[赛车频道]2014Clio R1: 卢彪夺冠，方中信意外退赛
Hong Kong driver Eric Lo won the first race of 2014 Clio Cup China Series after original winner Naomi Schiff was added 30 seconds by the result of a jump start penalty issued. Chinese Ye Xingping took Class B win with Chin Kar Lok the fastest celebrity, while superstar Fong Chun Shun retired after contact.
Naomi Schiff’s car moved and stopped before the red lights were off, and was deemed a jump start by the race stewards. Although she led the whole race and took the chequered first, she was added 30 seconds to her results and demoted to 7th. Eric Lo inherited the win after passing Yu Kam Cheong late in the race. Yu Kam Cheong 2nd, while Chin Kar Lok got 3rd after a fierce midfield battle.
Alan Lee and FRD’s Kenneth Ma came home in 4th and 5th respectively, just ahead of Kenneth Lau in 6th.
The battle for the win in Class B was more eventful. Huang Yi was the early leader with Benson Wong behind him, but both suffered accidents. Benson Wong went off track at T3, while Huang Yi was tangled up with Fong Chun Shun, the HK movie star. Fong’s suspension was damaged during the process and has to retire for good. The win went to Ye Xingping eventually, while Cary Yau and Huang Yi got 2nd and 3rd in Class.
Female star Ch’ng Se Min finished the race unscathed and came home in 12th.
