GT Asia Series 2013
Twin Ring Motegi – Qualifying 1 & 2
Stefan Mucke time in Qualifying 1 for Team R8 LMS Ultra whilst reigning GT Asia Series Champion, Mok Weng Sun took pole for Q2 at Twin Ring Motegi. In GTM, Asai Akihiro set the fastest time in Q1 in the Audi R8 LMS whilst Tohjiro Azuma went fastest in the Ferrari 458 Challenge in Q2.
The weather did not hold up, as it started to drizzle midway through the first Qualifying session out at turn five and it proceeded to get progressively wetter through Q2.
Mucke is sharing driving duties with Frank Yu in Craft Racing’s Aston Martin Vantage V12 GT3. Yu and his team decided not to go out on new tyres in Q2 but to use Mucke’s used tyres from Q1 and they then pitted after setting a few fast laps during the damp conditions. The team will start in fifth for race 2.
