The route to Macau

The last round of FIA WTCC 2005 is going to be held the 20th of November in Macau, the city circuit located in China. All the teams are waiting this big event full of history and with one of the highest on-site attendences of the whole World Championship.

JAS Motorsport put all its effort and dedication in these days to be back racing with the two Honda Accord Super 2000, one driven by Adriano "Ado" De Micheli from Scuderia Niosi (USA) who will be joined by Simon Harrison (UK). In this occasion the cars will have the new livery of the Noble Group who will be the sponsor of JAS for the Guia race.

There are big expectations for JAS Motorsport in consideration of the excellent performance of Ado in the last race of Valencia, where he was comfortably fighting for the 5th position before being unceremoniously pushed out by a SEAT. Also Simon Harrison is expected to be highly competitive in Macau thanks to his familiarity with the city-track and the excellent test session in Valencia.

"We'll settle for nothing but the best in Macau" said Alessandro Mariani, team manager of JAS "The cars are in great conditions and the last results achieved in the championship are the proof. The experience and the potential of Harrison will be very helpful to be competitive, we are ready to be fighting among work drivers."

"Qualifying is the key" Ado said "because passing is very hard in Macau and starting from a good position will be important."

During the RPMe event which will take part in the circuit of Monza the 3rd to the 6th November JAS Motorport will make a shakedown of the two cars also to allow to improve the confidence of the British driver with the Accord S2000 and the new tires, and right afterwards both cars will be flying to the Guia race.

During the whole week the Team will continue the deevlopmentng of their Accord Euro R Super 2000 ENDURANCE, an evolution version of the WTCC which has already raced at the prestigious Nurburgring 24 hours and that is now available to all endurance-racing enthusiasts.
