The Campos Racing team has announced yet another driver change, confirming that Henry Kwong will make his WTCC debut at the series’ visit to Suzuka next weekend.
The 28-year-old will pilot the team’s second SEAT León TC2T-class car alongside regular driver John Filippi.
Hong Kong-born Kwong comes with plenty of racing experience, having competed in the Hong Kong Touring Car Championship, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia and the Volkswagen Scirocco-R Cup China, in which he was runner-up in 2012.
Kwong is the third Hong Kong driver to compete for the Spanish outfit this year, with his compatriots Michael Soong and William Lok having had one-off outings at the Goldenport Park and Shanghai Chinese rounds respectively.
Kwong will be be hoping to deliver better performance than both, however. Soong was withdrawn from the Beijing races after crashing his car in qualifying, while Lok (pictured above) lasted just a handful of laps in the opening race at Shanghai before he destroyed his front suspension when he clobbered a tyre stack.
Kwong’s outing will definitely be a one-off, with former WTCC race-winner Pepe Oriola making his return for the curtain-closing races on the streets of Macau next month.
