For Benjamin Leuchter, 2019 will be the biggest challenge he has faced to date – in a racing sense, at least. Leuchter, who everybody just calls “Benny”, has arrived in the top class of international motorsport: WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup. For touring car drivers, it simply doesn’t get any bigger. Seven of the 26 registered drivers have already won titles under the umbrella of the FIA world automobile association. The grid is without a doubt the strongest of all time – from front to back.
The German in the world cup
Benjamin Leuchter is a racer, through and through. This year, the man from Duisburg, about 70 kilometers north of Cologne, will compete with a Golf GTI TCR in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup, the pinnacle of touring car racing. His close connection to Volkswagen has grown over the years. A portrait of a man who is living his childhood dream.
