Mercedes AMG One-twos in China and a class win in Brazil

Mercedes-AMG dominated the China Endurance Championship race weekend, registering one-two victories in both the first and second race. Melvin Moh (MAS), Han Songting and Xu Wei (both CHN) driving the number 77 ABS Project M Racing car pulled off a lights-to-flag victory in Saturday's 140-minute race at Tianjin, having started from pole position.



In second place were James Winslow (GBR) and Eric Zang (CHN) in the Mercedes-AMG GT3 fielded by Toro Racing. On Sunday, it was the turn of Winslow and Zang to ascend the top rung of the podium where they were joined by the runners-up in the number 18 car entered by T.K.R. Racing.
 
 

 
In the Endurance Brasil series, the Scuderia 111 pairing of Júlio Campos and Guilherme Figueiroa (both BRA) driving the number 8 Mercedes-AMG GT3 finished second overall, a result that was enough to give them victory in the GT3 class where they were joined on the podium by team-mates Xandy and Xandinho Negrão (both BRA) in the number 9 Mercedes-AMG GT3.



Negrão and Negrão continue to lead the drivers' standings in the GT3 classification. Scuderia 111 also had two top rankings in the GT4 class: Alexandre Auler and Leandro Romera (both BRA) were second in their class, while Sergio Jimenez and Leandro Ferrari (both BRA) finished third.
