Motorsport Asia Acquires Sole Ownership of GT Asia
With every passing year the GT Asia Series continues to gain great momentum. Season 2015 saw the most competitive field on record, with a string of factory-supported teams, some of the world’s best GT3 drivers and a list of events on some of Asia’s leading circuits, but for Motorsport Asia, 2016 will represent a great new opportunity after taking sole ownership of the category late last season.
“For 2016 Motorsport Asia Limited has the opportunity to really take GT Asia to new heights after working in a partnership with Supercar Club Hong Kong since the Series first began,” David Sonenscher, the CEO of Motorsport Asia confirmed.
“There’s no doubt that GT3 competition is emerging as the most important category of racing around the world. It has great manufacturer support, it is a category that is both interesting and achievable for amateur drivers, it competes on all the best circuits in the world, and it is fast becoming a fan favourite.”
