Gabor Weber will miss this weekend's WTCC round at Morocco

Zengö Motorsport driver Gábor Wéber will be missing in action at this weekend’s World Touring Car Championship round in Morocco.

The Hungarian racer – who also serves as a commentator for F1 telecasts on Hungarian TV – suffered an engine failure in his BMW 320TC at the previous round at Valencia.

That, coupled with a flare-up of a fracture he suffered in his left hand during the off-season, has ruled him out of action on the streets of Marrakech, leaving team-mate Norbert Michelisz as the outfit’s sole representative on track this weekend.

Wéber is the second driver confirmed to be missing in action this weekend. SUNRED Engineering rookie Fernando Monje will also not make the trip to North Africa, with his team needing to convert his car back to turbodiesel specifications so he can compete at the next round of the FIA European Touring Car Cup, which will be held in two weeks time at Austria’s Salzburgring circuit.
