Petr Fulín to contest Czech WTCR event

Petr Fulín will return to the World Touring Car Cup at Autodrom Most after confirming a wildcard entry into his home event next month.

The three-time FIA European Touring Car Cup, Fulín will race a Cupra Leon Competición run by his own team in the Czech evenr.

Fulín has previously raced as a wildcard in Slovakia in both 2018 and 2020, with a best finish of fifth.

“The first ever FIA WTCR event on my home ground without me on the grid was inconceivable,” he said.

“When I realised that the FIA WTCR calendar was changed due to the COVID situation in Asia and one of the substitute events will take place in Most, I began to work on it immediately to start as a wildcard.

“We have almost no experience with Goodyear tyres and I know the Cupra will get more compensation weight after Hungaroring. On top of that I will get some ballast as a wildcard.

“But I would like to thank all my sponsors and friends so I can participate at the FIA WTCR event in Most. When I leave Most on Sunday evening, I want to be sure that we made everything possible for the success.”
