Filippi to continue with Campos Chevrolet

French youngster John Filippi will continue in the World Touring Car Championship with Campos Racing this season driving a Chevrolet Cruze.
John Filippi has confirmed he will embark on a third season in the World Touring Car Championship this year after penning a renewal with Campos Racing.

The youngster made his WTCC debut in 2014 driving a Campos Racing-prepared SEAT Leon in the second-tier TC2 class, before stepping up to the TC1 class with the Spanish outfit driving a Chevrolet Cruze.

After a learning year that yielded three top ten finishes, the 20 year-old heads into the 2016 season – once more driving the first confirmed Chevrolet on the grid – for a shot at the Independents' Trophy.

“My objective is to establish my legitimacy in this championship with my last performances in mind,” said Filippi, who will also receive mentoring from four-time world champion Yvan Muller. “I am very happy to continue working with the engineers and mechanics from the Campos team. I am very confident for this season and I hope that I can get some great results.”

Filippi is set to be joined by a new team-mate at Campos after Hugo Valente was confirmed with the LADA team last week.
