FIVE FACTS:

Forever the winner: Having come agonisingly close to title glory in the two previous seasons, Fulín won the FIA European Touring Car Cup in 2017 during a final-round decider at Most in his native Czech Republic. In doing so, Fulín became the last driver to win the ETCC title.

Fantastic fifth: Having made selected World Touring Car Championship appearances in the past alongside his prolific stint in the ETCC, Fulín has competed in TCR International and made a one-off WTCR outing at the Slovakia Ring in 2018, impressing by finishing fifth in the third race of the weekend at the wheel of the previous-generation CUPRA TCR.

Making it possible: Fulín is competing at WTCR Race of Slovakia with the support of VEXTA DOMY, one of the largest suppliers of wooden constructions in Czech Republic, plus his country’s ASN, the Automobile Club of Czech Republic (ACCR).

Keeping busy, keeping fit: When he’s not competing in the WTCR, Fulín operates the FULLINRACE Academy, a driver coaching service. He also takes part in long-distance races in his homeland and sticks to a rigorous diet and fitness regime.

Did you know? Fulín’s son, Petr Jr, also races and joined his father on the grid for the FIA European Touring Car Cup finale in 2017.
