Pellinen enters FIA ETCC with Seat
Aku Pellinen will make this year his debut in the FIA European Touring Car Cup with Team Niivirta. The 20-year-old Finnish driver will be competing in the Single-Make Trophy at the wheel of a Seat León Supercopa car.
Pellinen, who won the 2012 Trofeo Abarth 500 Europa and the 2010 Finnish V1600 Championship should also take part to the Ibiza Cupra Cup Italy.
I am really looking forward to my first ETCC season. I think this is one of the best options to develop my career, because the series is part of the WTCC events that attract a lot of interest from the public and media. I will have to cope with a new car and new tracks, so it will be a learning season for me, but I want to push from the very beginning. – Pellinen said.
