The Campos Racing team will field its fourth different driver in its second SEAT León WTCC, announcing that Michael Soong will race in the outfit’s TC2T class car at this weekend’s inaugural visit to Beijing’s Goldenport Park Circuit.

It will be the 34-year-old Hong Kong-born driver’s second WTCC outing, after making his series debut at last year’s Macau finale for the same team. Unfortunately Soong won’t have fond memories of that hit-out – literally – after seriously damaging his car with three separate crashes over the weekend.

Soong has plenty of experience in touring cars. After making his debut in his national touring car championship in 2004, he’s claimed a total of eight outright race wins in the Hong Kong championship and a further two victories in the higher-level Chinese Touring Car Championship.

Soong will partner the team’s regular driver, Corsica’s John Filippi, this weekend.
