Double victory for Lamborghini
Squadra Corse in Suzuka
Martin Kodric and Dennis Lind extended their Blancpain GT Series Asia championship lead by claiming a first victory aboard their FFF Racing Team Lamborghini Huracán GT3 in Suzuka’s second race.
The consistency of three podiums had helped Lind and Kodric top the GT3 standings prior to round six, but the duo finally broke their victory duck in today’s 60-minute race to extend their overall advantage at 2018’s halfway mark. Next up it’s Fuji Speedway, which hosts rounds seven and eight on July 21/22.
Martin Kodric, #19 FFF Racing Team Lamborghini Huracán GT3: “We knew it would be a tough race starting from P5. I did everything I could: I made a really good start and was alongside my team-mate Marco [Mapelli], but obviously we didn’t want to do anything silly so I backed off and focused on maintaining the pace. We were well positioned at the pitstops but knew the penalty would cost us time, so Dennis [Lind] did a great job to move up the order”.
Marco Mapelli and Hiroshi Hamaguchi top the PRO-AM standings as they claimed the fourth position and the class victory in race two, sharing the wheel of the second FFF Racing by ACM Lamborghini car.
