Teamwork Motorsport celebrate wild card success at Macau

Teamwork Motorsport had a strong World Touring Car debut in their Audi RS 3 LMS, with Kevin Tse finishing as the best-placed of the wild card drivers in both of Sunday’s races.

Two of the six wild card entries failed to qualify, while Tse was comfortably inside the 105% time of pole-sitter Rob Huff, although qualified behind the MacPro Racing Honda Civic TCR of André Couto for Race 1, he was the highest wild card qualifier for the final two races.

Tse finished the first race on Sunday in 18th, and the second race 17th, avoiding the few incidents on the way, while his car, which had been mothballed for a year after being raced in the 2017 TCR Asia Series by Phoenix Racing Asia, developed a fuel system fault in Saturday’s race and needed to be replaced.

“Teamwork were very occupied this weekend, running six cars in total, five in the Macau Cup support race in addition to my Audi RS 3 LMS, and everything went perfectly,” said Tse.

“My engineer was very experienced and he guided me well and worked out exactly what we needed to do session by session. To finish as the best of the wild cards on Sunday is something with which I am very satisfied, both in terms of the results, as well as my qualifying and race pace.”

Team principal Paul Hui added: “I think as a wild card entry this has been an amazing result for us, especially when you consider this is the last race of the season and everyone’s trying to get put together a strong performance at Macau.”
