Hong Kong Touring Car round 2
Kenneth Look wins in the rain

Cheong's Speed driver Kenneth Look won his first race in the 3rd edition of the Hong Kong Touring Car Championship in appalling conditions after a superb drive. As Paul Poon of China Dragon Racing finished a close second, the two men will now share the lead in the drivers' championship race.

Heavy rain returned to the Zhuhai International Circuit shortly before the race. At the start the safety car was required to lead the cars around for 2 laps before the real action began. Polesitter Paul Poon was able to lead initially but it wasn't long before Ken Look took the lead.

Paul was not about to give up and the two men began a race long battle. The rain was not able to stop the two's charge and they soon opened up a big lead on the rest. Although Paul attempted to overtake Kenneth once again on the last lap, Kenneth was ready for it this time.

Cheong's Speed driver Rolly Sham finished third for the second race in succession, although he was 20 seconds down on the lead pair, this rookie super production driver has been very impressive this weekend.

China Dragon Racing's Kelvin So used his skill and experience in the rain to beat teammate Samson Fung, who qualified second in a newer car but spun early on. The other 2 China Dragon Racing drivers were not so lucky, Alex Lin and Andy Li both spun and failed to finish the race.

The only other finishers are the other 2 Cheong's Speed drivers Lau Keung- tak and Siu Tit-lung.

The third and fourth round will be held again at the Zhuhai International Circuit on 15 and 16 May.
