Permanent Safety Car driver from Portugal
After the Safety Car fiasco in France, where the Safety Car driver crashed in to the leader Franz Engstler, the World Touring Car Championship organization has appointed a permanent driver for the Safety Car. 32 year old Portuguese Bruno Correia is going to drive the Safety Car for the remainder of the season.
Correia has driven a lot of different racing classes before, such as Portuguese Formula Ford and Spanish Formula Renault.
Correia tested for the WTCC organization at Brno where he successfully performed a number of interventions.
