Porsche Carrera Cup Asia – Ordos International Circuit, July 6-8, 2012– Round 6

Guest driver Allan Simonsen took victory in Round 6 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia yesterday after a monumental charge through the entire 27-strong field.  Second was BBTs Davide Rizzo, followed across the line by Team Betterlife’s Wang Jian Wei of China. Both drivers led the race at one stage, and both had looked good to take the win. In Class B, Wayne Shen of Modena Motorsports took the victory, with Seminole Racing Team’s Egidio Perfetti second and Francis Tjia of OpenRoad Racing taking his second podium finish of the weekend.
Despite finishing in 11th in Round 6, PICC Team StarChase driver Alexandre Imperatori retains his grip on the overall championship race with 106 points, with reigning champion Keita Sawa of LKM Racing Team second on 69.  Benjamin Rouge of Team Yongda Dongfang and Tung Ho-Pin of Budweiser Team StarChase are tied in 4th position, each with 60 points.  In Class B, Perfetti retains the lead with a six point margin over Shen, with Francis Tjia third.

Simonsen was understandably thrilled with the win:  “I didn’t finish the first race, so started 27th. I didn’t think it was possible to go from 27th to 1st, but I never gave up.  The car felt good, and the wet suited it 100%.  I pushed probably 110%, and went off the track several times I think.  As the track started to dry, it wasn’t as fast but I could see from the pit boards that I was in a position to challenge for a win.  It feels really good, and this is a fantastic championship!”.
Despite the challenges of the Ordos track, wet conditions, and a 27-strong field, all but one of the cars completed the 14 lap race, testament to the extraordinarily high standard of racing the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has attained.  The weekend represented an extreme test of both man and machine, and the field more than rose to the challenge.

The incredible tenth Porsche Carrera Cup Asia season continues at the end of the August when it leaves China for the first time this year with Rounds 7 and 8 at Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit from August 30 to September 2.  As this weekend proved, with such a competitive field, predictions are pointless as the form book could well be turned on its head once again.
