Daniel Miranda leads the Asian Trophy and sits fourth in the overall drivers’ standings, while teammate Gao Hua Yang is fourth in the Asian Trophy and eighth overall.
Built in 2016 after three years of construction, the Zhejiang circuit its cutting edge, modern facilities were designed in a bid to attract manufacturers to the ever-growing Chinese market. Zhejiang is an eastern province in China, just south of Shanghai. The 16-corner circuit is based in the Keyan area of Shaoxing and houses a 22-meter elevation change.
Having secured a solid amount of points during the last round in Shanghai, the team enter the weekend with high motivation seeking further success.
Eurasia Motorsport Team Principal, Mark Goddard:
“Eurasia Motorsport has raced twice at Zhejiang before, once in LMP3 and once in Blancpain GT. We won the race overall in the former and were top of the AM Class in the latter. Our aim is to make it three wins in row at the track in the TCR Asia International event. Daniel is coming straight from a great result in the Formula Vita event at Suzuka so we expect his confidence to be on a high and I am sure he will be determined to be on the podium again at Zhejiang. Gao once again demonstrated in the last event that he can race really well and if he can unlock his qualifying potential, he will be a driver to watch.”
“I’ve never been to Zhejiang before, so it will be a challenge. But it should be a lot of fun as well and I’m really looking forward to the penultimate round of 2019. I’m improving at every race in my first year of TCR Asia and hopefully I can get back on the podium again in China.”
Gao Hua Yang:
“This week we will race in Zhejiang Circuit. It’s a new track for me, and I had two movies shoot here in the last year, but I never got chance to drive on track! The team and I are developing together well after the first three races and I’m getting more confidence. This kind of track with elevation difference is also my favourite, so I hope we can move forward with a big step here. Once I find the rhythm, I will try to give the best show, let’s see what happens.”
