World Touring Car independent Mehdi Bennani has joined Wiechers-Sport for the full 2010 season. The Moroccan driver, who made his series debut on home soil in a SEAT Leon at the Marrakech street race last season, will drive one of the team's BMW 3 Series.
"We are very pleased that Mehdi has joined us," said Wiechers team manager Dominik Greiner. "From his very first laps in the WTCC he proved to be very competitive. Our common aim is a place on the podium in the Independents' Trophy."
Aly Horma, president of the Marrakech race, added: "As the only Moroccan driver in a world championship, Mehdi will be carrying high the colors of Morocco on the world's most prestigious circuits."
