With the maiden season of the TCR Asia Series fast approaching, cars are starting to arrive in Malaysia ahead of the opening round (Sepang, 4-6 September), but whilst teams are working feverishly to prepare for the event, so too the promoters who will be in Singapore this weekend for a pre-Grand Prix launch at the ‘Light Up The Night’ Carnival.
In conjunction with the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix, the Singapore Airlines ‘Light Up The Night’ Carnival provides local fans a chance to get a feeling for what the annual F1 Grand Prix has to offer, with both the TCR International and TCR Asia Series competing at the popular street race.
“This is a great opportunity to showcase what TCR is all about in front of the fans, the organisers and the competitors,” David Sonenscher, the TCR Asia Series promoter and the Asian region’s representative of WSC Ltd explained.
“It’s an annual event in Singapore, and with their ‘SG50’ festivities (celebrating Singapore’s 50th birthday) taking place on the same weekend, it’s sure to attract a huge crowd.
Prince TCR“Both of the new Prince Racing JAS Motorsport-prepared Honda Civics will be there in a static display alongside all the other pre-Grand Prix promotions taking place, whilst the Craft-Bamboo Racing Seat León will be featured in a moving display at 2:00pm and 8:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday, driven by Young Asian star Matthew Solomon.”
It’s an exciting time for the new category, which will not only bring international class Touring Car competition back to the Asian region, but will also see two other Regional and 11-national championships begin for the 2016 season.
The Singapore Airlines ‘Light Up The Night’ Carnival will take place at the F1 Pit Building, 1 Republic Boulevard in Singapore between 1:00pm and 9:00pm on August 22 and 23.
