Eurasia Motorsport has already confirmed a strong driver pairing in Daniel Miranda and Gao Hau Yang, fielding two brand new Hyundai i30 N TCRs.
"The team is excited to be starting this new adventure in the TCR Asia International Series with our Hyundai i30N cars,” stated Team Principal Mark Goddard. “Daniel returns to us after his season in Asian Formula Renault in which he was a podium finisher in his rookie year. A relatively powerful front wheel drive car is a new experience for him, but he has the talent to be able to adapt quickly and I am confident he will quickly become competitive.
“We are really happy to have ‘Zack’ Gao Hau Yang on board for the season too,” Goddard continued. “He has a wealth of experience in China Touring Cars and whilst he has had a couple of seasons away from racing, I’m sure he will quickly get up to speed. He is a strong addition to the championship as he has a great profile in China due to his roles in movies and TV shows.
Having won championships is Formula cars, GTs and LMP categories, the team are looking forward with their new recruits to another strong season of competition. For Daniel, his debut in touring cars is something he has been looking forward to for some time.
“I am really pumped to be racing internationally in Touring cars and happy to be back with Eurasia Motorsport, my team from last year,” the Filipino stated. “It’s a new challenge and I am ready for it. Sepang is one of my favourite circuits which gives me more confidence for the first event. I have to thank Cebuana Lhuillier for their support and helping me compete internationally, representing the Philippines.”
Practice gets underway this Friday followed by two qualifying sessions early Saturday morning. Race one starts at 15.20 local time Saturday with the second round Sunday at 09.50.
