Oriola to race in TCR with Craft-Bamboo

World Touring Car Championship race winner will drive for the Craft-Bamboo team in the new TCR International Series.

The Spanish driver is the second of three drivers joining the team for the new-for-2015 championship.

Oriola joins Russian Sergey Afanasyev in the team's line-up.

"It has been a hard road filled with sacrifices, but it's worth it," said Oriola, who competed in just one round of the WTCC last year.

"I now have the reward of becoming a professional driver and I will be participating in a new competition that will become a milestone in international touring car racing.

"The feelings are very positive with Craft-Bamboo Racing and we have already begun work to prepare for the new TCR International Series that will surely become the championship of reference."

The TCR International Series kicks off during the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend on March 29th.
