Pepe Oriola has used a gap in his World Touring Car Championship campaign to give a circuit lesson to rally ace Sepp Wiegand.

The pair shared driving duties in a SEAT Leon Eurocup race for the test session at the Alcarr?s circuit in Spain, which was made possible thanks to Manel Huguet - chief engineering with the Tuenti Racing Team running Oriola in the WTCC this season.

Huguet is also responsible for the Skoda Fabia S2000 being used by Wiegand in WRC2 this season.

"Both Pepe and Sepp are young and very competitive drivers, so they were very comfortable working together," he said. "We managed more than 300 kilometres of testing and the results were very good."

Oriola himself said he was pleased to have had the chance to spend a day working with the rally ace.

"It was a pleasure working with Sepp and exchange experiences at the wheel," he said. "The day went very well and managed to reach the goals we had for today."
