Monteiro re-signs with SUNRED SEAT
Tiago Monteiro has joined Gabriele Tarquini into committing to a second season with the privateer SUNRED team's SEAT squad in the World Touring Car Championship. Monteiro was a factory SEAT driver for the three seasons before the company ended its works involvement in the WTCC, and like Tarquini, he then stayed on when SUNRED took on the cars on an independent basis last year. The team had hoped to hang on to both Monteiro and Tarquini, and the Portuguese ex-Formula 1 driver has now joined his Italian colleague in agreeing to stay with SUNRED.
