“It is indeed an honour to once again be associated to a strong brand like Graham London. Their link to the Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team only shows the level of exclusivity and prestige associated with the brand. We would like to extend our thanks to the team at Graham London and DKSH for this continued support for the Series” said David Sonenscher, CEO of Motorsport Asia.

The Series’ best finishers, Champion, Second and Third placed overall along with the Champion in the GT4 Class and the GTM Class will all receive a Graham Special Racing Collection ‘Mercedes GP’ watch each during a special year-end celebration.
