The TCR Asia Series will return to Bangsaen for the third time in succession, this time as the host of the season finale. Of the four races contested on the Chonburi beach circuit, the champion elect hasn’t won a single race, with the points leaders traditionally facing dramas on the tight, 20-corner venue where any minor contact has major consequences.

For Liqui Moly team Engstler they come into the final event of the season as points leaders for the fourth year in succession, with only reigning champion Luca Engstler or team-mate Diego Moran capable of taking the teams fourth drivers crown, and with Moran having stood on the podium once each in 2017 and 2018, he may well start favourite..
