The SRO Motorsports Group has revealed a 29-strong entry list for this weekend’s Blancpain GT Series Asia opener at Sepang.

The list includes ten manufacturers with entries from nine different countries, including the series’ first full-season entries from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Australia. 


Craft-Bamboo Racing, GruppeM, Phoenix Racing Asia and KCMG are amongst the GT3 teams present, while European GT3 regular WRT will run the OD Racing entry.

KCMG will run the brand-new Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 for the first time, one week before RJN Motorsport gives it its European debut at Monza.

Of note, Arrows Racing will campaign a Honda NSX GT3 with the car open to Asian and European customer teams for the first time this year.

Eight GT4 cars will also join the field, with considerably more variety in this year’s grid.

Four manufacturers – Porsche, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG and BMW – are represented in the GT4 field, which is entirely made up of Bronze-rated drivers in the Am Cup.

Pre-season testing will take place today and on Thursday ahead of Free Practice which kicks off on Friday. Two 60-minute races will be held on Saturday and Sunday.
