Touring Car Series Sepang 29th Results, Jordi Wins It


Jordi Gene marked his racing comeback with a lights-to-flag victory in the second TCR event of the weekend in Sepang, as Craft-Bamboo Racing took a 1-2 finish. Gene lead away from the start under enormous pressure from Hungarian teenager Ferenc Ficza, but the veteran Spaniard was soon able to build a rhythm, leaving Ficza to defend from Pepe Oriola and Gianni Morbidelli’s Honda.

As the front four began to break away from the chasing pack, Oriola made his move into turn four, forcing Ficza wide over the run-off and allowing an opportunistic Morbidelli to take third. Oriola then considered making a challenge for the lead, but after a brief spell of pressure was content to settle for second, behind an elated Gene.

As Ficza drifted backwards to an eventual tenth, Target Competion team-mates Andrea Belicchi and Stefano Comini advanced to fourth and fifth places behind Morbidelli. Belicchi managed to make a move stick on the final lap, only to leave the door open at the final corner; Morbidelli didn’t need to be asked twice, with Saturday-winner Comini also managing to pass on the short run to the flag.

Honda team-mates Rene Munnich and Kevin Gleason kept out of trouble to finish sixth and seventh. After the chaos of race one, the field at least managed to keep it clean until turn four, when Michel Nykjaer barrelled into Lorenzo Veglia, Saturday podium finisher Sergey Afanasyev and the luckless Mikhail Grachev. At least this time the Audi would make it to the finish in eighth, from Frank Yu and Ficza.
