The Zengo team has announced it will expand to a two-car operation for the 2012 WTCC season

The Zengõ Motorsport team has announced that it will field an expanded line-up in its second season of World Touring Car Championship competition as a BMW runner, with the team announcing that it has re-signed Norbert Michelisz for a full season, while fellow Hungarian Gábor Wéber will compete a part-season with the team.

The team has purchased a second BMW 320TC challenger to run Wéber, with the car being the ex-Poulsen Motorsport entry used last year by Independent Trophy championship winner Kristian Poulsen.

Gabor WeberWéber will compete at the opening European rounds, along with the Race of Morocco at Marrakech. He has previously worked with the Zengõ Motorsport squad, winning the 2010 SEAT León Eurocup championship crown. He also works as a Formula 1 commentator for the Hungarian-language RTL Klub channel.

For Michelisz, this year will mark his third full-time season in the World Touring Car Championship, and he will again be hoping to challenge for the Independent Trophy title in 2012 after finishing fourth in the standings last year.

One area that is still up in the air for the team is the identity of their title sponsor. The team parted with audio technology manufacturer Dension during the off-season.
