Battle to Macau - Final Rehersal
Teamwork conducted 4 days of testing in the Zhuhai International Circuit from 30th Oct to 2nd Nov. This was the final testing before the Macau GP - FOOD4U Macau Touring Car Cup, and the entire team participated.
Three Peugeot RCZ, Audi TTRS, Subaru Impreza, and all five Teamwork drivers had gone through different programs in order to collect the most data about settings, tire wear, fuel consumption… etc, out of the very limited testing time.
Besides our drivers, Teamwork also got help from the 9-time Macau GP winner, current WTCR driver Robert Huff. Not only Huff could pin point issues of the race cars, he also patiently communicated with our drivers to help them understand and learn their weapons to an extend that they would have never thought of.
Robert Huff said, “Teamwork used to race with FWD race cars and they have been quite dominant. This year the team is sending two AWD race cars to the race, and I am happy to see the team taking up new challenges. Last year I helped with the RCZ testing and this year the cars are not too much different, just a little quicker, more stable and more aerodynamic. My job this time is to help the drivers to get up to speed more easily. I am also very impressed with how Samson and Sunny got used to their high-power AWD weapons, I think they will enjoy and have fun with the Audi TTRS and Subaru on the circuit. I’ve never raced a AWD race car in Macau but the main difference is they have four wheels to lay down the power on the tarmac so expect very quick lap time from those two cars. Finally I wish the Teamwork boys all the best!” Teamwork is also wishing Huff all the best in WTCR Macau.
After 4 days of testing, all cars will return to Teamwork’s Guangdong base for final check up before loading them into containers to the Guia Circuit.
