Team-mate ready to help WTCC returnee De Souza
Felipe De Souza will be able to count on the support of RC Motorsport team-mates Yann Ehrlacher and Kevin Gleason when he makes his return to the FIA World Touring Car Championship this week.
De Souza, whose last WTCC appearance pre-dated the TC1 World Touring Car era, will drive his RC entry for the first time at the Ningbo International Speedpark, the new venue of WTCC Race of China, from 13-15 October.
Erhlacher, winner last time out in Argentina (pictured), said: “It’ll be nice to meet a driver from another continent and having him with us. I already know him by name from his previous WTCC appearances. There is some specification with the aero, braking and in the dusty air in the traffic which are quite important, that we’ll advise him on.”
