TCR Thailand: Krating Daeng draft in Alexander Mies

Thailand Super Series  TSS Round 3 & 4
7-10 July 2016  CIC, Buriram




There is a new face in the TCR Thailand paddock this week and that’s because Krating Daeng Racing Team is now up to its full strength of three cars.


The team originally shipped in three SEAT Léon Cup machines back in April but the third one sat idle during the season opener.


Not any longer and the team has chucked a wildcard into the pack by putting German driver Khun Alexander Mies in the cockpit for this weekend.

 
Khun Alexander arrives straight off the back of a superb result in this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hour race as he was part of the crew that took victory in the ‘Cup 5’ class driving a BMW M235i, also finishing a hugely impressive twenty fifth overall.
 

There is an enduring connection between Khun Alexander and Khun ‘Kiki’ Sak Nana, Team Manager of the Krating Daeng Racing Team and one of our leading driving stars.


 “Alexander raced with me for three years, 2013, 2015 and 2016,” explains Khun Kiki. “I promised him many times about bringing him to race in Thailand.”
 
 
The availability of the third Krating Daeng SEAT meant the pieces fell into place and the German driver was strapped in the car on Wednesday for the first time.


That the track was awash with water should have been little issue for a driver that had recently competed in the Nürburgring 24 Hours.


“He’s really excited and really keen to do it and so this is the first time we have put him in the car and we will see what happens,” added Khun Kiki, who is also in the middle of an intensive programme with VLN races in Germany both last weekend and next weekend.
