Engstler and NG to team together
For the Liqui Moly Team Engstler
Germany-based Liqui Moly Team Engstler announced Franz Engstler and Charles Kaki Ng as their drivers for the 2012 WTCC, at the wheel of two BMW 320 TC cars.
On their attempt to defend the Yokohama Drivers’ and Teams’ Trophies won in 2011, the German outfit mix Engstler’s experience with Ng’s youthful enthusiasm.
The 50-year-old Engstler claimed his and the team’s first WTCC victory last year at Oschersleben, while Ng (27 year old) joined the squad for the last three events of the season and managed to score his first championship point at Shanghai.
“It was a very promising start for him,” said team manager Kurt Treml, adding: “Charles has moved to live in our town, works together with the mechanics and trains on the simulator. He is quickly integrating himself with the team.”
