Super Trofeo Asia Wraps-Up Day Two in Japan with Impressive Performance

Another day of great racing was had today at the Fuji International Speedway. With eight nationalities represented, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo continued to represent the ideal platform for gentleman drivers from around the region to compete in one of the world’s most impressive super sports cars: the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4.

Clear skies continued and drivers were clearly more comfortable with the track. There was very little change in placement for the first half of the race, indicating that drivers had already mastered the complex layout of the track, using it to their advantage.

Wiser/Xin (#9) once again dominated today’s race with amateur racer Toshiyuki Ochiai (#2) climbing into the top place for two laps before falling behind for the rest of the race. Things started to get more interesting by lap 13 with Wiser/Xin (#9) dropping back for a bit only return to the leader pack later in the race. The Japanese team of Takei/Furuta (#16) made a valiant, yet short-lived jump to the top, staying in the leader pack for three full laps. From lap 17 to the end of the race things remained generally unchanged in the top three spots in the PRO-AM category, which were taken by Wiser/Xin (#9) in first, the persistent Sri Lankan/Japanese duo of Malagamuwa/Urata (#24) in second and the Malaysian pair Zen/Afiq (#69) coming in third.

Competition in the AM category was a bit more intense than the PRO-AM with a lot of ranking changes throughout the race. Japanese favorite Toshiyuki Ochiai (#2), who ranked second overall in this year’s series by the end of Sentul, remained just outside the leader pack for the majority of the race and placed second in the AM category while first place was snatched away by the Japanese team of Takei/Furuta (#16). Third place was taken by KazuyukiYamaguchi (#12)

Wiser/Xin continue to lead overall rankings for the Super Trofeo with continuous first place wins in all races. Japanese racer Toshiyuki Ochiai will also hold on to his second place position, while Zen/Afiq, previously tied for fourth place with Dominic Ang, may move up ahead of third-placed Andrea Garbagnati, who currently has the same number of points, but did not appear in the Fuji race.

Automobili Lamborghini S.P.A. also presented car #11 driver Akihiko Nakaya and the Emperor Racing Team with a special award in recognition of their outstanding performance in the Fuji race.

As two days of intense racing in Japan come to an end, Automobili Lamborghini and Blancpain now turn their sights to the next stop of the Super Trofeo – the Zhuhai International Circuit. Zhuhai is the latest addition to the Super Trofeo series of races and the first of two locations in China this year. However, the short gap of only 20 days between Fuji and Zhuhai will put a bit more pressure on racers, who usually begin training two weeks before races.
