February 24, 2019

The LA Honda World Race Team, fresh off a victory in Daytona, will be competing in the TC America Blancpain GT World Challenge March 1-3rd, 2019.

The  New TC America creates a unique and exclusive brand identity for the  popular touring car classes.   LA Honda World will be entering the IMSA-numbered #52 Yellow Honda  TCR Type R driven by Harry Cheung.   In the TC America Blancpain GT World Challenge, the vehicle will carry the number #14.

Building on a 1,2 podium finish at Daytona in the TCR Class, the team carries momentum into the March 1-3rd race at the Circuit of the Americas looking for more podium finishes.

TC America provides some very exciting touring car racing in the country with non-stop action throughout 40 minute sprint races.

Circuit  of the Americas is a world class destination for motorsports in the  United States.  Set on 1,500 acres in the rolling hills just outside  downtown Austin, TX, Circuit of the Americas is a 20 turn, counterclockwise circuit which includes a 133 foot hill at Turn 1.

Team  Principle Mario Biundo states, “Bringing home the trophies from Daytona  in our first race of the season was tremendous and we greatly  anticipate a hard fought race at COTA, one of the most exciting tracks  in the United States”.

LA  Honda World Racing partner Luis Perocarpi of LAP Motorsports exclaims  that, “The Honda TCR Type R has proved to be one of the most competitive  race cars in the TCR class globally and as evidenced by the podium  finishes in Daytona. Going into COTA we anticipate a strong performance.”
