iRACE.WIN ANNOUNCE BLANCPAIN GT SERIES ASIA DEBUT WITH MERCEDES-AMG

A new team, iRace.Win, will give Mercedes-AMG its Blancpain GT Series Asia GT4 class debut this year after the team confirmed its full-season entry today.

The American company established its race team earlier this year and will begin its campaign at Sepang in Malaysia next weekend with Blancpain GT Series Asia’s opening round of the season.

The team has added further variety to the championship’s growing GT4 class by selecting the Mercedes-AMG GT, which is available to customers for the first time this year. The car, powered by a four-litre V8 engine, will compete against entries from BMW, McLaren and Porsche.

iRace.Win’s driver line-up also packs plenty of experience courtesy of Ringo Chong and Akihiro Asai. Chong, from Singapore, finished fourth in last year’s GT4 driver standings and won the season’s final race at Zhejiang, while Japanese co-driver Asai makes his series debut at Sepang after previously contesting the likes of Asian Le Mans Series, GT Asia and the Thai Super Series.

Sepang hosts the first of this year’s six rounds on April 14/15.
