As we are now over halfway through the season, the teams and drivers at Bentley Team Absolute have been seeking to extract more performance out of their cars and themselves. The team had a mixture of emotions this weekend in Rounds 5 and 6 at Zhuhai Circuit in China with a podium finish and an incident.

After an impressive start in race two, Weiron Tan (MY) and Andrew Kim (KR) in car #5 crossed the line in fourth position and secured second place in the GT Asia Cup Trophy, but car #9 piloted by Adderly Fong (HK) and Vutthikorn Inthraphuvasak (TH) came in to contact with another vehicle and wasn’t able to continue.

Adderly Fong, car #9:

This weekend, my team mate Vutthikorn and I switched to car #9 Hard Memory Bentley Continental GT3. Our sister car [#5] qualified first, making it a Bentley Team Absolute front row lockout. We qualified P2 on Saturday, not the best we could’ve got and unfortunately got hit in the rear and pushed into a wall on Saturday. I’m frustrated for the team. Our sister car with Andrew and Weiron did well on both days finishing P5 and then P4.

Fabien Fior, Team Director:

We did quite well last time here in Zhuhai as qualifying results demonstrated. I expected to take another step forward in terms of performance and race results. Adderly and Vutthikorn showed that they can be a constant threat for podium positions while Andrew and Weiron had a great weekend with two top five finishes and a podium.
