Gene completes Craft-Bamboo's TCR line-up

Jordi Gene has completed Team Craft-Bamboo's driver line-up for the upcoming TCR International Series.

The Spanish driver, the elder brother of Ferrari and Nissan driver Marc, joins fellow Spaniard Pepe Oriola and Russian Sergey Afanasyev at the team.

Gene, a factory development driver for SEAT since 2003, will drive one of the team's SEAT Leon Cup cars in the new championship.

"I am really looking forward to this new project, and I'm also very motivated to participate in the TCR International Series with the SEAT Leon Cup Racer, especially after having collaborated with SEAT Sport in its development," said Gene.

"The fact that TCR is sharing some races with the F1 calendar will help promote the new series and help to increase awareness.

"I know the SEAT Leon Cup Racer very well and I've done some testing during the pre-season which I also have combined with karting to make sure my reactions and skills are up to the challenge."
