After competing the first three raceweekends in Superleague Formula, the raceseries which combines racing and soccer, for the Atletico de Madrid team 26 year old Ho-Pin Tung will transfer to the Superleague Formula racing team of Galatasaray from Turkey.

The Dutch Chinese driver scored his best result in Superleague Formula during the race at Zolder on the 19th of july when he finished in second place. Atletico is currently 9th in overall standings while Tung's new club is in 15th position.

"All parties involved are satisfied with the transfer. The clubs, the Superleague series and both drivers. We made a good deal and it's a challenge I look forward to to try and score for this team. Despite the results it was clear the Atletico Madrid team wanted a Spanish driver in the car. My new team, the Galatasaray team wants to end the season with some good results which I hope I can provide," says Ho-Pin Tung.

The replacement of Tung at Atletico de Madrid is Spanish driver Maria de Villota, former F1 driver Emilio de Villota's daughter. She will compete in the final three races of the season and will be teh first female driver in Superleague Formula's history.

Next round in the Superleague Formula is on 5th and 6th September at the Estoril racetrack in Portugal.
