|Audi R8 LMS Cup raring to go as GT Asia Series continues|
Chinese Taipei’s Jeffrey Lee and Marchy Lee of Hong Kong, the two red-hot drivers who make up the official Audi R8 LMS Cup entry in the GT Asia Series, are on scorching form as they head to Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit this weekend for Rounds 3 and 4.
Each driver celebrated a podium finish in the Audi R8 LMS Cup series last weekend, with Marchy taking outright victory in Round 3 and Jeffrey winning both rounds in the Amateur category.
The pair head to the Sepang International Circuit at the top of the GT Asia Series championship leaderboard, Marchy heading the point table and Jeffrey just a single point behind and tied for second place.
The high-profile meeting is part of the Japan Super GT weekend at the Malaysian Formula 1 circuit, and the Audi R8 LMS Cup team can expect plenty of attention from huge crowds which are anticipated.
Racing the Audi R8 LMS ultra, Jeffrey and Marchy are both fully focused on quick laps and smooth driver changeovers in a series where teamwork plays as crucial a role as driver skills and sheer power.
The two qualifying sessions for Rounds 3 and 4 of the GT Asia Series will be held on Friday, June 8, with Round 3 on Saturday and Round 4 on Sunday.
Jeffrey Lee: “We learned a great deal in the opening rounds last month, and we’re working really well together as a team. Now it’s time to strengthen what we have already established as a team, and together grab as many points as we can. This is a seriously competitive championship and we have to be right at the top of our game.”
Marchy Lee: “We can’t wait to resume the title chase this weekend! The Audi R8 LMS ultra is a superb car to race, and the team has given Jeffrey and I a winning package. We’ll be gunning for glory as well as points, and can guarantee everyone a tremendous show this weekend.”
