FRD Ford Racing Hong Kong signed Robb Holland to driver its Ford Focus in the TCR International Series event at Buriram, Thailand.
The Afro-American driver approached touring car competitions in the SCCA World Challenge, before becoming a regular competitor in the British Touring Car Championship and the VLN endurance series in Germany. He also took part in the American round of the FIA WTCC in 2012.
"I have worked with the FRD Team for a few years and I know that Kenneth Ma runs a very good programme. The Ford Focus has struggled this year, but now that FRD has taken over the car I am sure that it can be developed very quickly into one that can challenge for wins. I have no expectations for this weekend other than to help the team develop the Focus into a competitive package. If we can get some good results on the weekend it would be a great bonus,"Holland said.
Team principal Kenneth Ma, who drove the Focus in Singapore, added: “Robb has good experience of the Ford Focus car and helped us in its technical development. I hope he can prove the performance of the Focus TCR in Thailand.”
