Bas Schothorst: "It's great to join TDS together with the rest of the McGregor team! I did a test with them in Barcelona directly after last season. I was impressed by the dedication and the professional way of working of the team. With the Mégane Eurocup the World Series by Renault creates a great platform for competitive racing. I learnt a lot last year in this series and I'm confident that we can compete for the title this year. I'm really looking forward to the start of the season!"
