The Sepang International Circuit and Team Engstler continue their successful partnership for the SIC programme that aims to develop Malaysian motorsport talents.
In 2018 the team entered Mitchell Cheah in the TCR Asia Series and the young Malaysian finished runner up to his teammate Luca Engstler.
Razlan Razali, CEO of SIC: “We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Engstler Motorsport, as they have proven their ability in developing our young drivers. The next step for Cheah and the team is assessing the nominated drivers who emerged in the 2018 Malaysian Championship Series and to guide them in their participation in TCR Malaysia.”
Three drivers will be selected and each one of them will take part in one TCR Malaysia event racing a Volkswagen Golf GTI car; the best of them, as decided by the team and Cheah, will be entered in the 2019 TCR Asia Series.
Adam Khalid, 20 years old, coming from the F4 South East Asia Championship was selected for the opening event.
“We are proud of our collaboration with SIC and we will actively support the young driver development programme for the next three years,” said Kurt Treml, Sport & Marketing Director.
