Proving its pedigree and attitude wasn’t lost, GruppeM Racing claimed three championships in its initial year, Teams Overall, Drivers Overall and Bronze Driver. By the end of 2017, GruppeM Racing made another milestone by becoming the first Asian racing to to become an official Mercedes-AMG Performance team, when it competed at Macau GT world cup on behalf of Mercedes-AMG. Even more was yet to come in 2018 when Mercedes-AMG Team GruppeM Racing left another important mark on history by conquering the famous circuit of Suzuka during the 10 Hours of Suzuka, against the greatest drivers and endurance teams in the World.
To end the decade, Mercedes-AMG Team GruppeM Racing couldn’t have finish in a better way, when it claimed the 2019 GT3 World Cup Title in Macau. An astonishing result for the history of GruppeM Racing.
