Zanardi and Porteiro with BMW Team Italy-Spain in 2008 too

Alessandro Zanardi and Felix Porteiro will defend BMW Team Italy-Spain colours in the 2008 season of the WTCC. For the Italian driver this will be the fifth consecutive season with the Team, with which he will aim at new successes after the historical triumphs of Oschersleben and Istanbul.

For Felix Porteiro, winner at Brno and protagonist in several occasion in his WTCC debut season, the 2008 will be the chance to express his full potential after an apprenticeship season.

Roberto Ravaglia (Team Manager): "The confirmation of both drivers will set the basis for a high level 2008 for the BMW Team Italy-Spain. The WTCC is a very difficult championship and Porteiro proved since the beginning that he has got what it takes to emerge. The experience gathered this year will be useful for him in the next season.

"Zanardi had an unlucky season whereby some episodes often forced him to harvest results under his potential. This will be a further motivation to face the 2008 well determined to write new pages on his unique career."

Umberto Grano (Project Manager): "Zanardi and Porteiro's value made easy the reconfirmation decision. I am confident that the next year will bring several satisfactions to the team both in terms of victories and final classification."
