Senna set for Brazilian Stock Car debut
5 December 2013 – Ex-Formula 1 driver Bruno Senna will make his Brazilian Stock Car debut on December 15.
The former HRT, Lotus and Williams man, who concluded his maiden World Endurance Championship (WEC) campaign with two victories in the GTE Pro class and another in the GTE AM division, will partner Valdeno Brito and Popó Bueno at the season-ending Interlagos event.
"This is going to be a landmark in my career as it will represent my first race in a domestic championship," explained Senna. "It is going to be a tough challenge given the level of the drivers and the competitiveness of the series."
He added: "I've been racing in GTE and so a car with a roof is not totally unknown for me. I already know the track, which is good news, but of course I will look for the guys who also raced in Formula 1 to get some tips and ideas..."
As a guest of the series, Senna will be given a three hour test session on the Friday of the event to get to grips with Stock Car machinery.
