As first revealed by Sportscar365 in December, FFF Racing Team by ACM will enter three McLaren 650S GT3s in Asia.

The team, set up by Fu Songyang and Andrea Caldarelli, has lodged a trio of entries for the GT Asia Series, while also confirming plans to compete in the Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi and the Sepang 12 Hours in December.

Vitanotonio Liuzzi, Hiroshi Hamaguchi, Max Wiser, Jiang Xing, Fu Songyang and team project leader Andrea Caldarelli have been confirmed as drivers for the 2015 season.

“I’m really excited about this new adventure. Being part of the GT Asia is a great opportunity for our team, which is looking to be a competrtive top team for the next few years,” Songyang said.

“It’s always been my dream to have a professional racing team, and thanks to the support of Andrea Caldarelli I think we can be strong.

“Our goal is to win the championship, but we are also looking to attend some of the most important Endurance races in 2015 and compete at the front.”

“I’m sure that having the chance to work with a professional constructor such as McLaren GT is the best possible way to start a new racing endeavor,” Caldarelli added.

“Thanks to McLaren GT, we can have a technical package that will see the team be highly competitive, not just in Asia but worldwide.

“We want to fight for the title in the GT Asia, but we are also looking to collect some silverware in the 2015 endurance winter season.”
