It’s Vernay who possesses the most recent touring car title, having scooped the WTCR Trophy for Independent drivers last year on his way to finishing third in the overall points behind the wheel of Mulsanne Racing’s Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR. This year he combines his PURE ETCR programme with another in WTCR – also with Hyundai.

Jean-Karl Vernay won the first racing championship he entered – Formula France Campus – and simply hasn’t stopped racking up the trophies since. After winning the US-based Indy Lights Series, he switched to sportscars and won the Porsche Carrera Cup France as well as scoring a Le Mans 24 Hours class podium. But a switch to touring cars provided even more success as titles in TCR International and TCR Benelux, plus stints as a factory driver for both Audi and now Hyundai prove.
