It will be the first time that Anthony has raced at Macau, having been injured in a crash on the street circuit during the qualifying session for the 2001 F3 Grand Prix. However, he is does not feel that this will affect him for this race.

"I am really pleased that Honda and JAS Motorsport have invited me to take part in this touring car race." he said. "I usually drive a Honda Civic Type-R road car, which is a great car, so I am looking forward to driving the Touring Car."

"It will be a tough event and it will be strange to go back to Macau but at least I know the circuit. After spending so much time in an F1 car it will be good to try something different."
