TSS: B-Quik Racing ready for the challenge of Thailand Super Series

B-Quik Racing Press Release

B-Quik Racing is ready for the challenge of the new season in Thailand Super Series. The team has ambitious objectives for 2015 and will run two cars in the Super Car Class 2-GTM for Henk J. Kiks (#26 Audi R8 LMS Cup) and Daniel Bilski (#27 Porsche 997 GT3 Cup).

Thailand Super Series, the premier domestic motorsport championship, enters its third season this year and certainly the most hotly competitive category on the bumper programme will be Super Car Class 2-GTM with close to two dozen cars expected to fight it out over four rounds and nine races.

The season starts with two consecutive rounds at Chang International Circuit in Buriram, in May and July respectively, before a visit to the historic home of Thai motorsport, Bira International Circuit, in September, and then winding to a conclusion on the iconic Bangsaen Street Circuit two months later.

Super Car Class 2-GTM is really the place to be this year and the category will see a mouthwatering array of top drivers behind the wheel of cutting-edge racing machines from brands including Porsche, Ferrari, Audi, Lamborghini, Toyota and Holden.

B-Quik Racing will enter its Audi R8 LMS Cup and Porsche 997 GT3 Cup in this category and will be looking to make a very strong impact in the fight for the Drivers’ and Teams’ championships.

Team Leader Henk will be back for a second season in the Audi R8 LMS Cup and will be hoping to capitalise on the pace that the car demonstrated during last year’s TSS round in Buriram when Henk was able to lead the races and post fastest laps, although issues eventually kept him off the podium. Those performances provide a robust platform for the Dutchman to build on at the season opener next weekend and the team will be hoping that the data they acquired last year with the car will get them out of the blocks fast.

Henk J. Kiks (#26 Audi R8 LMS Cup, Super Car Class 2-GTM): “The team is now really getting into the swing of things for the upcoming season. We have run two races so far this year, in the Audi Cup in Zhuhai with an R8 and in Asia Classic Car in Sepang with the 944 and E30, but now the focus has shifted to TSS and the first two races in Buriram. It's a slightly hectic period as after Sepang the whole crew flew to Thailand to start preparing the R8 and the 997 for Buriram. B-Quik Racing is going seriously into the season, with two cars on the grid for the full year in Class 2 and the target is simple, to win the Drivers’ and Teams’ championships. In order to do that the preparations must be flawless and large stocks have been delivered of spares and consumables and the boys have learned a lot more already this year from Zhuhai and Sepang. We have extra planning and preparation to do also as after Buriram the team will immediately move to Korea for the next round of the Audi R8 Cup.”

Round 1 (Race 1 & 2) of Thailand Super Series 2015 takes place at Chang International Circuit, Buriram on 9-10 May.
