Patrick Sing has confirmed he will return to the ADAC TCR Germany series for a second successive season, once again racing a Hyundai i30 N TCR for his self-run team.
Sing, 29, made his début in the 2019 season in a one-off entry, before returning two years’ later in 2021 to take on an almost complete season.
Last year Sing competed in six of the seven events, securing a best finish of fourth, on two occasions (at the Red Bull Ring and the Sachsenring) to end the year 11th overall in the drivers’ championship.
“Last season I was only there on six out of seven weekends,” said Sing. “My goal was the top ten, but due to the circumstances that I couldn’t always be there, the result was okay.
“My goal in the overall standings is to get into the top ten. I also want to be on the podium at least once.
“Finishing fourth straight away at the Sachsenring, after having never driven or tested there, was definitely the highlight of the season.”
Sing has already got his 2022 preparations underway, having finished on the podium of the TCR class at the Abu Dhabi Six Hours earlier in the year with AC Motorsport.
“The Hockenheimring isn’t far away, it’s sort of a home race for us that I’m particularly looking forward to,” added Sing.
“I drove on the Salzburgring in 2018 as part of the KTM X-Bow series. But that won’t be a big advantage for me because it was a long time ago and everyone is allowed to test on the track.
“Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to the Salzburgring. It’s an interesting track with interesting passages.
“On the race weekends, there are six of us. Two mechanics, a Hyundai engineer, a car salesman, my brother and I travel from race to race. This amount of people is just right for a car.”
