GT Asia Series sees competitive field against Ferrari

The 2015 GT Asia Series promises another memorable season, with some impressive international entries committed to the 11-round championship. As it did 12-months ago, the season will begin in South Korea at the 5.615-kilometre Korea International Circuit.

Reigning champions Clearwater Racing, with lead driver and 20-time GT Asia Series race winner Mok Weng Sun will start favorites, the Singapore-based driver might have lost 2014 partner Keita Sawa to the new Bentley Team Absolute operation this season, however he has found some well credentialed replacements in Ferrari factory WEC drivers James Calado, Toni Vilander and Gianmaria Bruni. Team-mate and 2014 ‘rookie-of-the-year’ Richie Wee will also have solid support, with Craig Baird and Matt Griffin assisting him throughout the season with their two Ferrari 458 once more supported by Ferrari Corse Clienti.

Clearwater and long-time GT Asia Series title rivals Craft-Bamboo Racing will be outright contenders, but keep an eye on Andrea Caldarelli’s three-car factory supported McLaren team. Also in the mix will be the Bentley’s V8 machines, Lamborghini, Porsche and Audi R8.
