CMRT Eurasia and Aston Martin Commit to GT Asia
Reigning Team’s champions Absolute Racing were the first to announce that they would be returning, looking to add the driver’s title to their consecutive victories in the team’s race, but they will have some stiff competition coming from a team with significant past experience in GT Asia (2010 team’s champion), with a marque that has established itself as a powerful force in past seasons – Aston Martin.
CMRT Eurasia already have one confirmed entry in GT Asia for James Cai and Kenneth Lim and they have confirmed that they are looking to secure a second Aston Martin Vantage GT3 for the 2017 Series which kicks off in Malaysia on 10-12 March.
The 2017 season gets underway in early March, with a two-day official test at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia on 7-8 March, followed by the first two rounds of the season at the same venue on 10-12 March.
The GT Asia Series is sanctioned by the FIA as an International Series and is clearly recognised as the Region’s leading GT Championship. It is solely managed and promoted by Motorsport Asia Ltd and is backed by Michelin, KW Automotive, Motul and Race Room.
