Extra BMW and Chevrolet to take part at Macau finale

Macau-based team RPM Motorsport will run a normally aspirated BMW 320si for 46-year-old Mak Ka Lok at the World Touring Car Championship’s finale at Macau on November 20th, whilst Corsa Motorsport add a second Lacetti to their entry.

RPM Motorsport, who have run a Honda Integra for Mak Ka Lok in the Asian Touring Car Series, previously ran a BMW 320si at the Guia circuit in 2009 for another Macanese driver, Lei Kit Meng.

Lei’s best result was 19th in the shortened second race which was red flagged after a crash between André Couto and Franz Engstler.

Corsa Motorsport, who have previously announced they’ll be running a Chevrolet Lacetti for Felipe de Souza have added a second car for fellow Macau resident Kuok Io Keong, whilst 778 Autosport are also on the official entry list for the event with their ex-STCC Peugeot 308 for CTCC driver Lo Ka Chun.

Along with the already announced entries for Philip Ma at Proteam and Jo Merszei at Engstler (driving the car in which Fabio Fabiani will compete this weekend in Shanghai), the expanded entry means there will be five normally aspirated cars running in the final race of the season, and a grand total of 26 cars, though the fourth RML Chevrolet and Wiechers-Sport’s BMW 320 TC, both previously listed with drivers as TBC, have been withdrawn from the entry list.
