Macau’s Henry Ho joins TCR Asia Series for 2016 season 2016 TCR Asia Series
Multiple Macau Touring Car champion Henry Ho made his TCR International Series debut on the streets of his home Guia Circuit last year, the Macanese driver impressive in early practice, running inside the top five before electrical gremlins and an opening lap crash kept him from claiming a result in the two races that capped off the inaugural season.
Despite being a relatively short campaign, Ho was nonetheless inspired by the experience, the three time Macau Touring Car champion and Chinese Touring Car Championship front-runner admitting he was a big fan of the TCR concept and desperate to be a part of TCR Asia’s second season.
Ho is still working out the finer details on team logistics for his Honda entry, but he is convinced the JAS Motorsport prepared Civic will be one of the cars to beat this year.
The opening round of the 2016 TCR Asia Series will get underway on 14-15 May at the former Formula 1 venue in South Korea. Any teams looking at becoming involved with the TCR concept in the Asian region, should make contact via [email protected]
