Factory Team Associated driver Keven Hebert is set to make a return to the Yokomo Euro Touring Series when he travels to the Spanish holiday island of Gran Canaria next weekend (March 2-4) to contest round three of the world famous electric touring car championship. Having made his ETS debut in Austria last year where he made the A-Main finishing 9th overall, the Canadian who is a leading figure in the US racing scene will once again join forces with factory Associated team-mate Juho Levanen.
Levanen, who went on to win in Poland last season following Hebert’s debut a round earlier, is looking forward to having Hebert join him and hopes together they can turn around what has been a disappointing start to the 6 round series for the Finn. Finishing fourth overall in last season’s standings, Levanen currently finds himself down in 14th position having failed to make the A-Main at the opening two rounds which were both won by defending champion Ronald Volker.
A new addition to this year’s calendar, Cran Canaria will be the first outdoor race of the 2011/12 season with the leading drivers hoping the move from carpet to asphalt will give them a chance to bring a halt to Volker and Team Yokomo’s early domination of season No.5 of the Euro Touring Series.
