Cherry Cheung makes her debut in TCR Malaysia with Teamwork
Cherry Cheung started racing in 2018. For the entire year, she has been coached and trained by a Teamwork member Samuel Hsieh. Session by session, race by race, Cherry was able to place herself regularly in the front-runner pack in TMC and Chinese Cup of China.
2019 marks Cherry’s second year in racing, and she decides to challenge herself in more intense racing arenas. TCR Malaysia turns out to be her first taste of the TCR Series before she commits further more later this year.
In order to prepare for her TCR debut, Cherry went under training in a VW Golf GTI TCR in Teamwork’s Guangdong base with Samuel in the winter.
Cherry Cheung said, “My dream is to race with my Teamwork brothers in the Macau GP one day. There is still a long way to go and right now I have to get as much seat time as possible. Racing in different circuits helps me learn how to learn new circuits, which is very important at this point. I am also very grateful to have Samuel as a coach and friend. He will be in TCR Malaysia with me to monitor my performance and help me with difficult decisions which I don’t yet have the knowledge to make. All in all, I am very excited to make my debut TCR race with Teamwork and I will put together everything I’ve learnt from last year for this outing.”
Samuel Hsieh said, “I’ve been able to follow Cherry as a coach since day one, after seeing her progress in her rookie year, and she had shown her interests in TCR, so making her TCR debut with Teamwork is a sensible thing to do, the team which I’ve been with for over a decade, so I know she’ll be in good hands. It will be her first time racing in Sepang, so simulator work is a must, also improving her fitness to adapt to the heat in Malaysia.”
TCR Malaysia will be hosted on 23-34 Feb at the Sepang International Circuit.
