Teen ETCC star switches focus to WTCC

ETCC champion Fernando Monje has announced his intention to switch his full attention to WTCC events.


Monje accomplished his mission to clinch the FIA European Touring Car Cup by winning both the final races last weekend at Imola at the wheel of a SUNRED Engineering SEAT Leon TDi car.

Now the 19-year old Spaniard will focus on the WTCC.

After making his maiden appearance at Valencia, also in a SEAT León TDi, he will take part in the remaining overseas events driving a SEAT Leon WTCC powered by the new 1.6-litre turbo engine.

He said: “I am fully focused on the WTCC, I love the cars and the championship.

" I will have to fight hard because there are fantastic drivers and I don't know the tracks.

"For this year my aim is to learn as much as I can to be ready for 2013."
