Rob Huff rejoins Münnich Motorsport and gets Citroën for 2017 WTCC attack
Rob Huff rejoins ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport for the 2017 World Touring Car Championship season. The 37-year-old Briton will drive the #12 Citroën C-Elysée WTCC in his second season with German team.
Huff spent one year with Münnich Motorsport’s Seat Leon in 2013, joining the team after his championship-winning 2012 season with Chevrolet. Citroen will be Huff’s fifth manufacturer since 2012, as he drove for Lada and Honda factory teams in the meantime.
“I’m overjoyed to be rejoining my very good friends at Münnich Motorsport for the 2017 WTCC. Having had a very successful year with the team in 2013, we are excited to come back together in a much stronger position, with more experience and of course with the ultra-competitive Citroën package. Obviously when René Münnich approached me with the idea of a Huff-Citroën/Münnich Motorsport attack on the world driver championship for 2017 it was an opportunity that I simply could not pass on. It is a year when it’s quite possible for a private team to be WTCC champions, and that is our number one goal,” Rob Huff said.
ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport Team Manager Dominik Greiner added: “We are very much looking forward to the new season. You can clearly feel the motivation from every single person in the team. With the Citroën C-Elysée TC1 we have the most dominant car of the past three seasons. With Rob, we also have a driver with a lot of experience and success in the past. The combination of car, team and driver makes me feel very positive for the new season. It won’t be easy but we will try our best to fight for the world driver title.”
The 2017 season starts at WTCC Race of Morocco in Marrakech from 7-9 April.
