“ I am really pleased that we can finally get back to Touring car racing in Asia. We have been constantly monitoring the situation over the past few years and we feel that this is the right time to get things going again.” I have received a lot of interest, and a certain amount of pressure, from Teams and Drivers since Macau last November and that encouraged me to push ahead to make this happen.
