The start of Round 5 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2012.

Preview : Ultimate Test of Man and Machine as Inner Mongolia Beckons Shanghai. The Ordos International Circuit in Inner Mongolia may not be the best-known racetrack in the world, but its unique combination of elevations, tricky bends and constantly-changing surface conditions make it the ultimate test for every racing driver. For the 28-strong Porsche Carrera Cup Asia field, it could well produce some surprises as the region’s premier sportscar series contests Rounds 5 and 6 of its tenth season from July 6 to 8. Arriving with a score to settle with the 3.751km track is championship leader Alexandre Imperatori of PICC Team StarChase. The Shanghai-based Swiss had a tumultuous outing in 2011 when the series made its debut there, with an incident and a resulting penalty decimating his points advantage at a crucial time in the season. For reigning champion LKM Racing Team’s Keita Sawa and Team Jebsen’s Rodolfo Avila, currently second and fourth on the leaderboard respectively, it was a different story, with the pair taking a win apiece and Avila celebrating a maiden victory with his China Porsche dealer team. The prospect of racing at the Ordos track

is particularly daunting for the drivers for whom it will be new, such as Team Yongda Dongfang’s Benjamin Rouget of France who lies third in the championship race, but with the likelihood of track surface conditions changing lap-by-lap, previous experience could count for little. Fifth overall in the championship standings, and leading the Class B category by 12 points, is Egidio Perfetti of the Seminole Racing Team. New to the series this season, Perfetti has made an astonishing debut and it will be fascinating to see if he continues his impressive form in Ordos. Second in Class B is Wayne Shen of Modena Motorsport, who earned a podium finish in Ordos last season, however it was BBT driver Davide Rizzo who proved unbeatable. Rizzo took Class B pole position followed by two emphatic victories in the category, although this year the talented Italian will be competing for overall honours. continued on page 2

Qualifying :

Team Eagle – Jiejun & Junbaojie driver Martin Ragginger takes his maiden pole of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2012.

Ragginger Conquers Ordos Track to Grab Pole Ordos. Team Eagle – Jiejun & Junbaojie driver Martin Ragginger of Austria conquered the unforgiving Ordos International Circuit today to take his maiden Porsche Carrera Cup Asia pole. Ragginger was the man to finally put an end to the hitherto unbeaten run of Team StarChase racer, and championship points leader Alexandre Imperatori, who was second fastest in the session. Third quickest was reigning champion Keita Sawa of LKM Racing Team who overtook Team Jebsen’s Rodolfo Avila in the closing minutes of the session. In Class B, it was Asia Racing Team’s Huang Chu Han of China who set the fastest time, edging ahead of category points leader Egidio Perfetti of Seminole Racing Team. Third was OpenRoad Racing’s Francis Tjia. After heavy morning rain, the clouds lifted and the 30-minute session was run on a dry track. Ragginger was immedi-

ately quick after his team had worked overnight to fix his steering, bent during the last rounds in Zhuhai: “This is the first time (this season) we have had no issues. I hope to have a good start tomorrow. I set the fastest lap three times in that session, so I think we have very good pace. This is my first time here in Ordos, and we have to catch up in the points.” For Imperatori, Round 5 will be the first time he has not earned pole position since the Ordos rounds last season, but the prospect of starting alongside Ragginger has not dented his confidence: “We’re still on the front row, so I’m quite satisfied. We’re struggling with set up and the track, and not really feeling spot on overall. Points are most important this weekend, and Ragginger isn’t our main championship rival right now. Of course, if I see an opportunity to take the win, I’ll go for it though!” Likewise, Sawa was pleased with his outing, having changed the set up since yesterday’s practice. “I felt the car had better potential this time. On my attack lap, I made a small mistake at the chicane, but P3 is OK for us. The track is definitely better than last year.” Francis Tjia was surprised to be third quickest in Class B: “This whole weekend we’ve not been able to get it right. Maybe the circuit

is twisty and that doesn’t play to my strengths, but the car is not coming together at all. The track feels different to last year, when I felt hooked up, but this year I’m just sliding and sliding.” With the top eight separated by less than one second, qualifying was a hard-fought affair. Team Yongda Dongfang driver Benjamin Rouget of France initially topped the leaderboard, before Ragginger put in a scorching lap of 1:45.912, and Sawa climbed to second. Rouget remained with the front-runners, with series newcomer Pekka Saarinen of Finland. After a pit stop, Imperatori rocketed up to second with a lap of 1:45.725, with Avila climbing to fourth and then third, before Sawa’s late charge put him back down the order. Budweiser Team StarChase driver Tung Ho-Pin and Team Carrera Cup Asia guest driver Allan Simonsen will make up the fourth row of the grid. Round 5 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia will be run over 14 laps of the 3.751km Ordos International Circuit with the race results setting the grid for Round 6, but with the top eight finishers in reverse order.

