Norbert Michelisz will graduate to the World Touring Car Championship for the 2010 season following his title winning campaign in the SEAT Leon Eurocup.

Michelisz took five wins en-route to the Eurocup title last year and produced an impressive performance in his second outing in the WTCC at Brands Hatch - where he made it through to the second phase of qualifying.

That outing, thanks to his performance in the Eurocup, was the Hungarian drivers second appearance in the WTCC after a similar one-off outing in Japan in 2008.
