This weekend, the Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia 2019 kicks off in Sepang, Malaysia. Making a comeback to the circuit are Indonesian racers, David Tjiptobiantoro and Rio Haryanto under Asia’s independent racing team, T2 Motorsports.
The race will be held from Apr. 6 to Sept. 28 at six international circuits in Asia, started from Sepang International Circuit (Malaysia), Chang International Circuit (Thailand), Suzuka International Circuit (Japan), Fuji Speedway (Japan), Korea International Circuit (Korea), and Shanghai International Circuit (China).
Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia 2019 will be more interesting as a new rule applied to avoid domination from one racer. The penalty for the drivers’ exchange in the pit stop will be 15 second additional time for the 1st winner, 10 second for the runner-up, and 5 second for the 3rd winner that will be accumulated with the previous race, so it can be imposed to the next race. Like any other SRO’s race, Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia applies the global regulation Balance of Performance (BoP) as well.
