Audi RS 3 LMS wins Fuji 24 Hours

Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup

Perfect weekend for Anthony Liu: In round three of the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup, Anthony Liu from China won both races at Shanghai from pole position. In the first heat, the privateer from Absolute Racing had briefly lost the lead after the start. He dropped to fourth position, but before the end of lap one fought back to first in spite of 20 kilograms of ballast on board and went on to achieve a clear advantage. Alex Au from Hong Kong took second place while third went to last year’s champion Andrew Haryanto from Indonesia. 30 kilograms of ballast did not prevent Liu from dominating the second race, too. As a result, the Chinese also secured a slot in the “Road to Suzuka” program that provides the best Cup drivers with an opportunity to participate in the Suzuka 10 Hours in 2020. Alex Au again finished the race runner-up. Angelo Negro from Italy, on claiming third position, managed a strong debut weekend in the Audi R8 LMS Cup. In the GT4 category, Sheng Yanwen won both races. Australian Yasser Shahin continues to lead the standings ahead of Alex Au and Tony Bates. Anthony Liu advanced to position four following his successes at Shanghai.

As in the season opener, the Canadian from Ontario scored victory in both races on the circuit at Calabogie in an Audi R8 LMS GT4 fielded for him by Team Speedstar Motorsport. Thompson is now leading the standings with a 50-point advantage.
