Brandon Kraus, the winner of the 2011 United States Touring Car Championship, is currently in negotiations with Proteam Racing as he wishes to take part in the WTCC American event at Sonoma in September.
It was at the Sonoma circuit that Kraus secured the 2011 USTCC title and the Californian driver is looking forward to the WTCC visiting his home track for the first time.
Earlier this year, Kraus visited the WTCC opening event at Monza and on that occasion he had the opportunity to drive one of Proteam’s BMW
320 TC cars.
The test was part of an agreement between championship promoters Marcello Lotti (WTCC) and Ali Arsham (USTCC).
“It was really good out there. The WTCC cars are really something! I’m talking to a few sponsors and see if I can get a ride at Sonoma. I’m addicted!” Kraus said.
