James Winslow, Pu Jun Jin and John Hartshorne finished in second place in Eurasia Motorsport’s Oreca Nissan LMP2 at the Shanghai round of the Asian Le Mans Series, Winslow setting a new Asian Le Mans lap record in the process. Pu Jun Jin and Oak’s David Cheng entertained their home crowd with a hard battle fought like a ten lap sprint race. John Hartshorne started the race and did well to finish his stint on the same lap as Oak’s David Cheng. After the first pit stops Pu Jun Jin was on the tail of Cheng and desperately trying to find a way past to put the car back on the lead lap. The clearly faster Eurasia driver was frustrated by the defensive Cheng, at one point both drivers driving off the track at the final hairpin and then going side by side though the last turn. Once Cheng pitted Pu Jun Jin was released and was able to demonstrate his true pace. Winslow then took over for a double stint to the end of the race, setting the fastest lap in the process.

In another exciting Asian Le Mans qualifying session Ho Pin Tung set initial pole position before James Winslow, in the Eurasia Oreca Nissan, set a stunning 1m 39.850 lap. However the time was removed due to corner cutting at the chicane. Tung, who had pitted along with Winslow, rejoined to record 1m 39.860 on his last lap whilst Winslow just fell short with a 1m 40.002. The race starts at 3pm on Saturday with John Hartshorne behind the wheel. Chinese driver, Pu Jun Jin, has set some impressive times in practice and is hoping for a good result in front of his home crowd.
