Josh Files and Attila Tassi confirmed at KCMG

JAS Motorsport test drivers Josh Files and Attila Tassi has signed for KC Motorgroup Ltd (KCMG) to race in the 2018 TCR Europe season.

“I’ve had a busy 2018 season already in my role as offficial test driver for JAS Motorsport, but I’m a racer at heart and I can’t wait for my race season to start in TCR Europe,” said Files.

The duo will drive a par of Honda Civic Type R TCR race cars for the Hong Kong-based team KCMG, a team that has won the LMP2 category of the Le Mans 24 Hour race.

“I was already excited to know I’d be racing in TCR Europe and making my WTCR debut at Hungaroring,” said Tassi.

”But to know that I will have a team with the quality of KCMG behind me is even better. When you look at how many championships and races they’ve won in single-seaters, saloons and sportscars, you can see that the skills and experience of everyone in the team crosses over superbly. I’m sure we’ll be able to show some people that together, we can achieve strong results.”

Tassi will make his debut for the team already this weekend in the WTCR races at the Hungaroring before moving on to the TCR Europe season start on May 5-6th at Paul Ricard with his team-mate Files.

Files claimed the 2016 and 2017 TCR Germany titles while Tassi finished as runner-up in the 2017 TCR International Series.
