Bamboo-engineering announced today that Yukinori Taniguchi will not be racing in the WTCC final event at Macau this weekend.

The extent of the damage sustained in the crash the Japanese driver had two weeks ago during the first race at Shanghai Tianma has meant that the team have been unable to repair the car in time for this weekend’s event.

Team Principal Richard Coleman said: “It’s obviously very disappointing for Yuke and the team, but unfortunately we just haven’t had enough time to repair the car. Being on the other side of the world has made it logistically more difficult with a demanding freight schedule. If this had occurred at one of the European events, then we would have had the car repaired, no problem. It’s just unfortunate that this amount of damage has occurred between these two events.”
