TSS: BQRacing testing Audi R8 LMS at Sepang

By Johan Laubscher

The Sepang circuit in Malaysia saw the BQRacing team conducting their first track tests of their newly acquired Audi R8 LMS. The car was still in its "Audi ultra" livery from the Audi R8 LMS Cup and it will soon be receiving its new yellow B-Quik livery.

The team is currently preparing for a two-car entry in the 2014 Thailand Super Series. BQRacing acquired their first Audi R8 LMS Cup car a few weeks ago and they also announced that they will be upping their team to two cars for the 2014 season.

The Thailand Super Series (TSS) has a number of very potent GT3 race cars competing in the series and Audi R8 LMS cars will be debuting on the grid this season.

The team’s two cars will be driven by Khun Prantarit Nerngchamnong, alongside team leader, Khun Henk J. Kiks. They will be competing in Super Car Class 2-GTM.

The yellow livery designs of the #22 and #26 Audi R8 LMS cars from BQRacing have also been revealed in recent weeks (pictured above and below).

The 2014 Thailand Super Series gets underway at Sepang in Malaysia, 10-11 May.
