Rainbow Fuji Challenges Asia’s Longest Straight Lamborghini- Blancpain Super Trofeo Asian Challenge Race 2 Ends Successfully (July 15 Official Website Update)

From July 14th to 15th, 2012, under the mist of Japan’s first peak, Mt. Fuji, the Fuji International Circuit ushered in a special race. With the engine’s bloody roar, 18 Lamborghini Super Trofeo raced through the rain to the finish line, successfully completing the second leg of the 2012 Lamborghini- Blancpain Super Trofeo Asian Challenge. As early as the end of May, the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia has witnessed the extreme popularity of this event. This weekend, Italian supercar maker Lamborghini and luxury watch manufacturing giant Blancpain injected pure Italian-style passion and vitality into the mysterious Far East.

   Most of the drivers participating in this race are almost completely new to the Fuji International Circuit, which also marks that this circuit will pose unprecedented challenges for Lamborghini drivers. Since opening to the public in 1965, Fuji Speedway has become a household name in the racing world. Michael Schumacher, Tom Christensen and Lewis Hamilton, who have won F3 and F1 championships, have competed at Fuji Speedway.
   Mr. Cristiano Inverni, head of the Lamborghini- Blancpain Super Trofeo Asian Challenge, said: ‘This weekend’s race is a test for all drivers. Fuji Circuit has higher requirements for drivers and has the longest in Asia. Straight road, so the speed is faster. At the same time, because there are more curves on the uphill and downhill roads, it further increases the difficulty of the game. Although it is rainy, this weather condition makes the two games more exciting. As we continue to adjust our hands to the track, their outstanding performance surprises us all. ‘

   The race in Japan is very unique to Blancpain. This event demonstrates the importance that Blancpain attaches to the Japanese market, and also marks the leading position of the Blancpain brand in Japan. Alain Delamuraz, Vice President and Marketing Director of Blancpain said at the race site, ‘We are very excited to experience the charm of this race in person at the mysterious and passionate Fuji International Circuit. ‘
   Japanese team Terashima Shigeru and Yasuoka Hideto of the No. 10 car played at home this time. Although they are only amateur drivers, their goal is to win the championship. However, the champions of the two races in Sepang, the 37th gold combination Anthony Liu and Davide Rizzo are still the biggest winners in Japan.

   Turning on the headlights and activating the wipers, all drivers started Saturday’s first race on a foggy rainy day. Due to the rain on the track and the tire temperature rising too slowly, Anthony Liu, the No. 37 car from the pole, made a mistake, and when he returned to the track, he had fallen to the end of the team, but after four laps he even chased many cars. In the second place, Cheng Fei, the seventh driver, gave up the second place. From the 10th driver, Yuan Bo / Chen Conan, remained in the lead position before changing drivers, but Anthony Liu, who later took the lead, followed the lead with the time difference when changing hands with Davide, and took the lead until the end of the race. Won the championship. The second team to cross the finish line was the Japanese team Terashima Shigeru and Yasuoka Hideto from the amateur group, while the third place was Yuan Bo / Chen Conan from the amateur group. Speaking of the differences between Sepang and Fuji, Chen Conan said: ‘Sepang is a great challenge to the endurance of drivers due to the hot weather. Although Fuji’s circuit is cool, the technical requirements for drivers on rainy days higher.’
   The semi-amateur game was played on Sunday afternoon. At the beginning of the game, the weather gradually turned fine, but due to the morning showers, the slippery road conditions made the whole game more uncertain. The No. 9 car from Malaysia, Rizal RAMLI, took the lead for the first time in the race, while the No. 37 car Anthony Liu has been following closely. In the end, Car No. 37 Anthony Liu won again, only 5 seconds ahead of Car No. 9.
