Buriram, November 11, 2020 – B-Quik Absolute Racing’s pair of Audi R8 LMS squads remain in the hunt for Thailand Super Series GT3 titles on three fronts. A robust return to the race track following an extended, pandemic-enforced hiatus, saw the reigning Thailand Super Series triple-champions claim a solid haul of championship points and podium finishes at the season opening weekend. The team's Pro-Am pairing of Audi Sport Asia driver Sandy Stuvik and Daniel Bilski; and Am-class duo of team boss Henk Kiks and Philip Massoud carry that momentum into the second and final fixture of the compact 2020 season. The two Audi R8 LMS squads will be gunning for three GT3 titles - Overall, Am and Team – at the Chang International Circuit on November 13-15.
“B-Quik Absolute Racing got through a challenging opening weekend with solid points on the board and remain firmly in the title hunts,” said Alexander Blackie, Manager of Audi Sport customer racing Asia. “The nature of this extremely compact season means that one great weekend on track could very well be decisive. B-Quik Absolute Racing have the experience, passion and ability to make it happen at the finale - we wish the whole team the very best of luck!”
The two-stop, four-round 2020 season reaches its climax this weekend, once again at the FIA Grade 1 Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Northeast Thailand, with two, one-hour races. The pair of B-Quik Absolute Racing Audi R8 LMS GT3s will take on a strong, multi marque field on the deceptively tricky 4.554km track. Heading into the title-decider Stuvik and Bilski sit third on the overall GT3 leaderboard on 28 points, 22 points off top spot with 50 points on offer over the weekend. Kiks and Massoud lie second in the race for the Am title on 36 points, just 14 away from class lead. B-Quik Absolute Racing have a second consecutive Team title within reach, currently sitting second in the standings on 44 points, 30 from the lead with 86 points up for grabs at the finale.
The Thailand Super Series finale begins on Thursday, November 12, with an opening official practice, followed by two further practice sessions on Friday. Qualifying will require faultless team work with two 15-minute qualifying sessions separated by just ten minutes on Saturday morning, followed by round three at 16:40. The season-closing round four gets underway at 16:30 on Sunday, November 15 (all times UTC+7).
