Nicolas Lapierre’s will head to China next week with FIA World Touring Car Championship points in the bag following his impressive debut in Japan earlier this month.

Lapierre, who will complete the 2015 WTCC season with LADA Sport Rosneft, placed P8 in the second JVC KENWOOD WTCC Race of Japan to earn four championship points.

“I think I did okay,” said the Frenchman afterwards. “I am happy to score some points and I’m learning all the time and could have pushed harder earlier in the races. Getting to understand the style of racing and the characteristics of the Vesta and the way the tyres work will take a while but I enjoyed it.”

Shanghai International Circuit hosts ROSNEFT WTCC Race of China from 25-27 September.

The 2017 FIA World Touring Car Championship season heads to Qatar next for a thrilling showdown with three prestigious titles still up for grabs.

Rob Huff made history by winning for a record-breaking ninth time around the Guia street track as he dominated a wet Main Race at FIA WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau while Norbert Michelisz cut Thed Björk’s title lead to 6.5 points with two races left in Qatar next month.
