chance for me to learn from one of the biggest touring car legends. It means a lot to me and hopefully it will help me to continue my learning curve that we started a couple of years ago,” said Nagy.

“My goal is to win at least one race but motorsport is not easy and for sure we’ll have to be careful in the beginning to get to know the car, the tyre and some of the race tracks. I want to have the feeling we have done everything possible.”

The Zengo entry brings the so far confirmed WTCR grid up to 17 cars ahead of the season start at Pau-Ville next weekend.
