JAS Motorsport has announced that it is to supply two all-new Honda Civic TCR cars for the TCR Asia series. The two cars are to be driven by long-standing JAS customers, Kenneth Lau and Michael Choi. The two Civics will enter the Sepang round of the championship 5-6 September and then continue with the TCR International series in Thailand, Singapore and Macau.
Lau and Choi have run JAS prepared Accords in Asia since 2009 and announced plans to move to the burgeoning TCR Asia series earlier.
“These are the first JAS Civic TCR cars in Asia,” explained Mads Fischer, customer support manager for JAS Motorsport. “Kenneth and Michael have been loyal customers of JAS for years and we are delighted that they are joining the TCR category. We have a lot on enquiries from Asia and have laid down a batch of 6 cars to be ready for January delivery as we expect existing and new customers to sign up for the TCR Asia series. The Benelux series is also picking up speed quickly and we expect to have cars running there in 2016.”
