  • More success in the team championship: Titles number 11 and 12 for the racing Golf GTI

Luca Engstler (D) is the 2018 TCR Middle East champion. The 17-year-old driver from Liqui Moly Team Engstler won the first TCR title of the year for Volkswagen in the 350-hp Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR at the final round of the touring car championship in Bahrain (BRN) this weekend. This makes Engstler the youngest champion to date across all the TCR series. Team Engstler also won the team championship, which meant titles number eleven and twelve for the production-based racing Golf from Wolfsburg, since the car made its debut on racetracks around the world in 2016.
