At the beginning of 2008, Motorsport Asia Limited and the Supercar Club of Hong Kong reached an agreement to jointly organise the Asia Supercar Challenge to further increase the levels of professionalism and worldwide interest in the Championship.
In 2009, the series evolved to become the GT3 Asia Challenge and was held as part of the Asian Festival of Speed, competing at four different circuits. Two rounds were held in Shanghai, two in Sepang, one in Sentul, followed by its first ever trip to Japan, at the Autopolis Circuit. The end of the season invitational race was he;d at Asia's oldest street circuit during the prestigious 56th Macau Grand Prix.
The 2011 season saw another evolution of the Championship, combining GT3 Asia with the GT4 Asia Cup to form a brand new and even more competitive Championship - GT Asia.
For 2016, the Series - promoted solely by Motorsport Asia Limited - is scheduled to visit Korea International Circuit in South Korea, Buriram International Circuit in Thailand, Okayama International Circuit and Fuji International Speedway in Japan and Shanghai International Circuit in China.
