Cebu Pacific Air by KCMG has announced that Chinese driver Yuan Bo will pilot the Hong Kong-based squad’s fifth car in Formula Masters China Series’ (FMCS) remaining events for 2015.
Bo will represent the team in Kuala Lumpur, Zhuhai and Shanghai. The 28 year-old Star Racing Academy (SRA) graduate will first join Nicholas Rowe, Martin Rump and compatriots Jeffrey Ye and Sean Zheng in Formula Masters fourth event, which will be staged on the streets of Malaysia’s bustling capital.
The Chinese driver has made a mark in various GT and Touring car championships across the region, significantly in Volkswagen Polo Cup China where he sealed the championship title in 2010. In 2012, he finished second overall in Volkswagen Scirocco-R Cup China and clinched the title of Best Chinese Driver in the process.
Yuan’s impressive motorsport profile also underlines his experience in racing single seaters. He has taken part in Formula Pilota China, Formula Renault Asia and has been actively competing in Formula Masters for the past three seasons. Moreover, the SRA alumna was also part of Asian Le Mans Series’ winning LMP2 team at Sepang International Circuit last year.
“It’s such an honor to be part of a strong team in this highly competitive platform. I’m looking forward to meet my teammates and start working with the entire team this week. The last three events of Formula Masters will surely be interesting and I’m hoping to contribute more championship points in the forthcoming rounds in Kuala Lumpur, Zhuhai and Shanghai,” Yuan Bo said.
KCMG Deputy Managing Director John O’Hara for his part said, “We are happy to welcome Bo to the team and we are looking forward to working with him in Kuala Lumpur, Zhuhai and Shanghai. The team is positive that Yuan, together with Nicholas, Martin, Jeffrey and Sean, can be very competitive during the final three events of the season.”
