WTCR Rob Huff was the latest addition to the full-season entry list

Eurosport Events, promoter of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup has confirmed a 22-car full-season entry list than includes drivers representing five customer racing brands – Audi, CUPRA, Honda, Hyundai and Lynk & Co – and twelve nationalities.
Six Touring Car World champions make the field: Gabriele Tarquini (2009 WTCC and 2018 WTCR), Norbert Michelisz (2019 WTCR), Yann Ehrlacher (2020 WTCR), Yvan Muller (2008, 2010, 2011, 2013 WTCC), Rob Huff (2012 WTCC) and Thed Björk (2017 WTCC).

They are joined by the 2017 TCR International Series champion Jean-Karl Vernay and the 2018 TCR Europe champion Mikel Azcona.
The latest addition to this impressive line-up was Huff, who returns to the World Cup after a one-year break in which he won the TCR Scandinavia title. The Briton will drive a CUPRA Leon Competición car for Zengő Motorsport.


“I’m really happy to be back in WTCR, and with the Zengő Motorsport team. I know the new CUPRA Leon is a competitive car. It shares some of the underpinnings with the new Volkswagen I was helping to develop two years ago, and I also spent most of last year fighting against it in Sweden, so it’ll be great to be on the other side and behind the wheel of one this year instead. We know it’ll be a tough season. Our aim will be to do our best and hope to be there with a chance at the end of the season. The golden ticket for me at the end is a chance to build on my tally in Macau, with a car we know will be able to take us to victory and add to my ten wins at the toughest track in the world,” said Huff.
The season will kick off at the Nürburgring, on June 3/5.
