|SUPPORT RACE PROGRAMME SUCCESS|
The Macau Road Sport Challenge and the Chinese Racing Cup featured on today’s support race programme.
Suncity Group Macau Road Sport Challenge
Macao’s Lo Kai Fung in a Mitsubishi EVO7 won today’s Suncity Group Macau Road Sport Challenge, ahead of fellow Macao drivers Wong Wan Long in a Mitsubishi EVO 10 and Ng Kin Veng in a Mitsubishi EVO 9.
At the start, Leong Ian Veng in a Mitsubishi EVO 9 led the race from pole position, with Lo and Wong behind him. On Lap 4, Wong was overtaken by Mitsuhiro Kinoshita in a Nissan GTR R34, but a lap later Wong reclaimed the place. On Lap 6, Lo took the lead from Leong, who later dropped down the order. In the latter stages of the 10-lap race, the Safety Car was called out, before an incident at San Francisco ended the race, with a triumphant Lo taking the victors’ laurels.
Suncity Group Chinese Racing Cup
Chinese driver David Zhu completed a perfect Macao outing by winning the third edition of the Suncity Group Chinese Racing Cup. Zhu, who started from pole, finished ahead of Chang Chien Shang of Chinese Taipei and Chinese driver Jason Zhang Zhi Qiang.
Zhang took the lead from Zhu on the opening laps of the race. However, the pair continued to battle for the position, and Zhu was able to re-take the lead on Lap 5 at San Francisco. Not long afterwards, Chang also got by Zhang. On Lap 7, the Safety Car was called out for a second time. Racing resumed for one final lap, and while Chang looked for an opportunity to get past, Zhu held on for the win.
