Tied on Points, the GT Asia Title Battle will Come Sown to the Wire
Heading into the penultimate round of the 2015 GT Asia Series season In Thailand, three teams were locked in battle for the coveted title as champions. Sixteen points separated points leader Darryl O’Young from 2014 sensations Anthony Liu and Davide Rizzo, with two-time winners this season, Keita Sawa and Adderly Fong, just four points off the championship lead with two races still to come.
There was everything to play for during qualifying, with two lightning sessions providing a brilliant platform for the last race but one, a script which was made all the more enticing after O’Young failed to record a competitive time thanks to contact with a GTM class car early in his session which ultimately saw him start rear-of-field for the opening 60-minute race.
With everything to play for, his rivals charged, but as has happened so many times over recent rounds, O’Young’s talented team-mate Daniel Lloyd forged his through the field to minimise the points loss, handing us a final round for the year which sees the two title combatants start alongside each other on the front row of the grid, tied on points.
It’s going to be an epic final race!
