Igor Stefanovski is “doing everything in his power” to chase more success in the FIA European Touring Car Cup in 2017.

Stefanovski rounded out an impressive debut ETCC campaign by winning the first of two races at the season-closing ETCC Race of Imola last October.

However, the double FIA European Hillclimb champion from Macedonia is still trying to finalise the budget needed to secure his place on the ETCC grid.

“We are doing everything in our power to achieve the goal of another ETCC season,” said Stefanovski, who hopes to reveal more details about his plans during the coming weeks.

Mladen Lalušić added to his FIA European Touring Car Cup scoring tally with sixth place in Race 1 at ETCC Race of Vila Real last month.

Zsolt Dávid Szabó’s impressive performances in the FIA European Touring Car Cup have been rewarded with a step up to the FIA World Touring Car Championship with Zengő Motorsport for WTCC Race of Argentina later this month.

Petr Fulín has praised FIA European Touring Car Cup rival Norbert Nagy for giving him a clean fight at ETCC Race of Vila Real last week.

José Rodrigues described the FIA European Touring Car Cup as a “great championship” after his one-off appearance in the series at his home event, ETCC Race of Vila Real.

Andreas Pfister left Portugal for his native Germany with more FIA European Touring Car Cup points in the bag following an encouraging performance in Vila Real last weekend.
