In Friday morning’s 10:20am qualifying under hot and sunny conditions, PSR team and Multichannel/Cask 88/Brain Tumor Foundation for Children driver Maxx Ebenal of Canada dominated qualifying by taking the two fastest laps of the session, propelling him to pole position for both Friday afternoon’s Race 1 and Saturday afternoon’s Race 2. The highly talented PS Racing team and MotorsportPlayground.com driver Abelardo Cuellar of Mexico took a fantastic 3rd in qualifying, with Guillaume Cunnington 5th overall and a stellar four seconds ahead in the Master’s Class division.

In Friday afternoon’s Race 1 at 4:30pm, despite the threat of rain the event took place under hot and dry conditions. At the race start, Ebenal dropped behind P2 driver Kimi Chin and Cuellar, as Cuellar closed up just behind Chin – until Chin made contact with Cuellar, dropping Cuellar back while Ebenal passed both drivers to take a commanding lead for the remainder of the race. Cuellar fought his way back up to finish 4th overall and 3rd in International Class, setting the fastest laptime of the race in the process. Meanwhile, Guillaume Cunnington spun in the challenging high-speed corner 12, but despite falling back several positions fought his way back up the field to take his third Victory in the Master’s Class out of the three AFR races so far in 2014, with Master’s Class teammate Sebastien Mailleux taking the final spot on the podium in the their division. PSR’s Neric Wei put on a strong show by moving from 8th position in qualifying to finish 5th overall, placing 2nd in the Asian Class.

On Saturday afternoons Race Two/Round 4 of the 2014 AFR Championship, again held under hot and dry conditions, Ebenal took victory in the International Class with Mexican Abelardo Cuellar 2nd, which puts them 1st and 2nd, respectively, in the Asia Formula Renault 2014 Championship, while PS Racing’s Neric Wei moved up to 5th overall and took a 2nd place trophy in AFR’s Asian Class. Guillaume Cunnington took a stunning 3rd Masters win of 3 AFR races so far in 2014.

Sunday afternoon’s Race Three/Round 5 brought Maxx Ebenal 2nd overall but 1st in the International Class, earning him a hat trick with 3 International Class victories of the three races of the weekend. Cuellar took 9th overall but 3rd in International Class, while Guillaume Cunnington received a drive-through penalty for crossing the pit exit white line to avoid another driver. Despite the drive-though penalty dropping him far back, Cunnington fought his way back to finish 3rd in the Master’s Class Masters Class, an amazing 5th podium out of 5 AFR races, which was no surprise after he out qualified Formula Renault UK Champion/GP3 and F3 driver Alice Powell. Cunnington is now dominating the Masters Class in his debut AFR season, while Ebenal has a commanding lead in the overall Drivers Standings, with Abelardo Cuellar currently 2nd in points.

-Ebenal: “On behalf of myself and my fellow Bridgestone Racing Academy MTP 2007 graduate Pete Olson, I want to dedicate my wins this weekend to Don Meskis, Bridgestone Racing Academy coach and mentor for both of us at our time in the Bridgestone program.”

-Cuellar: “This weekend wasn’t all that I’d hoped for, but the point is that I’m able to consistently compete for the front of the pack now. I’m sure that with some more experience in the FRenault I’ll be on the top of the podium very soon.”

-Cunnington: “I’m really happy with how much I’ve progressed in PS Racing, and I want to thank the guys for all their hard work this weekend. It’s great that I’m not just fighting for wins in the Master’s Class now, but that I’m also able to be competitive against the International ranks. I’m really looking forward to taking a couple of wins in next month’s Pan Delta races – honestly I wasn’t very happy about the 3rd place today after the drive through penalty – I race to win.”

AFR’s next rounds, 6&7, will take place on June 14-15 at Zhuhai International Circuit during the famous Pan Delta Race Festival, with live television and 20,000+ weekend attendance.
