LIQUI MOLY Team Engstler changes to Honda
Transition in automobile racing: With its Engstler racing team, the German motor oil and additive manufacturer become one of the main Honda customer team in the WTCR and TCR Germany.
In the new season, LIQUI MOLY Team Engstler will be driving Honda Civic Type R TCR vehicles in the WTCR and TCR Germany. Peter Baumann, Marketing Director at the lubricant specialist, is optimistic about the newly agreed cooperation: “We are very excited to be part of the global Honda motorsports program starting next season. And we are confident that we can live our corporate values very well with Honda. The motorsport expertise of the team led by Franz Engstler, our passion and the joy of working together will harmonize very well and lead to the desired success in sport as well as for the Honda and LIQUI MOLY brands.”
Franz Engstler, team owner of LIQUI MOLY Team Engstler: “We are extremely proud and will commit everything we have to adding more chapters to Honda’s great and successful motorsports history.”
Honda Racing drivers Tiago Monteiro (Portugal) and Attila Tassi (Hungary) will drive in the WTCR wearing the LIQUI MOLY Team Engstler outfit. The driver line-up for TCR Germany will be announced at a later date.
The Ulm-based company relies on its core competence for all its racing activities on two and four wheels. Günter Hiermaier, sole managing director of Liqui Moly GmbH from March 2022: “Motorsport and our brand belong together. Our products stand for the highest quality and reliability, which we prove to an international audience every weekend in motorsport. Our business partners in particular benefit from our international brand presence and our technical expertise. That’s why we dearly hope to be able to welcome our partners to the events again in person soon.”
