Their cars were owned by the Fugel family too, I believe. They were placed on the market recently. Presumably to cover the new NSX GT3 in the stable.

Baert confirmed for the family team- basically it was obvious after Magnus stayed in WTCR.
https://www.touringcartimes.com/2021...mtoyou-racing/

Now in the case of the two Halders, they said WTCR is their aim for this year, which seems more and more unlikely by this information.

For me the biggest question is Bennani, with 3 Comtoyou cars already confirmed. And also if Target want to stay in TCR Europe too with the switch of the Backmans to WTCR and confirming Baldan's TCR Italy/part WTCR program.

The Loeb team has two car free for now... so we could easily see two more good drivers there

What do you mean by this? Do they, besides Langeveld en Jelmini, enter two more cars?

I think you are right, there was at least a connection between Fugel and Halder.

It seems like Langeveld spoilered his second team mate before the announcement
If you look at his Instagram post, you see on the Elantra near his car the colours and name of Bennani.

So one name sorted for SLR

And Serbiaring wrote that Taoufik is tipped for the 4th car.

I think it was easily predictable given the fact that Comyotou has empty slots for other drivers

It's a great deal for the Maroccan drivers and the new Elantra seems stunning! And should be also very fast ...

So Gavrilov will race in TCR Europe this season. Well, the WTCR would have been a huge jump for him and a small team. And choosing the Audi over the i30 is probably better current BoP wise.

One of the most interesting news from the last weeks.

Will Zeng? have 5 Cupras, one running in TCR Europe for Dani? Or is this one of the four cars entered for WTCR, doing the TCR Eu. season opener as a test too? Or he will be their 4th WTCR driver too? My Hungarian sources were really silent about this, and really surprised us as the split between Zeng? and Nagy wasn't in the best mood.

https://www.touringcartimes.com/2021...iaring-opener/

So what questions do we have have before the season?

1. Can Briché and his team collect the needed funding?
2. Will John Filippi run in other series beside his eTCR program with Hyundai?
3. Are BRC out of TCR Eu? Probably yes, but staying on the Italian Hyundai front, with the expanded TCR Italy program and Backmans stepping up to WTCR will Target stay? Things are quiet around Sapag too.

Sorry, my reply was posted twice.

But as I'm editing it, on the Hungarian side of things, we don't really now too much about Szabó Zsolt, who was planning a bigger program in TCR Europe last year, but Covid messed up his plans. But he has quite ok backing and we can never count him out as a possible entrant, even for the 4th Zeng? seat in WTCR.

The Halders have just been confirmed in TCR Spain. (of course they could still run TCR Europe as well).
