Background

Phoenix Racing is a name that is synonymous with sportscar racing around the world. After celebrating multiple victories at some of the most prestigious endurance and GT races in the world, the people behind the successful Phoenix Racing team decided to expand their horizons.

The idea of Phoenix Racing Asia slowly began to materialise through the 2015 season. The efforts to launch and Asia-based team fell into place after the team took a one-two at the 2015 12 Hours of Sepang. For all those present to witness this famous victory, it was clear that there was plenty of potential on the Asian motorsport scene for Phoenix Racing Asia to tap into.

The company was founded in 2016 after months of preparations and meetings and clearing away all the legal obstacles. Once the office was set up in Hong Kong, it was time to explore the Asian racing scene and pinpoint the areas that Phoenix Racing Asia could focus on.

It didn’t take long for the team to start chalking up its first victories: The first race win came in the third round of the 2016 GT Asia season at Buriram in Thailand and was quickly followed by wins two and three later that season at Okayama and Shanghai. Elsewhere, Phoenix Racing Asia also entered an impressive five cars in the Audi R8 LMS Cup in the 2016 season and saw driver Alex Yoong take the title.

As the 2016 season progress, it was clear that the team would need to move forward to maintain its impressive on-track results. It was decided to set up a workshop somewhere in Asia, and the Phoenix Racing Asia team went about scouting different locations. They eventually opted for Sepang in Malaysia and set about constructing a hub for all of its Blancpain GT Series Asia, Asian Le Mans Series and GT Asia activities. The workshop featured a large garage area to work on the cars, meeting rooms for the management team and much more besides.

By the time the 2017 season came along, Phoenix Racing had transformed into a worldwide enterprise. With locations in Meuspath, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Japan, the logistical challenges presented by the team’s structure were enormous. A great deal of time and effort was spent developing and refining a smart logistical concept to rise to this challenge.
