Bangkok--17 Mar--Stuvik Racing Project

Thai racing driver Sandy Kraokaew Stuvik will compete in the inaugural season of Blancpain Sprint Series Asia in a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 run by Italian racing team Vincenzo Sospiri Racing. Vincenzo Sospiri was a former F1 driver and has recruited Sandy to partner Croatian driver Martin Kodric in the team's assault on the Blancpain Asia title.

This will see Sandy's first season in a GT3 car, deciding to branch out from open-wheel racing which he has competed in since 2010. The team has done comprehensive testing of the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 in Italy to ensure that it is fine tuned before the official tests in Sepang, Malaysia.

The first race of the season will take place on the Sepang Circuit from the 7th-9th April. Sandy feels confident that he and the team can produce good results throughout the season.

"I'm excited to be joining Vincenzo Sospiri Racing for my first year in GTs. We have completed a few days of testing, and have another test scheduled in Imola in a week's time. My teammate has experience in the Huracan Supertrofeo and I'm sure that together we will be able to fight for podiums this season. The Blancpain Asia grid is shaping up to be very competitive with many professional drivers and teams, it will be interesting to see how the season unfolds. Our goal is to fight for the title!", Sandy says.

Sandy Kraokaew Stuvik is supported by The Pizza Company, Singha Corporation, Dacon Inspection Services, Thai Airways, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Sports Authority of Thailand, and the Royal Automobile Association of Thailand.
