Borkovic: a now-or-never opportunity
A few weeks after announcing his plans to race in the 2014 FIA World Touring Car Championship with Campos Racing, Dusan Borkovic revealed he will drive one of the team’s new RML-built Chevrolet Cruze cars.
The original plan was to compete in the WTCC Yokohama Trophy at the wheel of a 2013 SEAT León. However, recently the team offered me to drive a Chevrolet in the championship’s elite class, competing against the top touring car aces. This was a now-or-never opportunity and I didn’t have to think too much before I agreed with the proposal. – Borkovic said.
The 29-year old Borkovic will be the first Serbian driver to race in WTCC. After winning five national titles, in 2012 he became FIA European Hillclimbing champion for Category 1. He spent the 2013 season in the FIA European Car Cup, competing in the S2000 class at the wheel of a SEAT León first and a Chevrolet Cruze later. He won one race at the Salzburgring and was classified third in the final standings.
