[赛车频道]2014赛季AFR R1: 詹家图夺揭幕战冠军
Champ Motorsport’s Jim Ka To dominated in the season opener of 2014 Asian Formula Renault Series, while ART’s Pu Jun Jin took the win in Asian Class and PS Racing’s Guillaume Cunnington got Masters Class win.
At the start, Jim Ka To jumped pole-sitter Pu Jun Jin to the fist corner and never look back. He then dominated the whole race by stretching his lead to more than 2 seconds and took the win comfortably. This win marked a stormy return for the former Series Champion.
Pu Jun Jin made a bad start and once fell to 4th, but he climbed back step by step. He overtook Qin Tianqi for 3rd early on and made a stunning criss-cross move to take Buzz Racing’s Shigetomo Shimono’s 2nd. He then settled for that place and 1st in Asian Class.
Shimono and PS Racing’s Maxx Ebenal shared the rest of the steps of International’s Podium. Qin Tianqi and KRC’s Wang Yang came home in 5th and 6th respectively and 2nd, 3rd in Asian Class.
In Masters Class, Guillaume Cunnington got the win with teammate Andrea Reggiani 2nd. ART’s Thomas Luedi 3rd in Class.
The race has been mostly incident free, yet FRD Racing Team’s Kenneth Lau and Ni Weiliang from ART tangled in T9 and had to retire.
Race 2 will be on Sunday afternoon.
