Buriram, October 28, 2020 – After scooping the entire haul of Thailand Super Series GT3 titles in 2019, B-Quik Absolute Racing will be back on track this weekend as the 2020 season finally gets underway at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram. Leading their Thailand Supercar GT3 driver and team title defence are Audi Sport Asia driver and reigning series champion Sandy Stuvik and Daniel Bilski, who took the Am title last season with Henk Kiks. Joining Kiks in the second Audi R8 LMS GT3 as he embarks upon his Am title defence will be team newcomer Philip Massoud.
“B-Quik Absolute Racing is one of the leading Audi teams in the region and they’ve once more put together a strong line-up for their triple GT3 title defence,” said Alexander Blackie, Manager of Audi Sport customer racing Asia. “After a long wait, this will be Sandy Stuvik’s first race as an Audi Sport Asia driver, and with Daniel Bilski he has a multiple-title winning Am partner. Henk Kiks and Philip Massoud form a well-balanced Am squad with Henk’s years of experience with the Audi R8 LMS sure to be invaluable to Philip on his Audi debut.”
Thai driver Stuvik, 25, was appointed an Audi Sport Asia driver earlier this season after an impressive debut year with the four rings in 2019, which saw him clinch the Thailand Supercar GT3 title in dramatic fashion in the final round. Teammate Bilski, meanwhile, enjoyed one of his finest seasons in 2019 alongside team boss Kiks. The duo won the Thailand Supercar GT3 Am title after finishing third in the overall Supercar standings and also placed in the top three in the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia GT3 Am class after taking two category wins out of four races.
The passion and commitment of team owner and driver Kiks has seen his B-Quik Racing outfit become one of the brightest lights in GT competition in the region, and the more recent ramp up of the team’s collaboration with multiple championship-winning Absolute Racing is an exciting one.
Massoud partners with Kiks for the opening round this weekend, making his GT3 competition debut in the two, one-hour races at the FIA Grade I, 4.554km Thai circuit. After a two-year hiatus from racing, the 2018 Thailand Super Series TA2 Thailand champion has been enticed back to the track by the prospect of driving the Audi R8 LMS GT3 with one of Asia’s most competitive teams.
Two 15-minute qualifying sessions get underway on Saturday October 31 at 9:50, with the lights going green on race one at 16:00. Race two then kicks off at 14:55 on Sunday November 1 (all times UTC +7).
