Foster Joins HubAuto Corsa and Leo Ye for Blancpain GT Series Asia
HubAuto Corsa has confirmed its driver line-up for this year’s Blancpain GT Series Asia campaign after announcing that Morris Chen and Tim Slade, as well as Nick Foster and Leo Ye Hongli, will race a pair of Ferrari 488 GT3s.
The team – Taiwan’s first-ever full-season Blancpain GT Series Asia entry – originally revealed its GT3 plans in early February and has now added further details following a one-off appearance at Shanghai last season.
2018 sees the team switch from Porsche to Ferrari, with two 488 GT3s scheduled to tackle all six rounds.
The team’s Silver Cup-entered Ferrari features two drivers with existing Blancpain GT Series Asia experience. 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup champion Nick Foster starred during his part-season with Craft-Bamboo Racing in 2017 thanks to a pole position and two podiums from six races, while his Chinese team-mate Leo Ye Hongli set fastest lap of the race during HubAuto’s Blancpain GT Series Asia debut at Shanghai in 2017.
The opening round of this year’s six-round, 12-race campaign begins at Sepang in Malaysia this weekend (April 14/15) before the series travels to Thailand, Japan and China.
