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.

The final Formula Masters China race of the Zhuhai weekend was a real nail biter with team mates Matthew Solomon and Yuan Bo disputing the lead with Dan Wells. Solomon hounded Wells for the first two thirds of the race which allowed Yuan Bo to tow up to the leaders and take advantage of Solomon of being slowed in his attempts to pass. Yuan Bo was able to take second which allowed Wells to escape whilst the Eurasia team mates disputed the runner up place. Solomon, with championship points leader James Munro finishing in 7th, was happy to have reduced the points gap with one event, three races to go in Shanghai next month. Yuan Bo was ecstatic to take his first overall podium.
