The 2016 GT Asia Series comes to it’s dramatic conclusion in Shanghai on 19-20 October with news that Shang Peng Gao Ke will be joining the Series as the official event title sponsor – the event will now be known as the ‘GT Asia Series Shang Peng Race of Shanghai’.

Shang Peng Gao Ke is a cross-border e-commerce marketing company and their involvement will allow thousands of Shang Peng associates to enjoy the drama and emotion of Asia’s leading GT championship, as six teams battle for the right to become the 2016 Series champions.

Shang Peng associates will also have the opportunity to cheer on their very own team!

For the Series final Craft-Bamboo Racing’s Frank Yu and Richard Lyons will wear the colours of Shang Peng on their #88 Porsche GT3 R, providing a great focal point for the fans, and thanks to a striking new livery, the car will be easy to identify and follow with its angular red and white theme that draws inspiration from the Shang Peng corporate colours.

As title sponsor of this epic season finale, Shang Peng will enjoy fantastic brand exposure around the race track and grandstand sections. Shang Peng race queens will feature in the paddock, pit lane and on the grid where they will be sure to draw a crowd of both fans and media. A large hospitality tent will also be present to allow visitors to personally connect with Shang Peng and their drivers and collect Shang Peng team memorabilia. They can also get their photos taken with the official Shang Peng race queens as a reminder of what will be an outstanding conclusion to the 2016 season.

And in fantastic news for the category, Fox Sports Asia will broadcast both races live to millions of viewers throughout the Asian region as the races unfold, and for those that miss it with mid-week commitments, they will replay both races in full on the Sunday immediately following the event (check http://tv.foxsportsasia.com/ for scheduled times). In China, Star Sports will also broadcast both races live, whilst China’s popular online network LeTv will also host both races live, the network one of 27-online platforms that saw the fifth event of the season at Shanghai (19-21 August) broadcast to more than 6.3-million viewers across China.

Of course, both races will also be streamed live online through www.gtasiaseries.com
