Paul Poon Tak-Chun (traditional Chinese: 潘德俊) (born 12.03.1971) is a racing driver from Hong Kong, China. He is the current Hong Kong Touring Car Championship champion. He drives a Honda Civic EP3 for China Dragon Racing.[1]

Paul Poon is also the winner of the two previous editions of the CTM Cup (also known as Macau Cup) in 2006 and 2007, a race organized for the leading Asian touring car drivers.[2]

In 2003, Paul Poon entered the international Macau Guia race for Super Production cars, using a car built by Mardi Gras Motorsport in the United Kingdom,[3] as the Hong Kong Touring Car Championship winner. He finished 7th, the highest finishing position for a Hong Kong driver in that race.[4]

In 2004, Paul Poon entered the Macau Guia race again. He did not finish in either Race 1 or 2.[5]

For 2005, Paul Poon hired a BMW 320i to take part in the World Touring Car Championship finale in Macau, but he failed to qualify for the race.[6]

In 2008, Paul attempted to complete a hat-trick of CTM Macau Cup victories, after winning the Hong Kong Touring Car Championship again. But he failed to win.

In 2012, Paul Poon led a China Dragon Racing 1-2 in qualifying for the CTM Macau Touring Car Cup, leading team-mate and 2011 race winner Samson Fung in the qualifying session.[9] He then won the 2012 CTM Macau Touring Car Cup race, fighting off the advances of Team Pro Spec driver Andy Yan.[10]
