Nikolay Karamyshev joins Campos for two races

Reigning FIA ETCC Super Production class champion Nikolay Karamyshev will race for Campos Racing in the next two rounds of the FIA World Touring Car Championship at Moscow and Porto.

Karamyshev will take over the car driven by French driver Hugo Valente for the next two rounds before Valente returns for the fly-away portion of the season starting in South America in August.

Karamyshev will be the second Russian driver on the grid after Lada’s Mikhail Kozlovskiy as the WTCC heads to Russia for the first time next month.

The 24-year-old is currently competing in the Single-Make Trophy class in this year’s ETCC with a car run with support of Joan Orus’s Campos/Tuenti Racing team operation.
