Same here for WRT or even BRC. There’s no going back, and there’s no hiding the information. So let everyone have it.

Given WRT moves to DTM in 2019, will they remain in WTCR?

Are you sure? I thought that there was a maximum of 4 cars per manufacturer in 2019...might be wrong

Now that you're asking I was wondering that too...

That quote I posted was from the Autosport article and now I'm discovering that the official press of Audi sport customer is different

Reading the official press, I understand that only the teams are confirmed! Altough we know that Shedden and Vervish are locked for 2019 with also Vernay likely to stay with them. Maybe Autosport know something more about this story, but the strange fact is that Touringcartimes didn't mention this news......

Could be a case of misunderstanding?

Farfus will continue with BMW in the WEC. So no WTCR for the 2019 and I fear it's the same for Nicky Catsburg

Perhaps... But don't forget BMW allowed Nicky to race for Lada in WTCC while he was their works driver.

Farfus will race also with the BMW customer GT3 teams. Both him and Catsuburg seems to have a great commitment with the german marque. Anyway there are a lot of good drivers out there

Catsburg was doing 2017 ~ 20 GT3 Races + WTCC for Volvo

They can do the WEC Races next Year + GT3 Races + WTCR

I don't think BMW will allow them to race in WTCR in a Hyundai to be honest, but I could be wrong.

Farfus ha always had an official BMW status, as a driver. Catsburg maybe had a contractual status different with BMW in the past, so he could race also for other teams. Now he seems to have step up his status as official BMW driver.

If they are under contract directly with BMW I find difficult that they can race with other marques. But as I was saying, I could be wrong. It depends from their contracts with BMW...
