Honda are delighted to announce that Tiago Monteiro will make his long-awaited return to motor racing at the next round of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup at Suzuka, Japan.
The 42-year-old Portuguese will drive the Boutsen Ginion Racing Honda Civic Type R TCR that has been raced by Benjamin Lessennes and Ma Qinghua in his absence this year.
Tiago has undergone an intense period of recovery since sustaining head and neck injuries in a testing incident in September 2017 and is now ready to resume competition at the same circuit at which he made his Honda debut in World Touring Cars in 2012.
On Doctors’ advice, he will not race at the season-ending WTCR Race of Macau. He will, however, attend the event in an advisory capacity.
