Another rookie in WTCC
Tin Sritrai will make his debut in the World Touring Car Championship when his native country Thailand will host the penultimate round of the championship from October 31st to November 1st.
Sritrai will drive Campos Racing’s third Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 alongside regular drivers Hugo Valente and John Filippi. He competed in the 2012 Race of Champions in Bangkok and was the winner of the Touring car series in Asia between 2012 and 2014, with a good chance to take a title again this year.
The 26-year-old is well known in his country not just as racer, but also as a member of rock band ‘Yellow Duck’ and host of the sports show ‘Sport Charming’ on Thai national television.
“I am so happy to get this opportunity to graduate to the WTCC for my home race. It’s a really big chance to learn from the best and I can’t wait to get my first experience. I will do my best to build my knowledge in the hope that I can race in the WTCC for the full time in the future,” said Sritrai.
Tin comes from a racing family as his father was the Thai Rally Championship winner, while his younger brother Vasin is also successful in various national and Asian series.
