B-Quik Juniors set to double up in TA2 Thailand

B-Quik Juniors set to double up in TA2 Thailand

13.02.2019: B-Quik Racing Co. Ltd. TM (“B-Quik Racing”) is pleased to announce the drivers and racing programme for “Tier 2” of the “B-Quik Junior Programme” this season after just kicking off the year

B-Quik Racing Co. Ltd. TM (“B-Quik Racing”) is pleased to announce the drivers and racing programme for “Tier 2” of the “B-Quik Junior Programme” this season after just kicking off the year with a productive test session at Bira Circuit, which also saw an evolved technical support package being phased in.


 
The B-Quik Junior Programme is an ambitious and unique initiative that gives technical staff from B-Quik Co. Ltd. TM (“B-Quik”) the opportunity to apply to join the team either as a junior racing driver or junior technician. It’s about developing skills and knowledge in the highly competitive arena of motorsport that will benefit staff in the company as they go forward with their careers.



 
The finalists of “Season 1” of the B-Quik Junior Programme “Driver Selection Process”, Narin Naeosathon and Sathaporn Veerachue, will team up together in our #26 Dodge Challenger in “TA2 Thailand” this year.



Last year Narin contested the inaugural season of TA2 Thailand while Sathaporn was nominated as the reserve driver. For the series’ second season it will move to a 1-hour race format with mandatory driver change pitstops and that fits perfectly for our programme as it means these two young drivers can share our Challenger.
 


TA2 Thailand’s racecars feature a ‘spec’ spaceframe chassis with multiple body styles that are equipped with identical 6.2-litre GM V8 engines (producing 525 hp) to keep performance level and costs in check. With 2-way suspension, MoTeC ECU, sequential transmission and many other features it adds up to a pukka racecar that challenges both drivers and teams to unlock its potential.




As such it provides a suitable platform for the “Tier 2” of our Junior Programme for the drivers stepping up from “Tier 1” where they make their first step in motorsport behind the wheel of our roster of Honda Brio and Toyota Vios racecars.


 
The “TA2 Thailand Championship 2019” will take at Malaysia’s Sepang Circuit as well as Thailand’s Chang International Circuit in Buriram (twice), Bira Circuit in Pattaya and the Bangsaen Street Circuit, Chonburi, providing a perfect mix of tracks as Sepang and Buriram are both high speed and flowing world class F1/MotoGP-level circuits, Bira is an historic, tight, twisty and narrow challenge, while Bangsaen is one of the most dramatic street circuits in the arena of motorsport.
 


As part of our programme of new upgrades for 2019 we will partner in TA2 Thailand with Innovation Motorsport, which will provide additional technical and driver support services for our #26 Challenger.



Included in this strategy will be our support for Innovation’s #55 Ford Mustang with Junior Programme technicians joining the team to receive training and to support this car, which will be driven by Mike Freeman along with a team mate to be nominated.



 
The two cars (#26 Challenger & #55 Mustang) will be entered in TA2 Thailand this season as “Innovation B-Quik Racing” which means that as well as forming the core of our Junior Programme our young drivers and technicians will have the extra motivation to be part of a serious challenge for the prestigious “TA2 Thailand Teams’ Championship” title.



 
B-Quik Racing is supported by B-Quik, Michelin, Mobil 1, Bendix, Yuasa, NGK, Liqui Moly, STI and WAC Car Detailing.
