OAK Racing rules at Shanghai


Three races and three wins, the streak just continues. OAK Racing confirmed this weekend that will be hard to beat them in the Asian Le Mans Series, as the No. 1 Morgan-Judd of David Cheng and Ho-Pin Tung won the 3 Hours of Shanghai.

OAK Racing's chinese duo didn't gave a chance to the No. 27 Eurasia Motorsport Oreca 03-Nissan of James Winslow, Pu Jun Jin and John Hartshorne, as Cheng drove strongly to open a 1-lap gap between the only two LMP2 contenders. After that, Tung jast had to bring the car to the finish line, but not without more good laps to keep the victory in a safe place.


From third to seventh place overall we had the GT class entries, with a surprise-like class victory for Mok Weng Sun, Keita Sawa and Matt Griffin in their No. 33 Clearwater Racing Ferrari 458 GT3, as their opposition was the three car horde from Jun San Chen's AAI Motorsports, the only GT full season entries this season. Clearwater started behind, as the No. 90 AAI Mercedes SLS took the lead with Takeshi Tsuchiya, but when Griffin took the wheel of the No. 33 Ferrari, he charged into the lead and received the chackered first.


The CN category entries occuped the last two places, 18 laps behind the overall winners, with the No. 77 CRAFT-Bamboo Racing Ligier JS 53 claiming the class win against the Team Avelon Formula No. 21 Wolf GB08. Even a spin suffered by Kevin Tse in the No. 77 car when the fight was at its closest didn't denied the win to the green and white side, as an electrical problem with Avelon Formula car made them get out of the class win fight.
