“It is a real pleasure to be able to return to the FIA ​​WTCR with the support and help of Audi Sport, DHL and Audi France,” said Berthon.

“I know the car and a large amount of tracks, it will not take me much time to be back in the game. Meeting again the guys from Comtoyou Racing makes me really happy, everything is there to win.”

The 30-year-old will make his WTCR return at the Salzburging on 12 – 13 September when the revised, six-event season, gets underway.

Berthon will compete before then in the 24 Hours of Portimão in an Audi RS3 LMS TCR alongside Coronel and Nicolas Baert, the son of Comtoyou Racing team owner Jean-Michel Baert.
