Current Formula Masters champion Taylor Cockerton heads to Malaysia for a test with the KCMG team at the Sepang International Circuit on 16 January,2018. The one-day test in an Audi R8 LMS Cup car is part of the prize for winning the 2017 drivers title which he secured at the final round in China.

A successful test could offer Cockerton options for continuing his racing in Asia. These include the Blancpain GT Series Asia, a multi-class GT championship predominately catering for GT3 and GT4 cars over six race weekends and the 11 round one-make Audi R8 LMS Cup series.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
