The young driver in Audi #5 sporting the colors of Audi Hong Kong had previously clinched pole position in qualifying. In the first race he held the lead, withstood the pressure from his rivals and in doing so celebrated a start-to-finish victory. In the second race he finished eleventh. He shares the TCR Cup championship lead with Abdul Kaathir after two of six race weekends.
The race weekend went less well for Thong’s two team mates: the entertainer and ex-swimmer Alex Fong, also competing under the Audi Hong Kong banner, spun on cold tires and was unable to finish the first race, in the second race he finished twelfth. SK Thong failed to finish both races.
