The heat was on as racers arrived at the Zhuhai International Circuit for the third stop of the Super Trofeo Asia series of races hosted by Italian super sports car maker Automobili Lamborghini and Swiss luxury watchmaker Blancpain.

Following a cool stint in the foothills of Japan's Mount Fuji, racers returned to the tropics and southern China's Zhuhai International Circuit for their next race. Fast on the heels of the challenging Fuji track, the racers were in for a treat with this intense, former Formula One race track, China's first standard international circuit and second only to the Shanghai International Circuit in terms of popularity.

This stop also coincided with the annual Pan Delta Super Racing Festival, one of the most loved motorsports events in China's racing calendar. The stands were packed with spectators on this first day of racing and the Super Trofeo featured prominently in the lineup of races in the Pan Delta, adding to the excitement of this diverse and impressive gathering of racers and vehicles. The Zhuhai stop of Super Trofeo Asia exemplifies the goal of this series of races – to give 'gentlemen drivers' as well as professionals a chance to battle it out in the ultimate racetrack environment.
