Asia Racing Team enters two cars for TCR Asia Series

Asia Racing Team is going to field two cars in the first ever season of the new TCR Asia Series.

“We can see the huge benefits of being involved with the TCR Series in Asia. Touring car racing has a huge heritage in Asia but we have been more than a decade waiting for the professionalisation of a new category to step in. The TCR global concept and the Asian series package offered includes a strong calendar, good-looking cars, close racing and affordable budgets – they were key factors in our decision to take part in the series,” said ” Phillipe Descombes, Team Manager of ART.

The team is going to run two SEAT León TCR specification cars for two yet to be revealed drivers in the season opener at Sepang on September 4-6th.

Asia Racing Team has run single seaters and GT cars for the past 15 years and claims to be one of the most successful motorsport teams in Asia.

“I’m overjoyed to have ART join the TCR Asia Series in our debut season. They are a well recognised team in Asia, and very successful in a variety of categories, so for them to sign up for the maiden season only reinforces the foundation of why we wanted to introduce the Asian series this year,” said David Sonenscher, TCR Asia Series promoter.
