In a surprise last-minute move, reigning World Champion Rob Huff has joined the ALL-LINKL.COM Münnich Motorsport for the 2013 WTCC season. The Briton will defend his title at the wheel of one of the German squad’s three SEAT León WTCC cars, joining 2012 GT1 World Champion Marc Basseng and team principal René Münnich. Huff replaces Markus Winkelhock who was originally announced as part of the line-up.

"Rob's arrival is a big boost for our ambitions. We want to be at the front of the field right from the beginning, aiming for podium results and race wins. Our goal is a top-three placing in the Drivers' Championship", Münnich said.

For Huff, this means going back to his racing roots, as he clinched the British SEAT Cup title in 2003 before becoming a race winner in the British Touring Car Championship at the wheel of a SEAT León.

"It will be quite special to compete in the WTCC with the León and a team that carries the highest
amount of professionalism. I'm delighted to join René and Marc, this is an exciting newly-formed project, but the team have a huge reputation having previously won the FIA GT1 World Championship in 2012. I'm very thankful for the opportunity that I have been given and look forward to building on this relationship", said Huff who is having his first test with the team today and tomorrow at Slovakia Ring.
