|Craft Eurasia one-two at MSS during the Malaysia GP|
Craft Eurasia drivers, Frank Yu and Samson Chan, finished first and second in the GT Race held as part of the Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix 2012.
The two Ginetta G50Z GT3 drivers fought over the lead in a dramatic race which ran several laps under the safety car after a first lap accident.
The first of two races took place on Saturday, 24 March 2012 at the Sepang F1 Circuit where Yu and Chan finished second and third respectively of the Asian GT driver entries. Chan spent the entire race defending from Philip Ma in a new Audi GT3 but Ma overtook Chan on the last corner of the last lap after an entertaining race.
The second race, held before the Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix 2012, saw Dilantha Malagamuwa trigger a multi-car accident on the run up to the first turn at the start. The safety car was deployed for several laps to allow for the track to be cleared.
Once again the Eurasia duo were in a close battle with Philip Ma who took the lead from Yu and Chan on the first lap, after the safety car was deployed.
At the re-start Yu and Chan pushed Ma all the way to the flag. The duo maintained a safe pace as they knew Ma would be penalised for the overtaking manoeuvre during the safety car period and once the twenty second penalty was applied, the Craft Eurasia duo were awarded the one-two finish.
New team mate, Francis Onda in his Ferrari 430 GT3, qualified a fine fifth on the grid for race one. However a couple of spins in the race left him with a lowly starting position for race two. He just managed to avoid the lap one carnage and finished 8th out of the 27 starters.
