Australian squad AMAC Motorsport will enter a full season of the Blancpain GT Series Asia in 2018.

The team, which has been an Australian GT regular since 2010, will compete the SRO run series with their Lamborghini Huracan GT3, which has seen appearances on local soil throughout the 2017 Australian GT season.

Team owner, Andrew Macpherson will share the car with Benjamin Porter, who has previously raced with the squad in the Bathurst 12 Hour.

AMAC will also become the first ever Australian team to enter Blancpain GT Asia, which ventures into it’s second season next year with a total of six rounds across the continent.

“AMAC Motorsport is looking forward to an exciting 2018 season racing our Lamborghini Huracan at the six best circuits in Asia,” said Macpherson, who finished eighth in the Australian Endurance Championship standings this year alongside co-driver, Brad Shiels.

“SRO has built a great series with excellent media coverage that attracts large Asian and worldwide audiences. We can’t wait to represent Australia on the international stage.”

Team’s manager, Steve Bugatto says the squad is eager to tackle the world class circuits the series has to offer, beginning with the opening round at Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit.

“AMAC Motorsport are excited to be a part of Blancpain GT Series Asia’s 2018 season,” he added.

“Bringing our Lamborghini Huracan from Australia to the best tracks Asia has to offer, and running with the best teams from across the continent, represents a fantastic opportunity to experience a new motorsport environment.

“Both our drivers, Andrew and Ben, are eager for the 2018 season to begin at Sepang in April.”

After Sepang, the series visits circuits in Thailand and Japan, before finishing the year off in China at the Zhejiang Circuit.
