YEONGAM (South Korea) BERNAMA: Former Malaysian Formula One driver Alex Yoong led from start to finish to win Race 2 of the season-opening Audi R8 LMS Cup at the Korea International Circuit.
Alex, who started on pole on a bright Sunday morning, zoomed into the lead right from the start. He won the 18-lap race in 33:20.814. He also the set the fastest lap time of 2:12.032 on the 5.615km track.
Swiss Rahel Frey was second in 33:21.889 while Hong Kong’s Marchy Lee finished third after clocking 33:25.660.
“My start was excellent and the first turn was critical. From then on, the race strategy was to hold on to the lead, not make any mistakes and not push the car too early because there was a need to preserve the tyres.
“Marchy was certainly quicker in the mid-sector so I had to make up in the back straight with speed by using the push-to-pass button,” said Alex, who finished third in Race One on Saturday.
The series will now head to the Fuji Speedway in Japan from July 26-27. The Sepang International Circuit (SIC) will play host from Aug 16-17.
