Yuey Tan: That was a good one!
The Dorr McElrea Racing Team finished a strong race weekend in the Carrera Cup Asia.
After a race 1 first corner blunder saw Tan limp home to a lucky 3rd place in category, he started race 2 in 2nd place due to new regulations in the PCCA 2013. This season, the PCCA take the two quickest laps from qualifying of a driver, and that is the grid position for race 1 and race 2.
“Today, the racing went a lot better than yesterday,” said Tan after the race on Sunday. Yesterday, we got hit in the first corner once more and it was tough to get it to the line though today was a totally different story. Things went well up until the last minute with Wayne but luckily we all survived!
“We kept the car going well for basically the full length of the race, and we know where we can improve! Had some great racing with Alif and Natasha Seatter which did fantastically on her first weekend in the PCCA. A positive weekend for us and a good weekend for the sport” Singapore’s Yuey Tan drove a consistent weekend, cementing his position in the top 3 in category, throughout every session at the Shanghai GP.
“This time last year, we were not in a good position so right now, its been the plan to get it to the chequered flag and get some good points on the board. It was a solid race weekend in every session and we have a good foundation to build on!”
“We are really looking forward to Zhuhai next month!” Tan current sits 2nd in the PCCA Class B standings 14 points adrift for category leader, Italian Egidio Perfetti of Team Mentos Racing, and 4 points ahead of Malaysian, Alif Hamdan.
