Johor's fastest man, Deon Joubert, recalled for ATCC.

South African Touring Car ace, Deon Joubert, rejoins Team Petronas Primax for Asian Touring Car Championship duties at Johor and Sepang.

Joubert, whose last appearance at the Pasir Gudang circuit in 1999 resulted in a shattering of the outright lap record whilst driving the awesome Petronas Primax Mazda RX-7.

"I'm thrilled to be invited back for the Malaysian events," said Joubert from his hometown of Cape Town, "Johor Bahru brings back great memories and I'm really looking forward to a crack at the world-class Sepang track.

"Johor has a great 'South African' feel. It's tight and daring, and a fast lap really takes your breath away!"

Team Petronas Principal, David Wong, acknowledges the need for someone of Joubert's credentials.

"The ATCC has established itself as the benchmark in the Asian arena," says David Wong, "accordingly we must draw on the full depth of talent available within Team Petronas. Deon has worked intimately with us for over three years now and that experience will be invaluable in the development of our Malaysian drivers for their forthcoming international duties."
