Macau driver Keith Wong will race in the prestigious Porsche Carrera Cup Asia this year, as part of Asia Racing Team.

 

The Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, commonly known as PCCA, takes in some of Asia's most prestigious circuits such as Shanghai, the Singapore’s Marina Bay and Sepang. There will be a total of six race meetings in 2011, with two races per weekend (with exception of Singapore). The season will start in mid April as a support event of the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix.

Although Wong’s name is new to PCCA, the Macanese driver and Adelaide resident, has extensive motor sport experience and raced in Australian GT Championship in the past four seasons with a Porsche 996 GT3 RSR Cup and a Ferrari 360 Challenge. Last season the Macanese driver finished 7th in Australian GT - “GT Challenge” category and 3rd in 2009. He also won South Australia Sports Car Championship 2007 and 2010.

Speaking ahead of the new season, Keith Wong commented, “I am thrilled to be participating in this championship with Asia Racing Team. I am thankful to my sponsors ULX110 Blend Oil and Five Auto Macau for their support and confidence in me. The car is new to me but I am confident I will be competitive in Class B and the test in Sepang will see how my times compared to the other drivers."

Wong‘s car will be engineered by Duarte Alves, reviving a successful partnership. After one year of absence, the experienced Macanese engineer will make a return to the series where he helped Macau’s ace Rodolfo Avila to win two races in 2009.

Alves said “I’m delighted to be back! PCCA is a great championship and to be part again of all Macau line-up is just great. I don’t know Keith yet but we will have time to get known before the first race. I am looking forward to the upcoming season.”

With one and half months ahead of the first official test day, Wong’s teammates will be announced later this winter. “We are building a good team and we hope things go well for us. I am hoping our experience and ability will help our drivers be competitive. We expect to announce our complete line up for 2011 PCCA very soon”, Team Manager Philippe Descombes added.

Asia Racing Team was established in 2003, and raced for the first time in PCCA in 2009. The Macau outfit based in Zhuhai Circuit was the 2010 Drivers and Teams AFR Series winning team. Asia Racing Team’s PCCA return is expected for 12 and 13 March on the Malaysian track of Sepang, for an official two days testing session.
