Taniguchi defends Asia Trophy (...)

In a last-minute move, Yukinori Taniguchi has signed with Campos Racing to drive the Spanish team’s third SEAT León car at Shanghai.

The Japanese driver had made his first appearance of the season in the previous race meeting at Suzuka, replacing Fredy Barth in the Wiechers-Sport BMW 320si.

Taniguchi finished both races in second place of the Asia Trophy and emerged as the first leader with 16 points, one and three more that his fellow countrymen Masaki Kano and Takuya Izawa respectively.

His rivals in Shanghai will be five drivers from Macau: Jerónimo Badaraco (Son Veng Racing Team Chevrolet Cruze), Filipe de Souza and Ng Kim Veng (China Dragon Racing Chevrolet Cruze), Mak Ka Lok (RPM Racing BMW 320si) and Ho Wai Kun (Liqui Moly Team Engstler BMW 320si).
