Fans heading to the upcoming round of the World Touring Car Championship around the Czech circuit of Brno will now have someone to cheer on after SUNRED SEAT announced they would be running local driver Michal Matejovský.
Pairing up with Tom Coronel in the satellite SEAT outfit, Matejovský will make his WTCC debut at the wheel of a petrol-powered Leon TFSI.
The 23-year-old from Hradec Králové does have some touring car experience having previously competed in the European Touring Car Cup in an Alfa Romeo 156, although he has raced in the Skoda Octavia Cup and BMW 1 Challenge too.
Racing under the SUNRED-BRT banner, Matejovský currently competes for the same team in the SEAT Leon Eurocup. He is yet to score.
