Daniel Lloyd joins Dongfeng Honda Racing for TCR China
29 April 2019
Reigning TCR UK Champion Daniel Lloyd will contest the TCR China Championship this season with the Dongfeng Honda Racing Team, operated by MacPro Racing Team.
Lloyd makes his TCR China debut this coming weekend, piloting one of the squad’s Civic Type R FK8 machines alongside new team-mate Martin Xie as the championship gets underway at Zhuhai International Circuit.
The Yorkshireman last raced on the Guangdong Province circuit in 2017, where he claimed a maiden podium on his CTCC debut with a second-placed finish, and is relishing the chance of returning to racing in Asia.
“I’m delighted to heading back to China,” commented Lloyd. “I have really happy memories of racing in the CTCC and GT Asia Series. The Dongfeng Honda Racing Team have a great set-up, and are championship winners so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do together this season. I’ve raced at four of the five circuits on the calendar before, so I’m familiar with most of the tracks. Hopefully this will put me in good stead. TCR has been great for me, and led to lots of new opportunities. Fingers crossed, this deal will lead to even more doors opening up in some of the other TCR series around the world.”
