> Gregory Teo and David Tjiptobiantoro also feature in full-season Pro-Am entry
T2 Motorsports will make its Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia comeback this season after confirming a full-season campaign with its distinctive blue and red Ferrari 488 GT3.
The Singaporean squad last competed in 2017 when David Tjiptobiantoro and Gregory Teo finished sixth in the Am Cup class standings.
Both again feature this year as part of a Pro-Am line-up that sees ex Formula 1 driver Rio Haryanto contesting all six rounds. Tjiptobiantoro joins the Indonesian at Sepang, Buriram, Fuji and Yeongam while Teo will race at Suzuka and Shanghai.
T2’s Ferrari joins Audi, BMW, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche on the list of manufacturers confirmed for 2019. Further entries will be announced in the coming weeks ahead of the opening round in April.
“We are excited to be returning to Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia in 2019,” said Teo, who will split his driving duties with managing the team. “We really enjoyed our first season in the championship when it was still establishing itself as Asia’s leading GT series and then watched on from a distance last year when it really made its mark. That’s why we’re back in 2019 with a renewed programme and driver line-up that’s capable of scoring victories. Collectively, the package looks very promising indeed.”
Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia stages its opening round at Sepang in Malaysia on April 6/7.
