Ho-Pin Tung 5th in championship Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2014
Ninth and sixth places in this weekends´ final races in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia brought Chinese racing driver Ho-Pin Tung fifth place in the overall 2014 standings. The Chinese had a difficult time in Shanghai, all weekend, from free practises till second race on Sunday, as he struggled with the handling of the car and with an inconvenient cold.
´We had to change al lot to the car, looking for a good set up constantly, to find faster lap times. Prior to second race we took a new set of shock absorbers and that helped significantly. But already in the first lap of the first race things went horribly wrong. Alif Hamdan topedoed his car into the side of my Porsche Carrera GT3. It sure is a miracle that I managed to finish that race. At the end of this season in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia I do thank all my colleagues of the Budweiser Team Absolute Racing for all the good work in this long and beautyful season.´
