TCR Thailand on the starting blocks

TCR Thailand on the starting blocks

19 May 2016

After a lot of talk and anticipation TCR Thailand finally takes off this weekend at Buriram’s Chang International Circuit.
The entry list includes six SEAT León and two Honda Civic cars; amongst the drivers are a couple of experienced guys: Carlo van Dam from Netherlands, a class winner in the Japanese F3 Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours, and local hero Jack Lemvard, twice a champion in the Thai SuperSeries.

Van Dam, who drives a SEAT for Singha Motorsport Team, said: “I have enjoyed my outings in the Super 2000 class before and I’m very excited to be part of a new chapter for touring car racing in Thailand. I believe the TCR series will see a lot of close racing and I am determined to win it.”

Lemvard will be in a SEAT too, but for OMP Vattana Motorsport: “TCR is something I really like so I can improve myself as a better driver,” he said. “We all have had limited testing or none so it will be even more fun and we can see who can adapt the quickest. I think the first two races will be fun especially with the reverse grid for Race 2. I have prepared myself a bit more than usual this year so I’m very ready!”

Other competitors to watch are the reigning Super Car Class 3-GTC champion Grant Supaphong and Chen Jian Hong, teammates at Krating Daeng Racing Team.
