Files se­cures late Ma­cau Guia TCR en­try

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

TCR Ger­many cham­pion Josh Files has se­cured a late deal to take part in the TCR Guia Race of Ma­cau later this month.

The 25-year-old will drive the same Tar­get Com­pe­ti­tion Honda Civic that he won the Ger­man ti­tle with and will make his sec­ond ap­pear­ance in the event that forms part of the Ma­cau F3 World Cup sup­port bill. Last year Files took part in an un­com­pet­i­tive Opel Astra and is con­fi­dent of bet­ter re­sults this time.

“I’m go­ing with Tar­get Com­pe­ti­tion in a Honda, so I’m go­ing with my cham­pi­onship- win­ning car and I’m go­ing to fight for wins,” said 2013 Re­nault UK Clio Cup cham­pion Files. “This year I’m in a good car, a cham­pi­onship­win­ning car with a cham­pi­onship-win­ning team. I’m a lot more con­fi­dent to go there now and en­joy the race week­end and fight for wins.

“I have a big task at hand be­cause Ti­ago Mon­teiro [Honda World Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship driver] is do­ing it too. Mon­teiro has that bit more ex­pe­ri­ence of the cir­cuit but I have more ex­pe­ri­ence in the car.”
