The 2015 TCR International Series concludes in the Suncity Group 62nd Macau Grand Prix later this week (19-22 November) and young American, Kevin Gleason, is keen to conquer the infamous Circuito da Guia street track.
Gleason has been impressive during his maiden campaign on the world stage, instantly marking himself out as a regular threat for race wins, podium finishes and pole positions and remaining in the title hunt until the final throes of the TCR International season.
However, the world’s newest touring car series reaches its climax in the Suncity Group 62nd Macau Grand Prix – a glittering highlight in the international motorsport calendar – later this week (19-22 November) and Gleason hopes to star as part of WestCoast Racing’s four-driver line-up, which includes his mentor and seven-time Macau winner, Rob Huff. a
Gleason, aged 28, last scaled the top step of the winners’ rostrum under the gaze of Formula 1 teams and drivers in Singapore, conquering the floodlit Marina Bay street track, which, like Macau’s Guia circuit, is also high-speed in nature and he subsequently has high hopes for the forthcoming finale in the former Portuguese colony.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be racing in this year’s Macau Grand Prix,” said Gleason. “The track has a steep history and is one of the toughest races on the planet, so it¹s going to be a huge challenge, one of the biggest I have ever faced in racing. However, it is a challenge that I am really looking forward to tackling. The Singapore F1 track is a fast street circuit and I notched up a win there, so I am ready to rebound from a tough weekend in Thailand, with the only positive from that being I have no success ballast. It¹s been a phenomenal year working with WestCoast Racing and I am going to work really hard to deliver a result for them to end the season.”
