Looking to make a strong finish to their campaign and build on recent good form, Lyons and Craft Bamboo Racing are making preparations for the final two rounds of GT Asia this weekend. This season sees the Shanghai rounds take place on the full F1 circuit, previous seasons saw the running of the races on the shorter variant.
The full circuit weighs in at 5.4Km, with some very fast straights and tight corners, 16 of them in total. The weather, as always, will be hot and humid, providing another challenge for the drivers of GTasia. With over 15 seasons of racing in Asia under his belt, Lyons will be very used to these punishing conditions, and ready to step up the game and take Craft Bamboo Racing and Porsche to the next step on the podium.
“Coming from a double podium in the last two rounds of GTasia in Japan, we’re hoping that this is concrete foundations for more. Shanghai has been a strong circuit for me in the past, but this time we will use the full F1 circuit so a few extra corners to learn. My race partner, Frank Yu, has been getting more and more comfortable with each passing lap in our Porsche, and we’ve been working closely to keep up this momentum. We have a success penalty to serve in the coming races after our endeavours in the previous rounds, but I’m hoping that we can still sneak another podium and move up the championship order.”.
