The Liqui Moly team Engstler outfit has confirmed it will remain on the grid in this year’s FIA World Touring Car Championship.
The outfit will field a pair of BMW 320TC cars in the series’ less competitive TC2 class, which was set up to allow for entries conforming to the 2013 regulations. They will compete against a pair of SEAT Leóns being entered by the Campos Racing outfit, with more entries expected to be confirmed over the season.
Team principal Franz Engstler will drive one of the outfit’s cars, while the identity of his teammate will be announced in the coming days. His teammate for the past two seasons has been Hong Kong racer Charles Ng.
Engstler has raced in the WTCC since 2007, and in over 140 races, he has twice finished runner-up in the Independent Trophy standings, as well as claimed a single outright win at Oschersleben in 2011.
