Lynk & Co and Cyan Racing have agreed to form a joint performance vehicle development program. As part of the agreement Cyan Racing will compete in the 2019 World Touring Car Cup with a Lynk & Co 03 TCR race car.
“The fusion between Lynk & Co and Cyan Racing will form the spearhead of our automotive performance debut,” said Victor Yang, VP of Communications at Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.
“The combination of Lynk & Co’s challenge of auto industry conventions and Cyan Racing’s vast motorsport and performance experience are two key elements in this unique cooperation.”
A joint performance vehicle development project. A 500ps high-performance concept road car, named the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan, will be built as Cyan Racing’s interpretation of a TCR race car for the road. The concept car will be the first step toward an extended performance offering.
“Our ambition as a race team is to reclaim the world title and explore new ways of automotive performance together with Lynk & Co. We will utilize our experience from past performance road car projects in combination with the vast data that we will gain from the racing program through thousands and thousands of laps on racing circuits all over the world in extreme conditions,” said Christian Dahl, CEO of Cyan Racing.
