Craft Bamboo Racing dominate GT Asia qualifying

Friday, September 25, 2015

Both of Craft Bamboo Racing's Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3's were the pick of the bunch during the two qualifying sessions for rounds eight and nine of the 2015 GT Asia Series.

Continuing the teams Free Practice domination, in Q1 it was the #88 car of Frank Yu and Richard Lyons who secured top honours just ahead of last years championship winning Clearwater Ferrari 458. Its sister #99 car of Darryl O'Young and Daniel Lloyd only qualified in a difficult mid field position for tomorrows race.
In Q2 however fortune was on the side of the #99 car when the end of a red flag period only left Lloyd enough time for a single run to beat then then pole sitting Bentley. Evolution Academy driver LLoyd, who is sitting in again for the injured fellow Evolution Academy driver Jonathan Venter, ultimately crossed the line four hundredths of a second faster to claim pole. In an almost mirror image of Q1 the #88 finished eighth.

This weekend's double header will be crucial for O'Young's intention of securing the championship just four points behind the leaders and with just one more double header meeting left in Thailand in a months time.
