Norbert Michelisz

2019 WTCR Champion

I am so happy to be able to say I am the WTCR World Touring Car Cup winner. It is such a fantastic feeling after such a tense day. From the start of the weekend the i30 N TCR was really fast, but the mixed conditions for the races still made it very challenging. Though it is a drivers’ title it has been won with the help of the whole team. Without their work, and the performance of the car it would not be possible. Gabriele Tar-quini was one of the first people to congratulate me once we crossed the line. To follow him as the WTCR winner is amaz-ing for me and especially great for the whole BRC Racing Team and the Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing depart-ment who are responsible for building the i30 N TCR.

I could not be more proud to say we have a second BRC Racing Team-run Hyundai i30 N TCR driver as WTCR –FIA World Touring Car Cup winner in two years of racing. Norbert has obviously been great, and fully deserves to be on top of the podium after an incredibly close season. To clinch the title he needed a strong weekend in Malaysia under pressure, and he did exactly what was asked of him. For him to have won at five different circuits, as radically different as the Nordschleife and Vila Real, shows how versatile the i30 N TCR package is. It also shows the car can cope with anything the WTCR season –or any other TCR series –can come up with, and finish the year with a superb result.
