Xu Jia and Alessio Picariello of KINGS have taken two impressive wins at rounds seven and eight of the China GT Championship at the Shanghai International Circuit.
The double-victory maintains the team’s astonishing record at the series in 2018, having won all eight rounds with the Audi R8 LMS GT3. Six of those victories belong to Xu Jia, with the Chinese privateer and reigning series champion extending his lead at the top of the GT3 championship.
With four races to go, Xu Jia sits atop the GT3 championship on 150 points, 33 points ahead of his nearest rival. Teammate Picariello is now third overall on 100 points with four race wins.
In the GTC class, Jeffrey Zee and Jason Zhang marked a strong first outing in the series in 2018, taking their Eagle Eyed Racing Audi R8 LMS Cup car to third in class in Saturday’s round seven, then fourth in class in Sunday’s round eight.
