The TSF Asia All Star Challenge is taking place at the Penbay International Circuit in Taiwan this weekend. The first of three races was held this morning with a podium result for J-Fly Racing.
A four-car team has been entered by J-Fly Racing, run and prepared by Absolute Racing, with three older R8 LMS cars in the GTM class and one R8 LMS ultra in the GT3 class.
The #77 R8 LMS ultra was able to move up to fourth and maintained that position until moving up to third during the closing stages, ensuring a strong podium result for Lee, Frey and the team. They finished behind the race winning #11 GAINER DIXCEL Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 and the #55 Craft Racing Ford GT GT3.
Adderly Fong brought his #068 Audi R8 LMS across the line in fourth place. The #017 R8 LMS of Benjamin Lee and Carlo van Dam finished fifth, rounding out three Audis within the top five. The #666 Audi R8 LMS of Alex Chang and Evan Chen finished twelfth. These results were enough to claim an Audi 1-2 in the GTM class with the #068 winning ahead of the #017.
We wish the best of luck to J-Fly Racing (Absolute Racing) and their drivers.
