SEAT SPORT OFFICIALLY UNVEILS NEW DRIVER
Tiago Monteiro and his journey into the WTCC

Tiago Monteiro was official unveiled as an official SEAT Sport driver in Lisbon, Portugal, today, prior to his making his FIA World Touring Car Championship debut for the team at Rounds 3 and 4 of the 2007 series at Zandvoort in The Netherlands on May 5/6.

As team-mate to Gabriele Tarquini, Yvan Muller, Jordi Gene and Michel Jourdain Jr in the official SEAT Sport team, the 30-year old Portuguese driver -- who has 37 Formula 1 Grands Prix starts and a career-best 3rd place finish at the 2005 USA GP to his name -- made his racing debut just 10 years ago in saloon car racing. However, the WTCC is a long way from that Porsche Carrera Cup event, but Tiago has come a long way too, and now he's ready for his new challenge.
