First entry for TCR Middle East announced

American racer Brandon Gdovic is the first driver to enter the inaugural season of the TCR Middle East Series, starting next weekend in Dubai.

“I’m really excited to be racing in Dubai for the first time and getting the opportunity to race in the TCR series. It will be a lot of firsts for me, but I’m looking forward to it and hoping for some good results,” said Gdovic.

The 24-year-old will drive a Volkswagen Golf for Team Engstler and has driven various NASCAR categories in the past, most recently finishing as runner-up in the 2016 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America in the ProAm category.

The 2017 TCR Middle East Series runs over three race weekends, ending in March.
