Team Engstler to run two Honda Civic Type R cars in WTCR

14 January 2022

Team Engstler is the first of the two teams confirmed by Honda Racing to run the Civic Type R cars in the 2022 WTCR.
Tiago Monteiro and Attila Tassi will compete for Honda’s new customer racing outfit, while Esteban Guerrieri and Nestor Girolami also remain part of the driver line-up for 2022.

Monteiro said: "I'm looking forward to this new challenge. I had the whole of December off to recover after my chest infection, and now I'm starting to push my body's limits again, so I feel really motivated to work with Attila to help get the team's engineers up to speed with the Civic Type R and have a very productive winter testing period."
Tassi said: "I am very proud to be driving for Team Engstler in their first season running the Honda Civic Type R in the WTCR. Tiago and I have built a very special relationship over the past three years, so I'm happy that we are continuing together and hope we can get the best out of each other."

Franz Engstler said: "It is a proud moment for our team to get the chance to work with Honda in WTCR. It feels like there is a good future for this partnership and it is a great opportunity for the team to grow. Our driver line-up is also very strong, we are really motivated for the start of this new project and will be investing our maximum power to get the best results."

Mads Fischer said: "We are really excited to be working with such an established and formidable team. We've been keen to work with them for some time now, so it's great to have a team with their pedigree on board. Their decision to run the Honda Civic Type R in the WTCR again is a show of confidence both in the car - which has won all over the globe, including 20 times in the WTCR, and remains a competitive force heading into its fifth season of competition - and the customer support JAS Motorsport is able to provide."
