German international Max Kruse, who plays his club football for Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, is looking to make his mark on the motor racing scene. At the start of the year, the 29-year-old formed the Max Kruse Racing team, which will run a Volkswagen Golf GTI in the ADAC TCR Germany series. The man behind the wheel for the team at this year's seven race weekends will be Volkswagen driver Benjamin Leuchter (30), who just a few days ago tasted success in a Golf GTI TCR at the 24 Hours of Dubai. Leuchter and Kruse visited Hannover (D) to receive the first 350-hp Golf GTI TCR to come off the assembly line in 2018.
