The organisers of the GT Asia Series have confirmed a partnership with AUTOart, a die-cast model maker for the 2011 Season. The company will provide selected items from their extensive collection of die cast models and lifestyle products for promotion for the GT Asia Series for the year.

The die-cast model maker will be providing more than two thousand items for promotion and have confirmed to make Special Edition Trophies for the 2011 GT Asia Champions, which will be presented at the final race after the 58th Macau Grand Prix at the Guia International Circuit. 

“We are happy with this partnership as AUTOart is known around the world for their quality die cast scale model cars and also their extensive range of replica model racing cars” said David Sonenscher, CEO of Motorsport Asia.

“The person behind AUTOart, Mr Jimmy Ye, is himself an avid race driver and motorsport fan. The items that he creates are what he would like to own and therefore he makes sure of the standard of craft that is put into each item created” said Paul Yao, CEO of Supercar Club Hong Kong.

AUTOart models are known for their high quality of work, from the meticulous painting detailing steering wheels, brakes and other components to their quality finish. Each piece involves the input of several hundred trained pairs of hands applying their skills throughout the production process.

The company was set up in 1998 and now has the largest range of die-cast 1:18 models with more than a thousand items developed to date.

Livery for AUTOart will appear on all cars for the season beginning from the Asian Festival Of Speed event at the Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia.

The GT Asia series will kick off in Sepang in May during the Asian Festival Of Speed and then for the Super GT in June before heading to Fuji and Suzuka in Japan, the second last weekend will be held either during the Formula 1 in Singapore or at the Super GT in Autopolis before ending at the prestigious Macau Grand Prix at Asia’s oldest street circuit.
