Zengo enters second WTCC BMW for Gabor Weber

Zengo Motorsport will field two cars in this year's World Touring Car Championship

Zengo enters second WTCC BMW for Gabor Weber

The Hungary-based squad will enter a second BMW 320 TC for 39-year-old Gabor Weber, who will partner Norbert Michelisz at the team this year.

Weber succeeded Michelisz in winning the SEAT Leon Eurocup in 2010.

"We've been working on the project for months and finally we are there," said Weber. "I'm very happy to be back with Zengo Motorsport, and to team with Norbert.

"He was my teammate in the SEAT Cup and we share the same fighting spirit. Together we can be even stronger to challenge for the Yokohama Trophy."

Michelisz finished in ninth position in last year's championship with the team, having scored 88 points.

Michelisz added: "I can't wait the 2012 season to start. Monza is going to be quite interesting, but I hope we can be at least as competitive as we were there last year.

"I know that this season will be a huge challenge and with Gabor Weber as my team-mate, I think it's possible to fight more frequently for top positions as he is a very competitive driver, and we know each other very well."
