CTCC Race 4 qualifying Ford team: Conservative strategy

After two very successful races in Shanghai, Changan Ford Racing team recently arrived at Beijing Goldenport International Circuit (BGIC) for CTCC race 4. This weekend's Beijing qualifying was divided into two groups, with Ken Look (Team LF) and his teammate Song Jiancheng qualifying 1st and 2nd. Liang Daming from Hua Yang racing team qualified 3rd. The Ford team's best grid position was in the 3rd row, Martin Cao. Tengyi Jiang, Andy Yan and Rainey He qualified 8th, 11th and 13th, respectively. The qualifying results gave the team a very tough race on Sunday.

CTCC moved to Beijing for Race 4 with limited practice sessions available for the teams; the Ford team got most of its set-up done on Saturday morning. The effect of the newly tested rear wing was affirmed and Andy Yan said:"The rear wing can give us a more steady performance." Three Ford Focus cars used the rear wing in the qualifying session. When qualifying started at 2:40pm, Ford driver Andy Yan & Rainey He experienced technical problems and headed back to pit lane, with qualifying results short of expectations. Martin Cao did a good job by confirming his 3rd row grid position.

Changan Ford racing team is leading the points table with 34 points, and the team has performed very well recently. We expect the Ford drivers will bring good results on Sunday.
