The Boutsen Ginion Racing will rejoin the TCR International Series from the German event at Oschersleben and for the rest of the season.
After successfully taking part in its home event at Spa-Francorchamps with two Honda Civic cars for Tom Coronel and Benjamin Lessennes (who finished second and fifth), the Belgian team has entered one Civic for Aurélien Panis, the 22-year old son of former Formula One driver Olivier.
After an apprenticeship in different single-seater series, Panis has moved to Touring Cars during the current season, driving a Honda Civic in the FIA World Championship.
Panis commented: "I am very happy to join the Boutsen Ginion Racing team for the end of the TCR International Series and also to continue the adventure with Honda in a competitive team. While trying to fight for the best possible results, I am very excited to start this new challenge in Oschersleben!"
Team Manager Olivier Lainé: “We are delighted to welcome Aurélien for the continuation of the TCR International Series. He has already driven for us in the TCR Benelux and posted very competitive lap times during a test day in Zolder. Our team is excited for this new challenge in such a top-level series. In parallel, we will continue to participate in the TCR Benelux with Benjamin Lessennes who is currently leading the championship.”
