Boutsen Ginion Racing driver Tiago Monteiro will miss the start of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup as his recovery from injury continues.
The Portuguese driver has not raced since a high-speed testing incident last September. Despite a strong recovery, he has not yet reached a suitable condition to return to racing. No timeframe has been set for this return.
Boutsen Ginion Racing Test and Reserve Driver Benjamin Lessennes – who won the 2017 TCR Benelux title with the team – will deputise for Tiago; starting with this week’s official pre-season test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain.
