The Engstler Hyundai N LIQUI MOLY Racing Team is also competing as a Hyundai works team. Its two drivers Luca Engstler and Nick Catsburg once again take to the wheel of their Hyundai i30 N TCR. The vehicles' engines are lubricated with LIQUI MOLY Synthoil Race Tech GT1 10W-60 which contributes to the vehicles being so successful. This success has now become a burden for drivers in the truest sense of the word.
Because the Hyundai i30 N TCR cars were so fast in the last WTCR season, the regulations are now imposing restrictions. These restrictions are intended to prevent technically superior vehicles from dominating the competition. As a result of this "balance of performance" rule, all Hyundais are forced to carry extra weight around the racetrack. Extra kilos that will make a difference: At the season launch two weeks ago, the two drivers achieved a mid-table finish together with the other Hyundai drivers. Luca Engstler and Nick Catsburg will try to compete for the win at Nürburgring this weekend despite the extra weight.
