Campos has selected 20-year-olds Hugo Valente and Fernando Monje for its new assault on the World Touring Car Championship

Campos signs Monje, Valente for 2013 WTCC season

Adrian Campos's team announced last week that it was entering into partnership with long-time works SEAT WTCC team SUNRED to field two Leons in this year's series.

Spaniard Monje (pictured) contested a partial WTCC season with SUNRED last year, claiming two points finishes and also winning the European Touring Car Cup.

Valente switched from single-seaters to saloons for 2012 and emerged with the runner-up spot in France's one-make SEAT series, before getting a one-off WTCC chance with SUNRED in China.

The Frenchman will miss the first three meetings before starting his WTCC season in Hungary in May.
