Andy Priaulx leaves WTCR and Lynk & Co Cyan Racing
15 June 2020
Multiple Touring Car World champion Andy Priaulx announced his decision to give up on his participation in the WTCR with Lynk & Co Cyan Racing.
"It was a tough call, a really heart wrenching decision. But sometimes less is more and I had to make a decision to try and be successful in other ways outside of the car, helping my son Sebastian with his commitments in the US," said Priaulx. "It's not about retirement, but I didn't want to be in a position where I was not being able to fully commit what Cyan Racing is doing. The plan is to keep racing and Sebastian needs a lot of time for me to give his career the opportunity that I had and that my father gave me at the beginning of my career. I am really proud to have secured the first ever Chinese World Title in motorsport with Lynk & Co Cyan Racing and I wish the team all the best. I think they have a really good shot at great results this year again and I hope that we will be back together somehow in the future."
The replacement for Priaulx will be announced in due course.
