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

Leader of the pack in black
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.
