Campos confirms drivers

Campos Racing has confirmed the signings of Fernando Monje and Hugo Valente for the 2013 WTCC

Campos Racing has announced its two drivers for the 2013 FIA World Touring Car Championship.

Campos, who last week revealed that it has joined forces with SUNRED Engineering, will field cars for Spaniard Fernando Monje and Frenchman Hugo Valente.

Monje wrapped up last year's FIA European Touring Car Cup winning six out of the eight races. The 20-year-old also competed for six rounds in last year's WTCC with SUNRED, scoring a best result of two tenth places.

Valente takes the second seat. He raced in the French SEAT Leon Supercopa series in 2012 and led the standings until the last event. He also competed in the WTCC too, competing in Shanghai, again with SUNRED, but was hindered by a penalty. According to Touring Car Times, Valente will have to wait until the Hungarian round of the Championship in May before he can race for Campos.

The team will also field Ukraine's Igor Skuz and Austrian racer Wolfgang Treml in this year's ETCC.
