Peugeot ace to compete in TCR Asia Pacific Cup at Albert Park
The invasion of international drivers continues to occupy the TCR Asia Pacific Cup grid, with star Peugeot pilot Julien Briché confirmed to drive in a Peugeot 308 at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix next month.
The 38-year-old Frenchman will drive the Peugeot 308 TCR that Aurélien Comte debuted in the final round of the TCR Australia Series at The Bend last November.
Briché is an expert hand at TCR racing, having competed in a number of the turbo-charged championships around the world.
Most recently, he finished second in the TCR Europe, driving for the crack Peugeot Sport team.
Like Comte’s entry at The Bend last year, Briché will have a number of dedicated Peugeot Sport engineers on hand to assist with his #308 car, alongside the GRM Customer Racing team.
Briché is one of four international entrants already entered in the TCR Asia Pacific Cup, joining German ace René Münnich (Honda), New Zealander Jack Milligan (Audi) and Dutchman Stan van Oord (Audi).
Briché is the second confirmed Peugeot for the field, with former Bathurst 1000 champion Jason Bargwanna already confirmed for the Albert Park event and the entire TCR Australia Series.
The final entry list for the TCR Asia Pacific Cup will be revealed soon, with more internationals expected to be confirmed, as well as a host of established and rising star talent ready to take on the challenge of Albert Park.
The Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix will host three TCR Asia Pacific Cup races over the four day race weekend, to be held at the famous Albert Park street circuit on March 12-15.
