Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia 2018 - Promises Electrifying Shanghai Showdown

• High stakes Asian finale ahead of Italian Finale


• Andrea Amici and Artur Janosz lead the charge for Pro title fight


• Four championship titles at play in Shanghai double-header  



The battle for the 2018 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia intensifies this weekend at China’s Shanghai International Circuit where the season’s penultimate round will mark the thrilling climax of the championship’s Asian schedule before it heads to Europe.



 All four championship titles are still far from decided, a testament to the strength and intensity of the competition throughout the field that, after eight races, the Pro, Pro-Am, Am and Lamborghini Cup honours remain wide open.



This weekend’s two races at the Hermann Tilke-designed, 5.451km home to the Chinese F1 Grand Prix mark the culmination of the Asian part of the calendar, after which the championship travels to Italy’s Vallelunga Circuit for the its final two races - and the sensational Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Final.




 The annual event, first held in 2013, is an exclusive end-of-season showdown between drivers from the European, USA, Middle East and Asian series, and represents the ultimate challenge to decide the Lamborghini Super Trofeo world champion in each category.



Leading the charge heading to Shanghai in the Pro title fight are FFF Racing Team’s Andrea Amici and Artur Janosz who have won four races together this year, while a second-place finish over the summer in Fuji helped them earn a 20-point lead over fellow FFF Racing Team pairing, Jack Bartholomew and James Pull.



Third in the Pro class is Leipert Motorsport’s Ben Gersekowski, racing once again with regular team mate Richard Muscat this weekend as the young Australian pair hunt down their second victory of the season.



Having joined the series four races into the season, Clazzio Racing’s Kei Cozzolino and Afiq Yazid are fourth in the title fight but, following a superb double victory in Fuji earlier this summer, will be the team to beat in Shanghai.



Just two points separate the leaders in the ultra-competitive Pro-Am class. Gama Racing’s Evan Chen of Chinese Taipei and Akihiro Asai of Japan are on 96 points, ahead of Leipert Motorsport’s Finnish pairing of Mikko Eskelinen and Juuso Puhakka on 94.




During the last race weekend at Fuji, each team scored a pole position, a win and a second-place finish, and this weekend promises to be an equally competitive affair. Third in the standings are Japan’s Takeshi Matsumoto and Toshiyuki Ochiai of Hojust Racing.



Aylezo Motorsport’s Prabakaran Kumar and Max Wiser are on the hunt for their second win together, having also scored a third-place finish during the last round in Fuji.



In the Am Cup, Thailand’s Bobby Buncharoen will be out to continue his scorching form with the True Visions Motorsports having scored a win in each of the race weekend he’s entered this year. Also competing in the Am category are Chinese drivers Bian and Chao Pan of the D1 Racing Team.



The battle for the Lamborghini Cup also resumes in Shanghai. The 852 Challengers of Hong Kong drivers Paul Wong and Clement Li sit atop the class standings ahead of Italian Gabriele Murroni of GDL Racing Team, but this is an intense rivalry which is far from over.



In Shanghai, Lamborghini Cup driver Takamichi Matsuda of YH Racing Team will be joined by fellow Japanese driver Dai Yoshihara, while Chinese driver Fu Songyang of FFF Racing Team also makes his series debut in Shanghai.



The Shanghai International Circuit, one of Asia’s most prestigious motorsport facilities, has hosted the Chinese round of the F1 world championship since it opened in 2004, as well as rounds of MotoGP, the FIA World Endurance Championship and the FIA World Touring Car Championship.




 The track layout follows the Chinese character ‘shang’ from ‘Shanghai’, meaning “ascend” – something each and every Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia driver will be determined to do this weekend as the four championship fights are played out in China’s Nevernight City.



Two hour-long free practice slots on Friday, September 21, will be followed by two qualifying sessions on Saturday to set the grid for the races. The weekend’s opening race starts at 14:10 local time (GMT+8), while Sunday’s race is set for 11:40 (GMT+8). Live streaming for both races will be available on the Lamborghini Squadra Corse website and Facebook pages.
