Team PCS Racing driver, Mok Weng Sun, clocked the second fastest time of the day in his Porsche 997 GT3 during the Macau GT Cup practice held yesterday at the Guia International Circuit.
Mok leads the 28 GT3 Asia and GT4 Asia Cup entries in the Macau GT Cup held during the Star-River Windsor Arch 57th Macau Grand Prix in Macau this weekend. Porsche Carrera Cup Asia driver, Rodolfo Avila set the fastest time of the day with 2:34.811.
Samson Chan had a good day setting the fourth fastest time and was the second fastest GT3 Asia driver on track. Just behind him is the young Kevin Tse who picked up the GT3 Asia Performing Driver award last night during the GT3 Asia, GT4 Asia Cup and the Asian Touring Car Series Awards Presentation Party at the Grand Hyatt Macau for his outstanding performance in GT3 Asia.
Leading the GT4 Asia Cup drivers is Matthew Perry who made an impressive run at the circuit in his Ginetta G50 setting a time of 2:46.822 to be the seventh fastest driver of the day. Perry’s Track Torque Racing teammate, Nigel Farmer set the 13th fastest time of the day.
The Macau GT Cup practice session was marred by yellow flags various times at the Melco Hairpin when the Lamborghinis could not make the turn at the tight ‘u-turn’ leaving a trail of traffic behind them with the marshals having to push the cars out of the corner.
The tight circuit proved to be a challenge for the Lamborghinis and the Astons seemingly at a disadvantage. Both the GT3 Asia and the GT4 Asia Cup Championship winners did not manage to set good times pushing them down the timesheets with GT3 Asia’s Dilantha Malagamuwa in 28th and GT4 Asia Cup’s Daniel Bilski in 17th.
The Macau GT Cup Qualifying session will be held at 10.55am local time on Saturday, 20 November 2010 with the race scheduled for Sunday, 21 November 2010 at 10.05am.
