Proteam to run second car in Sonoma

Proteam Racing will run their second BMW 320 TC car at the WTCC event in Sonoma this weekend, with Italian racer Felice Tedeschi joining regular Mehdi Bennani in the team.

Tedeschi spent the early stages of his racing career driving single seaters, in the Italian Formula 3 and the FIA Formula 3000 championships.

Later he switched to covered wheels, competing in the Italian Super Touring from 1994 to 1998 at the wheel of Alfa Romeo 155 cars.

In recent years he has made occasional appearances in the Sports Racing World Cup, Porsche Supercup and Superstars.
