PS Racing takes podium in AFR Pan Delta season opener; stands a close 2nd in team points

 
ZHUHAI, China - March 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Zhuhai International Circuit, Zhuhai China:

With excellent weather conditions for last weekend’s Asia Formula Renault [AFR] Rounds 1&2 March 16-17, both AFR races were closely-fought battles from start to finish. PS Racing’s Alexandra Asmasoebrata made it into the 1.37’s during qualifying, while Sideways Driving Club/ChildFund driver Pete Olson of PS Racing qualified in the 38s. The third PS Racing driver and last year’s HTCC [Hong Kong Touring Car Championship] Driver Champion Sunny Wong was only able to do two laps in qualifying with a spin off track in Turn 14, after another car overbraked in front of him –this put him to 13th on the grid for the start of Race One.

However, in the first race on Saturday afternoon at 3:30pm, Sunny Wong made a hard charge up the grid after an incredible start, moving all the way up to 5th past the cars of ART, PTRS, KRC and Champ Motorsport on the very first lap. Wong held onto the spot until the end, despite the drama of a competitor’s engine explosion in Turn 4 which left oil on the track and sand put on the track from Turn 4 to Turn 7 during the 5 lap safety car period; Asmasoebrata finished a solid 4th and Pete Olson 6th in the International Category.  

Race two on Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm was again held under good weather conditions, with a closely-fought race on a clean track after Saturday’s oil incident, with the PS Racing drivers and first half of the grid all very close in lap times with constant battles for position. Asmasoebrata finished 4th in the International Class, with Pete Olson 6th, and Sunny Wong taking the 3rd spot on the podium after a brilliant last-lap pass on Champ Motorsport’s Julio Acosta in Turn 11.  

The strong results of the PS Racing drivers put PS Racing a close 2nd in Team points to Buzz Racing after last weekend’s Rounds 1&2, with Rounds 3&4 only two months away.
