Sunny Wong joins TCR Asia grid for Shanghai

Sunny Wong will join the TCR Asia series grid this weekend in a one-off outing with the Teamwork Motorsport team.

Wong, who is racing in TCR UK championship this season with the new Teamwork Huff Motorsport team, will join forces with Alex Hui in the Teamwork line-up at the wheel of an Audi RS 3 LMS.

Wong will replace Cherry Cheung, who raced the car last time out at Zhuhai.

“It’s great to be back racing in TCR Asia-China, and to be racing with Alex again,” he said. “My programme this year is pretty hectic, racing both in the UK, and also with GT in Germany in preparation for the Nürburgring 24 Hours, so a ‘local’ race will be a refreshing change of pace.

“It’ll also be interesting to race the Audi, after most of my TCR miles have been in the Volkswagen Golf. I of course drove the Audi in the 24H Dubai race in January, but this will be my first time racing with the Audi in a sprint race capacity.”
