X-ONE Racing claims four class wins at Suzuka
X-ONE Racing were in action at Suzuka in Japan this weekend with a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 car entered in the Blancpain GT Series Asia and a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo in the one-make series. Indonesian driver Andrew Haryanto, leader of the Super Trofeo Am class, drove both cars and was partnered in the GT3 by Samson Chan from Hong Kong.
Double pole for Haryanto
Haryanto was flying in qualifying on Saturday morning, taking pole position in the Am class for both the Super Trofeo and GT3 races later that day.
Am Class domination in GT3 and Super Trofeo
A super successful day for Haryanto and X-One on Saturday was completed by another Am victory in the Super Trofeo class and an outstanding win in the Am class of the day’s main race, the Blancpain GT Series Asia event. Haryanto started the X-ONE car and ran comfortably just outside the top ten until handing over to Chan on lap fourteen. The driver from Hong Kong took the car to the flag in 17th, sixteen seconds ahead of the next placed Am driver.
Rain on Sunday couldn’t stop Haryanto and Chan from winning again in the GT3 race. After qualifying 21st and 3rd in class Chan had climbed up to 16th when he handed the X-ONE Lamborghini to Haryanto. A quick pit-stop for wet tyres moved Haryanto up to 2nd in class and a lap later he stole the Am lead from the KCMG Audi. Making no mistakes in the tricky conditions Haryanto took the flag in 10th place, winning the Am class once again.
The Indonesian then jumped in the X-ONE Super Trofeo car and claimed another win in the Am class of the Lamborghini series, despite starting from the back of the grid after sitting out the second qualifying session.
The Asian racing season now takes a break but X-ONE will be back in action in August at the Fuji International Speedway.
