Konstantins Calko to make WTCC debut with Campos

19-year-old Konstantins Calko will become the first Latvian to take part in an FIA World Touring Car Championship race this weekend, driving the #81 SEAT León WTCC which was only yesterday confirmed for Russian driver Nikolay Karamyshev.

Calko is the 2012 Radical Masters Euro Series champion, as well as the 2011 Baltic Touring Car Championship (BaTCC) title winner, driving a BMW for Weis Motorsport.

Campos’s line-up therefore includes French driver Hugo Valente, as well as two WTCC debutees in Hong Kong driver Michael Soong and Latvian Konstantins Calko this weekend.
