For the first time Campos Racing will run three SEAT cars as Hugo Valente, who missed the last round in Russia, joins Nikolay Karamyshev and Fernando Monje.

Tom Boardman and his Special Tuning Racing SEAT León will rejoin the Championship after skipping the previous events in Austria and Russia and Pepe Oriola will have his first race in the RML-built Chevrolet Cruze run by the Tuenti Racing Team.

Ron Hartvelt, WTCC Project Manager at RML, said: “We are delighted that Tuenti Racing has decided to run one of our Cruze cars for the remainder of the season. Pepe Oriola is a very talented young driver and this gives us a great opportunity to watch his development even more closely for the future.

"We look forward to supporting them in the same way as we do with our other customer teams. The team is very professional and motivated and we are confident that they will run a strong car.”
