19-YEAR OLD RUSSIAN JOINS GR ASIA

Timur Sadredinov will join the GR Asia team for this weekend's meeting in Oschersleben. The 19-year old from Moscow will become the youngest driver ever to compete in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.

Sadredinov, who was classified second in last year's FIA European Super Production Cup at Estoril behind fellow countryman Alexander Lvov and is now regarded as one of the most promising prospects for Russian motor sport, is currently competing in the German SEAT Leon Supercopa. Therefore it was the logical move for him taking the wheel of a GR Asia WTCC SEAT Leon alongside the team's regular drivers Tom Coronel and Maurizio Ceresoli.

"I'm very pleased to have him in the team. We are currently negotiating to find an agreement also for the next rounds at Brands Hatch and Monza," GR Asia's team principal Paul Ridgway said.
