Team Absolute racing is proud to announce the signing of Chinese-American driver Brian Wong for the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2011.

 

Wong, a native of Newport Beach, California, is a fifth generation Chinese American and a lifelong motorsports enthusiast.

At 17, Wong was the youngest to receive his Porsche racing license and progress again up the competition ladder. His racing ability was recognized in 2010 by Porsche Motorsports with an invitation, as one of 12 young race drivers in the world, to Germany and Italy for a driver assessment.

In 2010 Wong raced in the prestigious and competitive American Le Mans Series, the IMSA Challenge Series, the Porsche SuperCup series in Europe (companion race to the F1 races) and the NASCAR West.

Throughout his career, Wong has raced upwards of 35 events a year, while attending school at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts and is currently on a one year break to pursue his racing career. 

“I am thrilled to be racing with the team from Absolute Racing this season and the new challenge that the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia provides. I look forward to competing and continuing their championship tradition” said Wong of the partnership.

Team Director, Fabien Fior, “We are very excited to partner with Brian this season. We are aiming at nothing but winning and I expect we can achieve that with Brian”.

What started as a fun hobby has quickly turned into a professional dream. Having traveled and raced in Europe, Canada, America, and China, Wong has gained a wealth of experience in racing and looks to continue his career in Asia.

Wong’s personal sponsors include international brands, Quiksilver, Dryer’s Grand Ice Cream and Eibach Springs. 

For 2011 Wong has also confirmed entries for 2 others series - the American Le Mans Series and NASCAR.
