“Motorsport has been a long-standing personal interest for me, and I am delighted to be entering into a partnership with an organisation that has enjoyed success in so many categories and has such ambitions for its future," Lim said.
“We have an established involvement with sport; however, this is our first global investment in motorsport.
"Its dynamic appeal, growing exposure, business-to-business marketing opportunities and burgeoning fan base are aligned with my ambitions personally and commercially.”
Hitech CEO Oliver Oakes later added: “I am delighted to welcome Vladimir Kim to the Hitech group.
"During our discussions we found many natural synergies and I know that his support will be invaluable as we seek to build on Hitech’s success and work towards achieving its broader ambitions over the years to come.”
