IRVINE, Calif., April 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Interush International LLC, a leading supplier of digital and cloud based software applications for the Asian market, announced that it will be the primary sponsor of the Craft-Bamboo Aston Martin Race Team’s Vantage GT3 at the 2015 GT Asia Series. Interush has been teaming up with the Craft-Bamboo Racing team since 2012 and is proud to join forces with them once again with this classic marque for the upcoming race season. The #88 Aston Martin livery features the iconic LeMans light blue base color, with accents of classic British Racing Green in a unique combination within this historic Aston Martin racing legacy. Because the number eight is considered good luck in Asia, the #88 Aston Martin is sure to bring double fortune to the team as well!
The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 has 600bhp powered by a 6 liter V12 lightweight engine. The racing chassis is made of bonded aluminum to create a very light, yet stiff structure, with a shorter wheelbase and lower engine position to enhance both handling and performance.
The GT Asia Series is in its sixth season and one of the four FIA-sanctioned race series that is part of the Asian Festival of Speed (AFOS). The GT Asia series will start on May 15-17 on the South Korean peninsula and include 11 races across five countries, with the series’ first three-hour endurance race to be held at the Sepang International Circuit in September.
Driving the spirited #88 Aston Martin will be the combination of Frank Yu of Hong Kong and Richard Lyons from Northern Ireland. Frank Yu brings great experience driving both the Vantage GT3 and Asian race circuits with him, while Richard Lyons is a proven championship driver of GT sports car racing. Lyons and Yu victoriously claimed a second place finish together in last year’s GT Asia Series race in Autopolis, Japan and look forward to return to winning performance in this year’s GT Asia Series.
"At Interush, we understand that it takes a full team effort to achieve great success," said Martin Matthews, CEO of Interush. "However, this also has to start with world-class technology and the hands-on leadership, determination and skills to become a true champion. This is certainly what we expect Richard Lyons and Frank Yu will each provide driving this amazing #88 Aston Martin Vantage GT3!"
