Super GT Driver Mok Weng Sun Claim Pole in his Ferrari F458 for Rounds 3 & 4
Mok Weng Sun claimed Pole Position for the Malaysian leg of the Super GT this coming weekend. Mok clocked a fastest time of 2 minutes 08.053 seconds in Qualifying session 1, to line up ahead of Tunku Hammam in second and Dilantha Malagamuwa in third for Round 3. He will also take the lead on the grid for Round 4 ahead of Frank Yu and Malagamuwa. The Singaporean driver, driving the first Ferrari F458 GT3 in Asia did the team proud and have started off the weekend better than his previous outing three weeks ago at the same circuit.
Tunku Hammam who will line up on the grid in second for Round 3 said “First qualifying was not too bad. I had understeering problems but I managed P2 but in the second qualifying, after changing to new tyres I had a totally opposite reaction. I had oversteer in the highest order. I almost lost it a few times on the fast turns”.
Sri Lankan Dilantha Malagamuwa claimed third in both sessions, “It was terrible when I went out in the first Qualifying. I’m carrying over 100kg in weight ballast. The speed is very low so we took off the wing which helped a little bit. We thought we would get 5th or 6th but managed to get two third places so it’s good. The GT Asia Series will continue on Saturday, 18 June 2011 with Round 3 held at 3.30pm while Round 4 will be at 1.15pm on Sunday, 19 June 2011.
