B-Quik Racing is bringing its biggest and most powerful line up ever to the 12th Bangsaen Grand Prix this week, entering multiple cars in various race categories throughout the action packed event. Known as the “Jewel in the Crown” of Thai motorsport, the Bangsaen GP has seen B-Quik establish a strong track record with a consecutive string of 8 Super Car GTM wins between 2014 and 2016. Leading the line-up will be the #26 Porsche 997 911 GT3-R driven by Henk J Kiks and Peter Kox along with the #27 Audi R8 Ultra GT3 driven by Daniel Bilski and Adderly Fong, racing in Super Car GTM Plus.
Both regular drivers Henk and Daniel will therefore be supported by factory drivers. Besides being an official Acura driver, Peter was also part of B-Quik’s team which won the 2016 Sepang 12 Hours. He joined Henk in Buriram for the GT3-R’s debut in early June, and being familiar with the car enables both drivers to hit the ground running. Adderly is currently part of the Audi Sport customer racing Asia driver pool, and a ‘Pro Mentor’ in the Cup series. Having previously won the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup, he has top notch street circuit experience from racing in the Macau F3 Grand Prix and Macau GT Cup, and is expected to do well at Bangsaen.
Malaysia’s Alif Hamdan will race B-Quik’s newly acquired Porsche 991 911 GT3 Cup in Super Car GTM. Despite this being his first time in Bangsaen, the young driver has also previously raced well at Macau and thrives on street circuits. The #11 Porsche 991 911 GT3 Cup will be shared again by Will Bamber and Jeffrey Chiang. Jeffrey is new to the streets of Bangsaen, while Will pulled off a double victory here during last year’s Porsche Carrera Cup Asia and will undoubtedly be looking to carry that winning form forwards.
Driven by Thomas Raldorf, the #29 Porsche 997 911 GT3 Cup will round out B-Quik’s Super Car GTM squad. As for the Super Car GTC class, Ian Geekie will return with the #18 Porsche 997 911 GT3 Cup; he did well in his first outing and a class podium finish is on the cards this time around.