Round 5 : Ragginger Tames Ordos to Take Maiden Series Victory Ordos. Team Eagle – Jiejun & Junbaojie driver Martin Ragginger of Austria tamed arguably the most difficult circuit on the 2012 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia calendar to take victory in Round 5 at the Inner Mongolian Ordos International Circuit. Second across the line was championship leader Alexandre Imperatori of PICC Team Starchase, with reigning champion Keita Sawa of LKM Racing Team earning the final podium spot. In Class B, talented Singaporean Yuey Tan took his first ever Porsche Carrera Cup Asia victory in the category for his Dorr McElrea Racing team. Tan drove superbly, overtaking first Asia Racing Team’s Huang Chu Han and then OpenRoad Racing’s Francis Tjia to take the lead. After five races, Imperatori maintains his position at the top of the championship leaderboard with a 22-point margin over second placed Sawa, and Ragginger leaps up the table from 6th to 3rd. Ragginger was thrilled to have put the bad luck which had plagued him earlier in the season firmly behind him, and was full of praise for his team having started the weekend with a new chassis after the multiple-car incident in Zhuhai: “Thank you to my team and all the mechanics who worked so hard to bring my car back to life! Off the start, I was on the limit and knew Alex (Imperatori) was there somewhere. We both controlled the race, and after seven laps had a good lead. I just kept focused and concentrated on controlling the race and not making any

(L to R) Alexandre Imperatori, Martin Ragginger, Keita Sawa celebrate on round 5 podium.

mistakes. For us, this is a great victory.” For Imperatori, who had won every race this season, second place was an unfamiliar position, but even before the start he was focused on championship points: “We can’t have it all the time, and the competition is very strong this year. We never expected to win all the races. I had a good start and tried to get up on the inside, but Martin rightly closed the door. In the first part of the race, I was able to stay with him, but it is very hard to overtake on this track and he was very strong. We brought it home and took the championship points, so I’m happy with that.” Sawa had a tough race, and was struggling to maintain consistency. For all three, Round 6 will be an even mightier challenge. After the race, Team Jebsen’s Rodolfo Avila, who had crossed the line in 4th, was handed a 30-second regulation infringement penalty which demoted him to 11th. With the top eight reversed on the grid for the start of Round 6, Team Betterlife’s Wang Jian Wai starts from pole position, with guest driver and series newcomer Adderly Fong alongside. On the second row are Davide Rizzo of BBT and Pekka Saarinen of PS Racing. Francis Tjia was another driver happy to put his unlucky season start behind him in Round 5, but was quick to admit that Tan had just been too quick for him. Huang, meanwhile, was plagued with mechanical glitches, but for Tan it was a victory he had worked long and hard for: “I’ve been competing for four years and this is my first win. I’m really pleased to have taken this victory, particularly on a circuit like Ordos. Francis and Huang were battling it out, and that is what we wanted. I was patient and just picked them off one by one. The car was great!”

Ragginger made a brilliant getaway from pole, holding Imperatori at bay, with Sawa, Avila and Team Yongda Dongfang’s Benjamin Rouget following. Early retirements were BBT’s Zheng Ting and OpenRoad by ART Motorsports’ Marcel Tjia, who suffered a puncture. By the end of lap 2 of the 14-lap race, Ragginger had pulled out a lead of more than a second, but Imperatori stayed with him. The early stages also saw the retirement of Team Carrera Cup Asia guest driver Allan Simonsen of Denmark, who had been running 8th overall, and Rouget. For Rouget, who had been 3rd in the championship points, the retirement dealt a heavy blow to his title aspirations. In Class B, it was points-leader Egidio Perfetti of Seminole Racing Team who was leading the pack, until a spin put him down the order and Huang took over the lead until lap 8, when Francis Tjia stormed past. Perfetti eventually crossed the line 17th, but maintains his position at the top of the Class B championship leaderboard. The closing stages of the race saw PS Racing’s Pekka Saarinen increase his race-long pressure on Budweiser Team Starchase driver Tung Ho-Pin, who was suffering from a bout of stomach flu, and Fong close up to Rizzo, but neither was able to get by. However, Tan did find a way to pass on the 3.751 km track, and dived past Huang to go second in Class B, before making his move on Tjia just two laps from the chequered flag to take victory.

(Top down) • (L to R) The Round 5 Class B podium: PCCA Medal winner Li Chao; Francis Tjia, 2nd; Yuey Tan, 1st; and Huang Chu Han, 3rd. • Team Betterlife driver Wang Jian Wei in action in Round 5. • Budweiser Team StarChase driver Tung HoPin finished fourth in Round 5. • Benjamin Rouget from Team Yongda Dongfang in Round 5.


Guest driver Allan Simonsen took victory after charging through the entire 27-strong field in Round 6 of Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2012 at the Ordos International Circuit.

