Gerald Tan to return to 12H of Sepang in a Porsche GT3 Cup

Experienced endurance racer Gerald Tan will be returning to his home track and race at the 12H of Sepang this 28th August – 31st August 2014. The 12H Sepang race has become one of the toughest and most significant 12-hour endurance races in the world and has been attracting a growing number of top teams from Asia and around the world. 2013 saw one of the best grids for many years lined up to do battle for honours in all classes and the event was overall a great success.

Gerald has raced in the 12H of Sepang for 3 consecutive years from 2008 to 2010 in a Honda Integra and has since started his exploration of other endurance races in Dubai and Europe. In 2011, Gerald raced the 24H of Dubai and finished 3rd in class in a BMW 130i. 2012 saw Gerald racing in the 24H of Barcelona in a BMW 130i and the 24H of Silverstone in a Ultima GTR. In Gerald’s first foray into GT racing, he managed to podium the 24H of Barcelona in 2013 in a 997 GT3 Cup S and has since completed the 12H of Mugello in a Mercedes SLS GT3 and the 25H Spa Fun Cup.

“This return to Sepang 12H is a long awaited one where it will be my first time in a GT race car on Sepang. Having raced in Sepang since 2008 and gaining GT racing experience in Europe, I hope to be able to race in my home race and in a GT car. I am really looking forward to racing with Motorsport Services in their 997 GT3 Cup.”

The 12H of Sepang event has been transformed under the new Pacific Project Management (PPM) organising team, inviting many international teams to the race. “We are very happy that two of the biggest and most well-known motorsport and sport TV channels will be broadcasting the 2014 MMER,” says PPM Director Ian Geekie. “Along with other broadcasters soon to be announced, this means MMER will be reaching the amount of motorsport fans the event has never seen before. A big thanks to Asia motorsport Development (AMD) for helping us with these deals.”
