Tiago Monteiro accepts the invitation from SEAT Sport to try a WTCC car

While his management team is focused on securing his future in Formula 1 the Portuguese driver accepted this nice invitation from Seat Sport and will try, on Tuesday, a Seat Leon from the WTCC championship at the Spanish track of Valencia.

The idea came from Paulo Ferreira (co-promoter of the WTCC race of Oporto) and Jaime Puig (Seat Sport Team Manager).

"As a professional driver, I am always interested in trying new cars and different factory teams competing in world championships. It's a new experience for me, but I heard a lot of good things about the car and championship, and because I still don't have any contractual restrictions I thought it was a good timing."

Paulo Ferreira is the co-promoter of the Portuguese event of the championship and is obviously very interested in possibly having a Portuguese driver in the world championship.
