The first of two Kia Cee’d TCR cars has arrived in New Zealand and will join the growing grid for the inaugural TCR New Zealand Series, commencing later this year.
The pair of Kia cars will be represented in the Australian and New Zealand markets by Choice Performance Ltd who have been appointed as the official agent for the Cee’d’s manufacturer, Austrian company STARD.
The Pukekohe, NZ-based team, known for their rallying exploits, will import the Kia Cee’d TCR extending its relationship with Andrew Simms, the largest Kia Dealer in New Zealand, with the intention of running them both in TCR New Zealand and TCR Australia.
Choice Performance is yet to announce their driver line-up for the TCR New Zealand Series, which is expected to commence in November 2020; its full 2020/21 calendar will be confirmed in due course.
Team principal Choice Little said: “Having worked closely with Manfred Stohl and his team I am exceptionally excited for this opportunity. We are confident of achieving strong results in the New Zealand and Australian championships with the Kia Cee’d TCR and look forward to fostering our strong relationship with STARD who are exceptionally customer friendly.”
