A Memorable Double Weekend for Mok

On form Mok Weng Sun made it a memorable weekend at the Sepang International Circuit as he sealed a double win in the GT3 Asia Round 2 which was part of the Asian Festival of Speed.

The Singaporean driving for Porsche Club Singapore Racing won Race 2 with a total time of 23:27.662s, 1.271s ahead of Team Machine's Eddie Yau.

Coming in third was Malaysian Tunku Hammam Sulong who recorded a total time of 23:30.387s.

Mok showed his supremacy again by pulling out a lead even after the safety car came out to regroup the pack as SPS Racing's Siu Tit Lung spun out.

"I did not change the setting of the car from Race 1's win and in this round had a good start and had a good run throughout the race. However after the safety car was deployed I was ready for some competition from the back," said Mok.

"I kept my head down and continued to push as hard as I could. Overall, I had a one pole position and two wins so it has definitely been a good weekend for me," said Mok.

As for Yau the second place finish was the best he could manage as Mok was too fast to catch and Tunku Hammam kept pressing him.

"I had a really good start. I was close to Mok but Tunku Hammam kept the pressure up so I had to do whatever I could to stay second even after the safety car went in," said the Hong Kong driver.

As for Tunku Hammam, the podium finish in Race 2 made his weekend worthwhile after a drive through penalty bogged down his hopes in Race 1.

"Today was definitely better than yesterday. After Turn 2 I was third and I pushed the car but not too much as I had to keep my tyres. After the safety car was deployed I tried hard to make it to second but I couldn't and I also didn't want to lose the third position.," said Tunku Hammam.

"There have been a few mishaps this weekend but overall it was great and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season," he added.
