GT Asia Series Adjusts Silver-Silver Pairings for 2017
Following on from the recent announcement of a new category in 2017 dedicated to amateur drivers, Motorsport Asia Limited, the promoter of the successful GT Asia Series, has released a further initiative aimed at the amateur drivers in the outright GT3 category.
Silver-Silver driver pairings first appeared in 2015 against the traditional Pro-Am style pairings and they proved to be the most competitive driver line-ups, claiming the top four positions in the 2015 championship.
Motorsport Asia revealed that the more amateur Silver-Silver combinations should expect an additional compensation time added to their compulsory pit stops – just as they experienced in season 2016 – whilst the more experienced Silver-Silver combinations could expect that same time penalty, together with additional weight.
The GT Asia Series is sanctioned by the FIA as an International Series and is clearly recognised as the Region’s leading GT Championship.
