Zhuhai joins 2017 TCR Asia Series programme
“We had originally scheduled South Korea to host a round of the TCR Asia Series again, but after careful consideration, taking into account the lack of teams with TCR cars from that part of Asia at this moment, we elected to support the growing Chinese market with the inclusion of Zhuhai in late April,” WSC Asia Limited’s David Sonenscher confirmed.
“Already we have received a significant amount of interest for the new season, and are doing our best to follow the foundations set by the TCR International Series, to support the national championships in the region, and provide their drivers with more opportunities to compete against the region’s leading teams.
“There is also a strong motorsport culture in Zhuhai – being effectively Hong Kong’s home circuit – so it made sense to be closer to the population base of teams and drivers who are looking to be involved in the TCR concept.”
The 12-round 2017 TCR Asia Series season is scheduled to begin at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia on 10-12 March.
