Bruno Senna will make his debut in the Brazilian Stock Car Championship in the last round at Interlagos circuit on December 15.

The ex-HRT, Lotus and Williams F1 pilot, who has just finished his inaugural year in the FIA World Endurance Championship season with two victories in the GTE Pro class and another in the GTE AM division, will team up with Valdeno Brito and Pop? Bueno in a GT Team Ra?zen-sponsored car.

"This is going to be a landmark in my career as it will represent my first race in a domestic championship," stated the thirty-year old nephew of Ayrton Senna.

"It is going to be a tough challenge [though] given the level of the drivers and the competitiveness of the series," he added.

As a special guest, Bruno will be given a three hour test session on Friday morning to get used to the car and its 480 BHPs, plus the push to pass device which provides up to 120 BHP extra power.

"I've been racing in GTE and so a car with a roof is not totally unknown for me," he continued. "I already know the track [too], which is a good news, but of course I will look for the guys who also raced in F1 to get some tips and ideas..."

The race will pay a prize of 1 million of reais (around US$ 500.000) to the winner.
