Engstler adds third car for two events

Liqui Moly Team Engstler has announced that it will enter a third car into the World Touring Car Championship events at both Brands Hatch and Oschersleben.

Team boss Franz Engstler and regular team-mate Kristian Poulsen will be joined by Philip Geipel for the two events, with the 22-year-old making his return to the series for the first time since 2007.

"He is the first young driver we will give a chance to learn and grow in the WTCC as part of our Liqui Moly Junior Team project," team manger Kurt Treml said.


Giepel, the reigning champion in the ADAC Procar Series, has previously contested the event at Brno in both 2006 and 2007 at the wheel of a Toyota Corolla

Another car on the grid is a good thing, considering the current economic climate, and also it makes a nice change that a team like Engstler and their sponsors are able to help develop talent where the driver doesn't have to bring huge amount of sponsorship with them - when you consider the amount of sponsor money people like Porteiro, D'Aste, Hernandez etc have had to bring with them to get their drives.
