PS Racing-coached drivers show steady improvement in Audi R8 LMS Cup China Rounds 1&2

ZHUHAI, China - May 29, 2013 - PRLog -- Zhuhai International Circuit

Zhuhai, China-

The season-opener rounds of the Audi R8 LMS Cup China took place this past weekend at the Zhuhai International Circuit, bringing a spectacular show to race fans and live web broadcast viewers.

Under the guidance of PS Racing owner and head coach Pekka Saarinen [], drivers Sun Zheng, Wen ‘Ricky’ Ren, Jingzu Sun and Benjamin Lee all showed strong improvement over the weekend. While Ren, Sun, and Lee made progress over the weekend in the Amateur class in their very first Audi R8 LMS weekend, one of the most exciting battles of rounds 1&2 was in the international class at the front of race one: a nose-to-tail race long battle between Sun Zheng, who had qualified P8 and moved up to P5 just behind Audi factory DTM driver Rahel Frey of Switzerland. Though Sun Zheng seemed ready to pass and battled it out closely with Frey for most of the race, Frey just managed to hold onto P4, with Sun Zheng finishing just 1 second behind the accomplished DTM Audi factory driver in 5th.

In the amateur class, Ricky Ren, Jingzu Sun and Benjamin Lee all improved over the weekend, with Ren finishing 6th and 4th and Jingzu finishing 8th and 5th in the amateur class, respectively, and Benjamin Lee managing to qualify 6th in the Amateur class and 7th in class for both races.

With the next races at Ordos International Circuit on 29 June, and Sun Zheng 6th overall, just 8 points behind 5th place Rahel Frey after the first two rounds, anything is possible for the outcome of the 2013 Audi R8 LMS Cup China series.
