The factory-supported Audi WRT and Comtoyou teams will each continue in the FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) for 2019 with their existing drivers.

The German marque confirmed its continued involvement to Autosport as the series prepares for a seven-way title fight on the streets of Macau.

Audi Sport Lukoil Team WRT have claimed all four victories for the Audi RS 3 LMS model on the international stage this season, with Jean-Karl Vernay taking top spot in Marrakesh, Zandvoort and Wuhan alongside Gordon Shedden’s maiden win at the latter circuit.

That pairing will continue, whilst Frederic Vervisch will remain with Comtoyou alongside privateer entries run by the Belgian outfit in the hands of Nathanael Berthon, Denis Dupont and Aurelien Panis.
