Cyan Racing announces contract extension with world touring car winner Santiago Urrutia


Cyan Racing has extended its contract and cooperation with multiple world touring car race winner Santiago Urrutia beyond 2023.

“’Santi’ is one of the fastest touring car drivers in the world and a valued team member who has performed strongly since day one with the team. Our decision to extend our contract with him was easy to take and we look forward to continuing working together towards more success on track,” said Fredrik Wahlén, team manager of Cyan Racing.

The extension was announced during the TCR World Tour home race of Santiago Urrutia at Autódromo Victor Borrat Fabini in Uruguay in front of a massive crowd.

“I’m very happy and thankful to renew my contract with Cyan Racing, the team that has given me the opportunity to become a professional racing driver – something that I will never forget. I feel that I am a part of the Cyan Racing family, we have together won touring car world titles and I couldn’t be happier than where I am. I want to extend a big thank you to everyone in the team who has put their trust in me, and I look forward to more successful seasons together,” said Santiago Urrutia.

The Uruguayan talent joined Cyan Racing in 2020 and has since then scored a total of six wins and 15 podium finishes for the team in world touring cars.
