Morgan will re­turn to Chi­nese Tour­ing Cars

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish racer Adam Morgan will make his sec­ond ap­pear­ance in the Chi­nese Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship in Novem­ber.

The BTCC driver, who reg­u­larly races a Cice­ley Rac­ing Mercedes-benz A-class, trav­elled to South Korea in July to con­test two races for the 333 Rac­ing team, and won the opener be­fore an en­gine prob­lem in the sec­ond ruled him out.

He was at the wheel of a two-litre tur­bocharged VW La­mando, which is equiv­a­lent to a Euro­pean-style Pas­sat car.

“It was a real last-minute deal, but a very ex­cit­ing chance,” said Morgan. “The cars were great and the rac­ing was com­pet­i­tive, but I clicked with the car re­ally well. I want to get more chances to do that. I was there to help my team­mates learn and I think I did that.”

Morgan said he has been in­vited back to take part in the fi­nal rounds of the cham­pi­onship in Shang­hai. “The cars are Tcr-style, and there has been some talk of rac­ing at Ma­cau too. I would bite their arm off to get that chance,” said Morgan.
