Matthew Marsh is back with A-Ha Racing Porsche

Matthew Marsh will defend his Porsche Infineon Carrera Cup Asia title in 2005 driving once again for A-Ha Racing. Champion Marsh said "Obviously it's great to be back in the region's premier racing series," ahead of this weekend's official test sessions in Sepang, Malaysia.

Last year Matthew took four victories and won the championship by three points. "It was very close! I enjoyed the pressure actually; it's nice to be so focussed on something. I can only imagine 2005 will be much harder. Rizal Ramli had some bad luck last year which cost him points; Johnny Cocker is coming over from the UK to give us a hard time; Darryl O'Young has just returned from racing in some Carrera Cup races in New Zealand. And this is without considering Nattavude who is always, always, a serious contender."
"It's also fabulous to stay with A-Ha. The racing was very successful in 2004 but more importantly Uni-President made great strides in establishing the coffee brand across China. I think we can do even better this year."
