FFF Racing by ACM continued its impressive season in the Super Trofeo Asia Series at the weekend in Buriram, Thailand with another victory and further podium positions in what was the second round of the championship. With the third victory of the season Andrea Amici and Artur Janosz extend their championship advantage to 12 points from teammates Jack Bartholomew and James Pull.
Amici and Janosz qualified the #63 Lamborghini Huracan ST in third position for Saturday’s race and went on to claim the lower podium step. Amici took the start, battling hard with the eventual race winner Ben Gersekowski through the opening corners.
The Italian remained in contention for the victory, but a pitstop violation resulted in a stop-go penalty and this dropped Janosz down to fourth in the second half of the race. The pole recovered to finish third and maintain the lead in the Pro standings. Teammates Jack Bartholomew and James Pull started from fourth position and enjoyed a trouble-free race to second position.
The second race of the weekend brought Janosz and Amici their third win from four starts in the championship as they withstood pressure from the previous day’s winners to take the chequered flag one-second clear of the #2 entry after 50-minutes of hard racing.
Janosz made a great start from fourth position, taking the lead of the race from Richard Muscat by the third turn and following a brief safety car intervention, withstood sustained pressure for the lead before handing over to Amici.
Emerging ahead of main rival Gersekowski, Amici battled hard for position, briefly losing the lead before regaining the place, one he would retain to the chequered flag. Bartholomew meanwhile gained a spot to run in third position to make it a double podium once again for FFF Racing.
The team now begin preparations for the next round of the championship which takes place next month at Suzuka, Japan.
