Second round of new GTSSC postponed in mainland China

Wednesday, June 02, 2021

Having secured a much deserved second place finish, before being elevated to the top step after a post-race penalty for the chequered flag taking Porsche, Uno Racing’s David Pun was hoping to continue his winning ways at the second round of the GT Super Sprint Challenge Series at Ningbo International Speed park this weekend.

Having raced competitively for many years in GT4 and other brands of GT3, the opening round of the Series from Shanghai in early May was Pun’s first racing experience of his new Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 having only taken delivery of it just over a week before the opening round via AMR's new regional strategic partner - MSAA.

All of that has however now been dashed after the Federation of Automobile and Motorcycle Sports of China (CAMF) recently suspended all motor sport in mainland China following the large loss of life to competitors in a recent ultra marathon event in north-west China.

Just how a tragic outcome in a running event has any bearing upon a motor sport event we are not quite sure, but the reality is that racing has come to another stop in China and there isn't a lot anyone can do about it so at this time - everything is suspended.
