Having competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Asian Le Mans Series, Eurasia Motorsport expanded their programme for 2019 joining the TCR Asia Series for the first time.
No stranger to the Eurasia operation, 23 year-old Daniel Miranda returns to the team, the Filipino driver will campaign the successful Hyundai i30 N TCR.
“We have been looking at TCR for several years and with Daniel we could see a perfect opportunity to join with a young talented driver who should be competitive from the first event,” Team Principal Mark Goddard confirmed. “He is already a National Touring Car champion and his year in Formula Renault with us gave him the opportunity to hone his talent to the point where we are confident the he’ll be competitive in International Touring cars.”
TCR is a global success story with National, Regional and a World Championships for the two-litre turbo-charged touring cars, which provide close, fast and cost-effective racing.
Eurasia Motorsport has joined Hyundai - the 2018 WTCR FIA World Touring Car Cup winning package - with the aim of introducing young talented drivers to a career in Touring Cars.
Miranda was the 2017 Philippine Toyota Vios Champion before joining Eurasia Motorsport for a season in Asian Formula Renault. Whilst the Filipino's long term aim has always been a career in Touring Cars, the year he spent in Formula cars honed his skills allowing him to make the transition to the regional Touring Car championship with the skill set that only junior Formula cars can provide.
Eurasia Motorsport has a long tradition in nurturing the talents of young drivers. The team was responsible for the early training of Daniel Ricciardo and Antonio Giovinazzi, both of whom compete in Formula 1
