Podium finish Ho-Pin Tung in Porsche Carrera Cup Asia
Ho-Pin Tung had a rewarding weekend at the Sepang racing track,Malaysia. The Chinese racing driver scored a third place in this weekends’ first race, on Saturday and a fifth in the second one on Sunday, in his Porsche Carrera 911 GT3,fielded by the Budweiser Team Absolute Racing. Ho-Pin Tung now holds third position in the overall standings.
‘It was a good weekend,’ stated Ho-Pin Tung,looking back right after the second race. ‘Another podium finish, on Sunday, was realistic,but a collision with Avila and a subsequent spin made me fall back till 11th. I had to fight my way up, in spite of damage to the steering of my Porsche. I managed to finish fifth, very close behind fourth. Avila and I colliding was not more than a typical racing incident, we both drove on the edge. All weekend the pace was good, I competed in the head of the field. That there was no second podium finish is just misfortune.’
