Rob Huff, one of the greatest touring car racers of his generation and the undisputed ‘King of Macau’, will join WestCoast Racing for this year’s Macau Guia Race, the final event of the 2015 TCR International Series.
The 2012 FIA World Touring Car Champion has achieved no fewer than seven race wins in the former Portuguese dominion over the course of a decade at the pinnacle of international touring car racing and will likely have a shot at increasing his tally driving a JAS Motorsport-built Honda Civic TCR.
“Macau’s Circuito da Guia is quite simply the most challenging racetrack I’ve ever raced on and my record is strong there. I’m really pleased to have been invited to drive in the TCR International Series finale there and I am confident we will have a competitive package for this truly unique event,” said Huff who added:
“It also serves as a great opportunity to team up with my young protégé Kevin Gleason, who has emerged as a race winner in the inaugural season of the TCR International Series. It will be a lot of fun and I’ll certainly be trying to get more Macau wins!”
WestCoast Racing Team Manager, James Nixon, said: “Rob is widely regarded as one of the world’s best touring car drivers and is unquestionably the most successful driver ever to compete in Macau so we are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome him to WestCoast Racing for the event to bolster our existing squad.”
