Bangkok, Thailand-based B-Quick Racing has announced that it will contest the opening two rounds of the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia in its new Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo.
The entry will be piloted by an Am Cup driver pairing of B-Quik Ltd CEO Henk Kiks and Hong Kong-based business consulting Daniel Bilski. The pair has enjoyed previous racing success as GTC class winners of the 2016 MOTUL 12 Hours of Sepang in 2016.
Established in 2009, B-Quick Racing has raced extensively in the Thailand Super Series and the Asia Classic Car Challenge but this is the team’s first entry into a major continental championship.
B-Quick Racing will be supported for the two rounds, in Malaysia and Thailand, by Absolute Racing, an Audi Asian partner team.
“For sure it’s going to be the biggest test for our team to date,” said Henk Kiks. “But we’re always ready and itching for the toughest challenges! We’re really looking forward to these two events and excited to unlock the potential of the new Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo. It’s certainly going to be a heck of a year for B-Quik. But we want this challenge, we’re prepared and ready to get stuck in.”
Daniel Bilski is also looking forward to the challenge.
“The imminent arrival of B-Quik Racing’s new Audi R8 LMS Evo is a major milestone for the team and a huge way to start the year,” said Bilski. “I’m really looking to learn to the new Evo spec car with Henk, with guidance from our good friends at Absolute Racing.”
The 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge opens at Sepang International Circuit on April 6 – 7 and then moves to Chang International Circuit on May 11 – 12.
