WestCoast Racing look forward to the new challenge of Zhejiang

Publicerad 5 oktober 2017, 09.21 av WestCoast Racing.

WestCoast Racing are now all set for the penultimate round of the TCR International Championship which takes place this weekend (7-8 October) at Zhejiang Circuit, China.

The Swedish-based team will run Gianni Morbidelli alongside Rafael Galiana this weekend. The latter joins the team for the first time this year having last competed with WestCoast Racing in Thailand in 2016.

“We know Rafael fairly well and we’re looking forward to working with him again this weekend,” stated team manager James Nixon. “We head into the race weekend with high expectations – we always expect to be competitive and this weekend should be no different.

“Gianni’s car has shed 30 kilos in success ballast and that can only be to our advantage. We’ve won races this year and while we have had some tougher races, we’re looking for a strong finish to the season as a base to our 2018 international and national programmes.”

This round of the championship sees TCR International sharing the grid with TCR Asia and TCR China, and for WestCoast Racing, offers the chance to add to the two wins and 130 points already secured this year.

The Zhejiang Circuit is located 200km south of Shanghai and the action gets underway Friday with testing before further free practice sessions on Saturday. Qualifying take place from 15:30 with the races getting underway from 14:30 Sunday.
