In the 2016 season, for the first time, the participants of the Audi R8 LMS Cup will have the choice between three service partners fielding the race cars. Starting next year, Phoenix Racing and KC Motorgroup (KCMG) will be offering their services, while Absolute Racing as the series’ partner from day one continues to be on board. The two new service partners bring a wealth of racing experience to the series. Ernst Moser’s Team Phoenix Racing has won the DTM twice and the Nürburgring 24 Hours four times. The former Cup winner Marchy Lee will be integrated into the organization of Phoenix Racing Asia. Paul Ip’s KCMG company based in Hong Kong decided the LMP2 class in the Le Mans 24 Hours in its favor this year, as well as the Formula Masters China Series. Ingo Matter is the team boss of Absolute Racing – the squad that has been fielding Audi’s GT3 race cars for the cup entrants since 2012.
