Two-time Blancpain GT Series Asia race winners Phoenix Racing Asia have confirmed at least one full-season Audi R8 LMS GT3 entry for 2018.
The Hong Kong-based squad finished third in 2017’s GT3 Drivers’ and Teams’ standings, while its #5 line-up comprising Marchy Lee and Shaun Thong were also crowned Silver Cup champions after they out-performed the series’ other all-professional crews.
Phoenix is currently working on its options to enter a second Audi, just as it did in 2017, while its driver line-up also remains under wraps for the time being.

Regardless of its final combinations, team principal Marchy Lee is confident that Phoenix will be fighting at the front once again this year.
“The team enjoyed a great season in 2017 and, with a bit more luck, might have won the GT3 Drivers’ title at the final round, so it’s definitely a case of unfinished business this time,” he said. “The driver line-ups will depend on whether we enter a second car but, either way, I’m confident we have the potential to fight for victories. Winning the Silver Cup was a fantastic achievement against so many quality entries but this year our sights are firmly set on claiming the overall GT3 Drivers’ crown.”
