Comtoyou Racing will run four cars in the new FIA WTCR series, with the team confirming Frédéric Vervisch and Nathanaël Berthon will be its third and fourth drivers.

The Belgian outfit had previously announced Denis Dupont and Aurélien Panis in a provisional two-car effort, and has subsequently become the first team to expand to a larger presence on this year’s grid.

Vervisch previously contested eight rounds of the TCR International Series with Comtoyou to help teammate Stefano Comini’s ultimately unsuccessful bid to win a hat-trick of Drivers’ Championship titles.

Former GP2 Series driver Berthon represented the outfit in the Andros Trophy ice-racing series and will make his touring car debut this year.
