PETALING JAYA: Defending champions Tommy Lee and Damien Dielenberg scored a sensational come-from-behind win in Round Two of the Malaysian Super Series at the Sepang International Circuit.
The duo started from the back of the grid in the Touring Production class, but used their track experience to win the 50-minute endurance race in 50:01.637 after completing 18 laps in their Honda Integra machine on Sunday.
Chris Tan-Alan Wong finished second on board a Honda Civic in 50:02.474 while Desmond Yee-Ong Soo Yong came in third on board a Honda Integra in 50:21.459.
“It was really amazing that we won when everything went wrong for us before the race. Our second car was damaged in free practice when it was hit by another car, then our engine blew in the pit lane as we were about to start qualifying.
“We had no time to fix it and had to start from behind. I just pushed and pushed and amazingly, we won,” said Tommy.
Meanwhile, in the Malaysian Touring Car class, the partnership of Mark Darwin and Fitra Eri scored their second win this season after their opening-round win in March.
Darwin-Fitra finished the race in 51:13.980 to claim the win. Syafiq Ali finished second in 51:35.326 while James Veerapen rounded up the podium in 52:01.544.
