Driver Quotes


Chris van der Drift #68 Gama Racing Pro Winner, Round 1, Race 1


“I nearly crashed to the grid! I thought to myself, ‘what the hell are these rain tyres?’. And then I realised oh, they’re slicks, that makes sense! So as soon as I got some temperature in, I could manage. It was really, really wet in the middle sector – the fast corners were soaking there. And then at least the water ran off so you could sort of drive on that, just brake really early and try and stay on the track.


There were a few corners that were just bone dry, so you could haul ass around there. Then the other ones, you just had to stay on and then wait. Just balance it like that. Just before the pitstop window, I just started hauling ass. I thought ‘now we’re on the money’. I knew, compared to the others, Evan would have warm tyres anyway as everything was warm on the slicks. It’s cool. My first race in Lamborghini!”




Evan Chen #68 Gama Racing Pro Winner, Round 1, Race 1


“Obviously Chris didn’t give me enough of a brief, so on my first lap I almost crashed! I couldn’t see the dry and wet because of the lights. But seriously, Chris did the toughest job of the stint at the start. It was really difficult, I could see that. Luckily at the end, sector 1 was pretty much dry. Everyone was on wets, so we just found our way past.”



Afiq Yazid, #38 Hojust Racing Pro-Am Winner, Round 1, Race 1

“An unbelievable race for the opening of the season. I think it was the same conditions as last year where it was half wet and half dry on the track. For the Pro they are using the slick tyres which was a very good decision but for us it was pretty hard to choose because he [Toshiyuki Ochiai] was driving first. He decided to use wet tyres.
The race was good. During his stint he overtook our rivals, so I’m pretty happy. For my stint, the tyres were finished and the track was drying up so what can I do but finish the race?”



Andrew Haryanto #18 Tedco Racing Am Winner, Round 1, Race 1


“The start was OK. I was just being cautious, but when I had to push, that’s when it started getting a bit tough. My team engineers were telling me ‘go, go, go, one more car, one more car’. Every time, ‘one more car’. It just didn’t stop. Being a good boy, I obliged – I don’t know why! I kept my concentration though. It should be good training for the next round.”



Paul Wong #44 852 Challengers Lamborghini Cup Winner, Round 1, Race 1


“It was raining so it was very difficult. I didn’t do very well and things didn’t go according to plan, but thankfully my partner [Clement Li] had a very good performance and we won the race. We’re happy to come back to the series and win today. Very happy, but it was very stressful.”



Clement Li #44 852 Challengers Lamborghini Cup Winner, Round 1, Race 1


“I tried very hard to catch up with Murroni, who drove very defensively during the last five, six laps, looking for a chance. He made a small mistake on the second last corner, so I took the opportunity and overtook him and took the victory. We were very lucky. It was very difficult – the rain, being on wet tyres they were overheating so it was very slippery. It was good fun.”
