Geely Group Motorsport says it has increased production of Lynk & Co 03 TCR cars ahead of the new season, as the Chinese brand prepares to offer the car to customers for the first time in 2020.

Order books were first opened in September 2019, with the first cars being delivered to Geely’s World Touring Car Cup partner Cyan Racing, as well as to customers in China.

Ron Hartvelt, Customer Sport Director of Geely Group Motorsport, says that more cars will be completed for deliveries later this year.

“We are in the process of completing further 2020 cars for deliveries,” said Hartvelt. “Start up delays in deliveries of body shells from China has meant that we have had to reschedule our plans.

“But the support from the team in Hangzhou has been tremendous and we are on track to catch back up.”

The Lynk & Co 03 TCR proved to be immediately successful on its début in WTCR last year, culminating in Cyan Racing securing the Teams’ title at the end of the year.
