Craft-Bamboo Racing’s Christina Nielsen and Darryl O’Young achieve their second podium of the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia after an incredible fight through the field starting from 14th position in Race 2. In the #88 car, Alessio Picariello scored his third straight pole position, but despite setting the fastest lap in Race 2, was unable to achieve another win after an unlucky safety car intervention followed by track limit drive-through penalty for the #88 entry near the end of the race ended their challenge. Melvin Moh had put the #55 entry in a competitive position after a great stint, handing the car to teammate Daniel Au in 4th place before his fight with the chasing pack.
In the GT4 class, newcomer for the Fuji weekend was David Pun, who made his mark by together scoring a victory on his debut after a great drive with Jean-Marc Merlin in Race 1. Jean-Marc Merlin adds another win to his tally, showing his strong and consistent form this year.
