Blancpain GT Series Asia’s GT4 category continues to gather pace following the news that Taiwan Top Speed Racing will enter a Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR in all of this season’s six rounds.
The team, established in 2011, is well known across the region for its myriad GT racing programmes, which include the likes of GT Asia Series, Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia, and Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific.
Its all-Am Blancpain GT Series Asia line up comprises two drivers already familiar with the team but for whom this season will be their first campaigning GT4 machinery: Keo Chang and Jeremy Wang.
Chang’s CV includes a season spent contesting GT Asia’s GTM class before winning the Taiwan Speed Festival’s GT-N crown two years ago. Meanwhile, co-driver Wang was a title rival during that same 2015 campaign before eventually finishing third, while his most recent experience aboard a Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia-spec Lamborghini Huracan should stand him in good stead for the season ahead.
Taiwan Top Speed Racing is the latest team to commit to the first pan-Asia GT4 series, which builds on the same successful formula and Balance of Performance developed by championship organiser, SRO, in Europe, the US and Australia.
The opening round of 2017’s inaugural Blancpain GT Series Asia season kicks off at Sepang in Malaysia on April 8/9.
