Sant’Agata Bolognese/Shanghai, October 20th, 2016.
The Shanghai International Circuit has hosted the sixth and final round of the GT Asia Series and has witnessed the victory of the challenging championship reserved to Gran Turismo race cars. The victorious title was seized by the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 of FFF Racing Team, operated by the two young talented Italian drivers members of the Lamborghini Squadra Corse GT3 Junior Program: Andrea Amici and Edoardo Liberati.
During the demanding day, which was characterised by two different races under a pouring rain, the two drivers managed to confirm their title victory by arriving seventh in Race 1 and third in Race 2. Their journey had not been easy, especially considering the long and thorough battle they had endured with the Ferrari 488 GT3, driven by Anthony Liu and Davide Rizzo.
Victories were not to end as fast for the Lamborghini team. Indeed, Race 2 saw the triumph of a second Lamborghini Huracan GT3. The car also came from the successful FFF Racing Team and was driven by the amazingly fast Jeron Mul and Marco Mapelli from Lamborghini Motorsport department.
The final victory of the GT Asia Series by Andrea Amici and Edoardo Liberati was slowly secured throughout a long season of conquered podiums: second in Korea, third in Thailand, second in Okayama, third and second at Fuji, second and third in Shanghai. A solid consistency by the two drivers, topped with the reliable and optimal performance of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 provided the perfect combination to bring home the demanded Asian title.
A comment of pride and satisfaction was left by Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport of Automobili Lamborghini:
“We are extremely proud of this very first championship that we have secured with our young Huracán GT3. Our car witnessed its debut in the GT Asia Series and so far has only been competing for a year in the Customer Racing. Our pride also comes from our drivers, who have been trained and raised from when they were younger inside the Lamborghini Squadra Corse. Andrea Amici and Edoardo Liberati started off racing in our one-make series Lamborghini Super Trofeo and are now competing thanks to our GT3 Junior Program for talented drivers. A warm thank you also goes to the FFF Racing Team for their extraordinary work throughout the entire season”
