Italy-based Proteam Racing and Morocco’s motorsport star Mehdi Bennani announced that they will continue racing together in the 2013 FIA World Touring Car Championship.
Team Principal Valmiro Presenzini said: “We are extremely pleased with this renewal of partnership between our team and Mehdi that lasts since three years. Racing in such a top level series as WTCC has made Mehdi grow up considerably. And this was proved by the outstanding results he achieved last year that culminated in his third position at the Hungaroring. We have faith in his abilities and are confident that in 2013 he could fight for the top five places of the Drivers’ Championship.”
Bennani, who was classified tenth in the 2012 WTCC, echoed: “I am very happy to stay with Proteam Racing, and I have to thank all my partners that have placed their trust in me once again. I hope that our partnership will produce great results during the 2013 season. Last year we achieved to make the top-ten in the championship, and now our goal is to improve that result.”
