TCR International - DUBAI, UAE: Last race for 2017
As the 2017 season comes to a close, it’s time to celebrate the numerous podiums and reasons to celebrate together after a successful racing year:
• TCR Benelux Driver Champion 2017
• 3rd place in Blancpain GT Sports Club
• Victory in Thailand at the TCR International Series
• A lot of work by everyone, but also emotion and great moments on track
The team at Boutsen Ginion Racing now turns their focus towards the 2018 season.

Course 1: P14
Course 2: P13
Aurelien Panis: “The TCR season is now over! Big thanks to my team Boutsen Ginion, Honda, all my partners and to everyone; thanks for your support.”
The last round of the TCR International Series has just taken place in sunny Dubai.
This meeting was not as successful as the round in Thailand for team driver Aurelien Panis at the wheel of the Honda TCR #28, mainly due to a lack of turbo power during the practice and qualifying sessions.
Race 1: Aurelien Panis had to start back on grid 18, but managed to come through the field up to P11. Unfortunately, he was hit by another competitor and finished in P14.
Race 2: Once again, starting on P18 and not having the luck again, was forced to retire on during the first lap in P13 with a broken splitter.
