Luca Engstler, son of experienced touring car racer Franz Engstler, has been confirmed at Team Engstler in the 2017 ADAC TCR Germany series.
The 16-year-old has completed six days of testing at Adria in Italy in the Volkswagen Golf TCR that he is going to drive next season.
â€œThe two cars completed nearly 3,600 km without any technical problems, and Luca surprised us by being the fastest, which convinced me even further to keep on supporting him,â€� said Franz Engstler.
â€�We had already given him the opportunity to move up to Formula 4 after three years in karting. In the two latest seasons of single-seaters we have seen that he has grown up well, becoming good enough to test a touring car. In Adria he was absolutely stunning!â€�
Luca Engstler finished 28th in the 2016 ADAC Formula 4 this season for Team Engstler, making his single seater debut the year before.
