Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia 2019

Looks like there going to be another solid season in GT Asia, hopefully they can make a few improvements on the show too.

Calendar is fairly similar to last year with the loss of the two lesser known Chinese circuits, and the addition of Yeongam in South Korea, the former formula one circuit. The old GT Asia Series used to run there and it made for good racing.

Sepang International Circuit - April 6-7
Buriram Chang International Circuit - May 11-12
Suzuka International Circuit - June 22-23
Fuji Speedway - July 6-7
Korea International Circuit - August 3-4
Shanghai International Circuit - September 27-28

Decent entry building slowly, a whopping 4 cars from Absolute spread across two Audis and two Porsches with factory drivers expected from both MFG's.

Craft Bamboo making the big switch from Porsche to AMG, which leaves a question mark over the GruppeM entry.

Phoenix Asia bringing those new gen Bentleys, so we are looking at a slightly more mixed line up in 2019.



Entry List so far:

GT3

Absolute Racing - Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo - Franky Cheng Congfu / Sun Jingzu
Absolute Racing - Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo - TBA / TBA
Absolute Racing - Porsche 911 GT3 R - Yuan Bo / Porsche Factory Driver

AMAC Motorsport - Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo - William Porter / Andrew Macpherson
ARN Racing - Porsche 911 GT3 R - Yuta Kamimura / Hiroaki Nagai
Craft-Bamboo Racing - Mercedes AMG GT3 - TBA / TBA
Craft-Bamboo Racing - Mercedes AMG GT3 - TBA / TBA
Craft-Bamboo Racing - Mercedes AMG GT3 - TBA / TBA (possible)
Phoenix Racing Asia - Bentley Continental GT3 - TBA / TBA
Phoenix Racing Asia - Bentley Continental GT3 - TBA / TBA
Vincenzo Sospiri Racing - Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo - TBA / TBA

GT4

BMW Team Studie - BMW M4 GT4 - Sunako Jukuchou / Takayuki Kinoshita

Craft-Bamboo Racing - Mercedes AMG GT4 - TBA / TBA

The loss of Ningbo International Circuit is really sad. That's one of the most unique modern circuits I've ever seen.

Agreed, it hosted some exciting action in 2018

Zeijhang was very average in comparison

So looks like we will see a Mclaren 720s GT3 in Blancpain Asia, with Keita Sawa driving, team TBC, although Clearwater have run Mclarens in the past...

Announcement due Saturday.

Thats a shame, and puts those two Bentleys in doubt. I wonder if Marchy Lee and co can muster support from elsewhere to run the cars this season.

I imagined Bentley would have been keen to see the new gen cars running somewhere in Asia this year.

Could be a smaller grid this year with KCMG and FFF likely not returning

Great to see Dave Russell back in a GT car for a full season. He’s too good in a GT car to sit on the sidelines except for the Supercar enduros.

Triple Eight Race Engineering join with a pretty stellar lineup.

Otherwise still looking like a slightly thin grid for 2019. Still time, and still some undeclared.
