Spectacular Season Finale Set for Asian Le Mans Series Zhuhai
The spectacular season finale of the 2010 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia will see the region's premier GT championship support the Asian Le Mans Series for the first time, from November 5-7, at China's 4.3km Zhuhai International Circuit.
The Porsche Carrera Cup Asia's banner year, which includes a record field of 23 of the region's best sportscar specialists, will come to a thrilling conclusion in the picturesque southern Chinese city.
Rounds 11&12 will be in support of the 1,000km Asian Le Mans Series race, which is also the third and final race of the inaugural Le Mans Intercontinental Cup. Competing in the Le Mans International Cup will be the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid, which impressed at the Nurburgring 24-hour race earlier this year, leading the overall classification for more than eight hours.
The 2010 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has been one of the toughest and most competitive seasons to date, with intense on-track battles in both the professional Class A and the non-professional Class B categories.
During the series' most recent round in support of the 2010 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPRE GRAND PRIX, SC Global Racing driver Craig Baird earned his first two Porsche Carrera Cup Asia victories and seized the championship lead by four points from defending champion Christian Menzel of Team StarChase. With four races to go, and a field hungry for victory, the championship is far from decided and all bets are off for the season's four remaining races.
In Class B, Team PCS Racing driver Mok Weng Sun extended his unbroken winning streak in Singapore, and looks set to complete a perfect season. But with fierce competition from the bumper field - particularly from his closest on-track rival Ringo Chong - the stage is set for an epic end to the season.
The 2010 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has raced on some of the region's premier racing circuits, including in support of both the 2010 Formula 1 Chinese and Singapore Grands Prix, at a special Fascination Porsche weekend in Beijing and as part of the Pan Delta Super Racing Festival in Zhuhai. The series will return to the Shanghai International Circuit for two rounds at the China Touring Car Championship this month, prior to returning to Zhuhai for the 2010 season finale.
