Blancpain GT Series Asia: Lee/Thong win at Shanghai, Yoong/Au on podium
Successful fifth race weekend for Phoenix Racing in the Blancpain GT Series Asia at Shanghai: Marchy Lee and Shaun Thong celebrated their second victory this season in race one, Alex Yoong and Alex Au finished both races on podium.

Changeable conditions made for turbulent scenes in the first race. On a damp track, a competitor spun. Marchy Lee who had started in position three in his Audi R8 LMS under Audi Hong Kong’s entry had to dodge him and dropped to eighth place. Lee fought back to third place up until the pit stops. Shaun Thong took over the cockpit and the top spot when the race leader was forced to pit for a drive-through penalty. For Lee and Thong, it was the second victory this season.  In race two, the duo in the golden Audi R8 LMS took sixth place and moved to the top of the points standings before the finale in China (October 20–21).  

Points were also scored by their teammates Alex Yoong and Alex Au: In positions three and two in the Audi running under the Audi R8 LMS Cup entry, they finished on podium twice.
