Kevin Gleason’s second full-time TCR International Series campaign didn’t get off to the best of starts, but the all-star American racing driver is determined to get back to winning ways in Estoril, Portugal this weekend (23-24 April).
A luckless Gleason retired from both races in the season opening round of the TCR series in Bahrain, but Gleason remains positive ahead of this weekend’s races at Circuito do Estoril and will look to harness the pace and determination that saw him lead race two until past mid-distance last time out.
“I’m really looking forward to getting started at Estoril and moving on from the disappointing weekend in Bahrain,” said Kevin Gleason. “When I was racing in the season-opener, it felt good and the car felt quick, so I have every reason to be optimistic that I can be challenging for race victories and podiums going into this weekend.”
As seen in 2015, Gleason easily has the potential to compete for the TCR International title, securing victories, podium finishes and pole positions across the season. Now in Portugal, and in 2016, Gleason is ready to get his title bid off the line.
Gleason continued: “This is a new circuit for me but it looks like a fun track, a bit old school, which is a nice change from the modern Formula 1-style track in Bahrain. From today, I will be working closely with the team to get our setup right so we are in the best position possible come raceday. Following Bahrain, I am more determined than ever to deliver some championship points for me and the team this weekend.”
You can watch the all American racer, Kevin Gleason, get back to winning ways on Sunday 24 April. Racing starts at 10:00, with the first TCR International Series race at 11:25 and the final showdown scheduled for 17:05.
Live streaming of both encounters will be available on the official www.tcr-series.com website, where you can also follow all the news during the build-up to this weekend’s race action.
