André Couto drafted in at Kia for Tianma

André Couto has been drafted in at Dongfeng Kia Racing Team to aid them in their bid for the 2018 CTCC titles.

The Macanese driver is going to replace Jim Ka To in one of the four Kia K3 2.0T race cars of the manufacturer backed Kia team that currently heads both the drivers’ championship and the teams’ championship.

Couto drove for SAIC VW333 Racing in the races at Ningbo earlier this season to fill in for WTCR racer Rob Huff.
