Super Typhoon brings challenges for Lamborghini in GT Super Sprint Challenge

•    Five-strong entry battles the elements in double-header at Shanghai International Circuit

•    Adolf Lee of TRT leads Super Trofeo Class after four races of new all-Am series

•    Double podium success for Markus Engel on series debut





The five-strong Lamborghini entry for the second round of the new GT Super Spring Challenge (GTSSC) saw TRT Racing’s Adolf Lee take the lead of the Super Trofeo Class, and series newcomer Markus Engel find success with two consecutive GTC Class podiums.  



Racing at the 5.451km Shanghai International Circuit for the third and fourth races of the 10-race season, the effects of approaching Super Typhoon Chanthu brought multiple challenges as the all-Am field went in search of critical championship points.



With his two class wins, Lee, racing the no. 11 GT2 specification of the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo, now leads the Super Trofeo Class ahead of his rival and teammate Kang Zhilong.  



TRT Racing’s Engel, competing in the GTC class, finished third on his series debut before going one better in the second race of the weekend.



The two Team 777 by Climax Racing supported by Lamborghini entries of Yang Ruoyu and Hu Yuqi racing in the GT3 class were both unlucky this weekend, but came away with some important points ahead of the championship’s next double-header next month at the Zhuzhou International Circuit.




Race 1




Hu Yuqi was the fastest of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo entries during Saturday’s single qualifying session and started the day’s opening 27-minute race from the second row, while Yang in the no. 19 entry started from the fourth row.



Rainy conditions saw the race started under the Safety Car, but after racing got underway Hu quickly moved up two positions as he set his sights on the race lead. But a lap later Hu’s hard work was undone after he spun into the gravel, prematurely ending his race.



Yang also fell victim to the treacherous conditions with an early spin sending him down the order and forcing him to fight his way back to a fifth-place Am class finish.



Markus Engel earned himself a GTC podium after a steady race that saw him finish third in class. Adolf Lee led the Super Trofeo Class from start to finish to take the class victory and a 12th-place finish overall, while teammate Kang was second in the category and crossed the line behind Yang.






Race 2



With the results from the opening race setting the grid for Race 2, Hu was determined return to his form of earlier in the weekend. As the rain continued to fall, however, Race 2 also started under the Safety Car. When the field was finally released, Hu quickly moved up to 12th in the order and began to close the gap to his rivals. Hu crossed the line in 11th overall, fifth in the Am class, while Yang’s efforts saw him finish sixth in the category.



Lee led the entries in the Super Trofeo Class, maintaining his class lead throughout the race to finish 14th overall and take the category win and the lead in the Super Trofeo Class standings. Luck wasn’t on Kang’s side as he dropped to the back of the field early in the race, before an epic charge saw him make up nine positions to ultimately claim second in the Super Trofeo class.



Engel capped off a strong weekend with his second podium in as many races, going one better with a second-place finish in the GTC category.




Round 3 of the GTSSC is scheduled for October 2-3 at the Zhuzhou International Circuit in China’s Hunan Province.
