DRIVER UPDATE : Asian Touring Car Series : Franz Engstler
German racer Franz Engstler is looking forward to his home WTCC event this weekend at Oschersleben.
Two weeks ago at Donington Park, at the wheel of his BMW 320 TC run by the Liqui Moly team, Engstler claimed his best result ever in WTCC, finishing third in the second race behind the Chevrolet Cruze cars of Yvan Muller and Rob Huff.
This also enabled him to close the gap in the Yokohama Trophy where he currently lies fourth, only ten points behind Norbert Michelisz.
Engstler, who turned 50 last Monday, hopes to have another positive weekend at the Motorsport Arena. "My podium in the second race at Donington showed that our BMW 320 TC is really working well. I am obviously very much up for the races in Oschersleben. Another top result would be the perfect belated birthday present!"
