The 2019 WTCR Supergrid is finally set with 26 full-time entries for the second season of the world’s major touring car competition.

Ten days ago the Swedish team PWR Racing has been announced as a new entry in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup but without announcing who will drive their Cupra TCR machines.  Now, the team reveals names of drivers and completed the WTCR grid for the 2019 season. That would be team’s co-owner Daniel Haglöf and young Spanish driver Mikel Azcona, last year’s TCR Europe Series champion.

“I feel super happy and proud to join PWR and Cupra Racing in the WTCR. It’s going to be an exciting season full of great challenges. I look forward to the hard work in front of me, to be competitive in this tough field full of world champions. Lastly, I want to thank PWR and Cupra Racing for believing in me as a driver,” said the 22-year-old Azcona.

The confirmation of Haglöf and Azcona completes the 2019 WTCR line-up. On the list of 26 drivers, there are several world champions, including defending WTCR champion Gabriele Tarquini.
