Absolute Racing is proud to unveil its ambitious plans for the upcoming 2024 GT racing season, marking the launch of its subsidiary, Absolute Corse. This strategic move signals a significant expansion of the team's racing operations.
Absolute Corse will enter a brand-new Ferrari 296 GT3 in the 2024 Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia Powered by AWS season. Furthermore, the team will add a second car later in the season.
Absolute Corse will be based at the team's headquarters in Shanghai, with an operational base strategically located in the vicinity of the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. This strategic positioning allows the team to capitalize on the region's dynamic racing landscape.

Absolute Racing stands as a prominent and successful GT racing team in the Asian region. Over the years, it has amassed an impressive track record, securing victories in prestigious events and championships, including the Sepang 12 Hours, Macau Grand Prix - Macau GT Race, Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia by AWS, China Endurance Championship, GT Super Sprint Challenge, and the China GT Championship. Additionally, the team has competed in top-tier endurance events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Bathurst 12 Hour, Suzuka 10 Hours, and Crowdstrike 24 Hours of Spa, among others.
The decade-long partnership with Audi and Porsche remains steadfast, and Absolute Racing is poised to uphold its tradition of entering two cars with both brands, just as it has consistently done in the past, for the Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia in 2024.