Round 6 : Simonsen Triumphs after Wet Race Thriller Ordos. Guest driver Allan Simonsen took victory in Round 6 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia today after a monumental charge through the entire 27-strong field. Second was BBTs Davide Rizzo, followed across the line by Team Betterlife’s Wang Jian Wei of China. Both drivers led the race at one stage, and both had looked good to take the win. In Class B, Wayne Shen of Modena Motorsports took the victory, with Seminole Racing Team’s Egidio Perfetti second and Francis Tjia of OpenRoad Racing taking his second podium finish of the weekend. Despite finishing in 11th in Round 6, PICC Team StarChase driver Alexandre Imperatori retains his grip on the overall championship race with 106 points, with reigning champion Keita Sawa of LKM Racing Team second on 85. Team Eagle – Jiejun & Junbaojie driver Martin

Ragginger is third, while Benjamin Rouget of Team Yongda Dongfang and Tung Ho-Pin of Budweiser Team StarChase are tied in 4th position, each with 60 points. In Class B, Perfetti retains the lead with a six point margin over Shen, with Francis Tjia third. Simonsen was understandably thrilled with the win: “I didn’t finish the first race, so started 27th. I didn’t think it was possible to go from 27th to 1st, but I never gave up. The car felt good, and the wet suited it 100%. I pushed probably 110%, and went off the track several times I think. As the track started to dry, it wasn’t as fast but I could see from the pit boards that I was in a position to challenge for a win. It feels really good, and this is a fantastic championship!”. For Rizzo, this was his first ever race in the wet, and he admitted to some trepidation as he saw the rain begin to fall: “My start wasn’t good and I lost a couple of places, but then I started to push – more than the limit. By the end I was on the limit with the tyres, so didn’t want to risk it.” Wang Jian Wei was pleased to finish on the podium after an incredibly eventful race where he had looked good for the win: “I wanted to push to extend my lead, but I braked late.

That would have been OK in the dry, but in the wet conditions, I went off. I worked my way back though, so I’m happy to take 3rd.” Wayne Shen was grateful to his engineer for finding him the perfect set up for the conditions, but Perfetti had mixed feelings about the Ordos weekend: “I had a few problems with set up, and I seem to have developed a tendency to spin – 360 degrees!” With the reverse grid once again resulting in some truly phenomenal track action, there was yet more drama as the heavens opened before the start and Round 6 was declared a wet race. Wang got away well from pole, defending from an aggressive Adderly Fong, who was then side-by-side with Budweiser Team StarChase driver Tung Ho-Pin as the pair faced down for second, with Tung prevailing. Martin Ragginger, winner of Round 5, and championship leader Imperatori were right on the back of reigning champion Keita Sawa in 4th, allowing Wang and Tung to pull away at the front. continued on page 7


continued from page 6 Tung quickly caught up to Wang but behind them, Fong had dived past Sawa and was now being chased by the daunting trio of Sawa, Ragginger and Imperatori. Rizzo, though, had begun his charge and overtook first Imperatori then Ragginger, before homing in on Sawa, lights flashing. Lap 4 saw Rizzo get by Sawa to go 4th, but the Italian already had Fong firmly in his sights and made his move the following lap. Ragginger was piling the pressure onto Sawa while Imperatori did likewise to the Austrian, with Pekka Saarinen keeping the front-runners well within reach. Then disaster struck as Ragginger and Imperatori made contact and spun. Both rejoined, but the incident had put them down the order and they eventually finished 9th and 11th respectively. Wang had once again pulled out a gap from Tung, and had a margin of more than two seconds by the end of lap 5. However, Rizzo was like a bullet, and overtook Tung on lap 6 to go 2nd. While all eyes were on the pair, like a bolt from the blue came Simonsen, who had been picking his way through the highspeed pack and suddenly leapt past Sawa and Saarinen to go 5th. As the track began to dry, the handling of many of the front-running cars began to change, handing a new set of challenges to the field. Next it was the turn of Team Basetex’ Zhang Da Sheng to shine, and the Chinese driver closed in on Sawa, overtaking with impressive precision to go 6th. Out in front, Wang was working hard to extend his lead, and had built a margin of more than three seconds from Rizzo midway through the race. His efforts were reduced to nothing in

a second though, as a small error in braking was punished harshly. He spun, but managed to control the car and rejoin the race ahead of Saarinen. That handed the lead to Rizzo, with Tung, Simonsen, Wang, Saarinen, Zhang and Sawa all still fighting hard. Lap 10 saw Zhang get by Tung before running wide and rejoining behind Wang, who was attacking Tung hard. Tung defended well, but at the front of the pack, Simonsen had decimated Rizzo’s margin, and overtook the Italian to grab the lead. Wang finally got the better of Tung to take 3rd before the flag. Zhang also got by Tung before the finish line to take 4th. Despite the challenges of the Ordos track, wet conditions, and a 27-strong field, all but one of the cars completed the 14 lap race,

testament to the extraordinarily high standard of racing the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has attained. The weekend represented an extreme test of both man and machine, and the field more than rose to the challenge. The incredible tenth Porsche Carrera Cup Asia season continues at the end of the August when it leaves China for the first time this year with Rounds 7 and 8 at Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit from August 30 to September 2. As this weekend proved, with such a competitive field, predictions are pointless as the form book could well be turned on its head once again.

Porsche Carrera Cup Asia quote of the weekend: “I didn’t finish the first race, so started 27th. I didn’t think it was possible to go from 27th to 1st, but I never gave up. The car felt good, and the wet suited it 100%. I pushed probably 110%, and went off the track several times I think. “ - Allan Simonsen
