Dilango Racing Confirms Nissan Entries for GT4 Asia Cup

Dilango Racing have confirmed two Nissan 350Z's for the newly launched GT4 Asia Cup.

The cars, backed by Nismo engineering, were converted from the Nismo 380RS to comply with the GT4 Asia Cup regulations.

Unfortunately, the cars, which were scheduled to arrive for this weekend were delayed due to a last minute overbooking problem with the airfreight. The cars were in Fuji, Japan for a shakedown and were unable to be flown in on time.

Malagamuwa although disappointed at not being able to race in the Nissan, will still be competing in the first two rounds in an Aston Martin N24.

"Ringo Chong is helping me with the car and if it was not for him I would have lost out on the chance to gain some valuable points this weekend" said a grateful Malagamuwa.

"GT4 is going to be one of the best racing series in Asia, as it is low cost with powerful cars providing some fantastic racing. Our team, Dilango Racing, will be getting technical support from Nismo this year and we will have two race cars, I will be driving one and the second driver will be announced soon. I hope to win the first GT4 Asia Cup Championship." he concluded.

The FIA sanctioned GT4 Asia Cup Series will begin during the Asian Festival Of Speed event on 14-16 May 2010 at the Sepang International Circuit. The series will then be a part of the Super GT event, also in Sepang, for Rounds 3 & 4. The GT4 Asia Cup will be competing at some of the best circuits in Asia including new F1 circuit in Korea, Fuji and Autopolis race tracks in Japan.
