Clio Cup Ace Files To Make TCR Debut In Macau Finale


2013 Renault UK Clio Cup champion Josh Files will make his TCR International Series debut next weekend (21/22 November) during the 2015 season finale in Macau.

Files has signed up to compete with Campos Racing in one of their Opel Astra OPC’s, partnering European Touring Car regular Igor Skuz at the Spanish outfit.

The outing comes at the end of a successful Clio Cup Italia campaign with Rangoni Corse, finishing third overall in the standings with four wins to his name.

The 24 year old is one of three British drivers in the thirty car entry for Macau, which will feature two ten lap races around the infamous Guia street circuit.
