With the Formula Drift off season now in full effect, some drivers have taken to relaxing while others are still active behind the wheel. We reported that Tyler McQuarrie was busy shattering lap records behind the wheel of the FXMD NSX, and now we focus on Charles Ng who is competing in the World Touring Car Championship.
Charles Ng will take the wheel of the #51 Liqui Moly Team Engstler BMW 320TC pictured above at the finale of the 2011 World Touring Car Championship at the legendary Macau Guia Street Circuit. This is the same race circuit that has seen the likes of Senna, Schumacher, and most recently current F1 Champion Sebastian Vettel and is often regarded as one of the most challenging and dangerous race circuits in the world alongside Monaco.
Charles’ last race in the BMW was in Shanghai where he managed to capture a 4th place class victory and 10th place overall. An impressive feat considering the little seat time in the BMW while competing against some of the world’s top touring car drivers.
Practice begins tomorrow and Qualifying on Friday. You can cheer Charles on by catching the race live on Eurosport, or on FIAWTCC.com. Best of Luck to Charles in Macau!
