New Civics to join TCR China grid at Zhejiang

The FL5 version of the Honda Civic Type R will make its debut in TCR China when the series heads to the Zhejiang International Circuit.

Having run in an older FK7 Civic during his debut in Shanghai, Jack Young Рwho currently sits fifth in the points Рwill now get the chance to sample the FL5 for the time, as will team-mate André Couto.

Couto will be making his first appearance of the season having inked a deal to compete alongside Young in the Dongfeng Honda Racing team.

The two new cars will be part of a field of 34 entered for the weekend, with Lynk & Co racer David Zhu currently leading the way ahead of team-mate Jason Zhang.

Martin Cao – who joined Zhu in scoring a race win during round one – lies in third place.
