Shanghai, 24 July- The second round of the APAC series of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli took place at the Shanghai circuit this weekend as part of the Ferrari Racing Days, with exciting racing and plenty of overtaking from the 458 Challenge cars. Both Races were won by Anthony Liu. Taking part in Race 2, starting, given his vast racing experience, from the back of the grid, was Giancarlo Fisichella, the Scuderia Ferrari driver, having a one-off drive, helping to make this a truly unique event.
Race 1 was won by Anthony Liu, who dominated from start to finish in a competition that saw plenty of overtaking as hot conditions made life complicated for competitors. The Chinese driver took the flag ahead of Byron Tong (Hong Kong) and Hisamori Hayashi (Japan) who fought hard all race long. In the Coppa Shell, Siwon Ryu (South Korea) took the victory, capitalising on his strong showing in qualifying on Saturday. Second and third were Tiger Wu (Taipei) and Gregory Teo (Singapore.)
In the second race, the Trofeo Pirelli category produced again a victory for Anthony Liu after a close fight with Giancarlo Fisichella, off classifications. Behind them in second and third place were Jeffrey Lee (Taipei) and Byron Tong. In the Coppa Shell, the win went to Steve Wyatt (Australia), with the other podium places going to Tiger Wu (Taipei) and Gregory Teo (Singapore).
Competitors in the APAC series of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli will be back in action at the Shanghai circuit over the weekend of 14 August for the third round of the season.
