Rob Huff will do all he can to win the FIA World Touring Car Championship for a second time after re-signing with ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport for 2017.

Huff mounted the defence of his first WTCC crown with the German team in 2013 and returns to the squad to pilot its recently-acquired Citroën C-Elysée WTCC.

He said: “Obviously when René Münnich approached me with the idea of a Huff-Citroën/Münnich Motorsport attack on the world driver championship for 2017 it was an opportunity that I simply could not pass on. It is a year when it’s quite possible for a private team to be WTCC champions, and that is our number one goal.”

Briton Huff took two wins for ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport in 2013 and finished fourth in the standings behind the wheel of a SEAT León WTCC.

“I’m overjoyed to be re-joining my very good friends at Münnich Motorsport for the 2017 WTCC,” continued the 37-year-old, the championship’s most experienced competitor. “Having had a very successful year with the team in 2013, we are excited to come back together in a much stronger position, with more experience and of course with the ultra-competitive Citroën package.”

ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport will confirm Huff’s pre-season testing schedule in the coming weeks. The new season begins at WTCC Race of Morocco in Marrakech from 7-9 April, an event Huff has won once previously.
