Wegberg, Germany - Tuesday, 06.08.2019
The success story is ongoing. The fourth race event of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia took Leipert Motorsport to the Korea International Circuit at Yeongam. The 5.610-kilometre route was a great success for the team from Wegberg!
The first podium and Top-5 result in the first race
At this weekend two Lamborghini were entered in the PRO/AM category by Leipert Motorsport. The starting number #7 were Brendon Leitch (23, New Zealand) and Jake Rattenbury (25, Wales). For the first race Leitch scored the pole position in the PRO/AM classification and P2 overall. The first race was an exciting one, in which the New Zealander however lost a place at the start. When his team mate Rattenbury took over, he dropped back another place after hard fights. But: second place in the class! Cup and podium in fourth place overall.
The Lamborghini #77 was shared by Dan Wells (28, UK/Hong Kong) and Philip Kadoorie (Hong Kong). Wells drove the Leipert Motorsport Lamborghini at the start of the race, but initially lost two places. Four laps later he skilfully took one back. After the change Kadoorie showed exciting racing fights. Unfortunately, he lost a place and crossed the finish line in fourth place in the PRO-AM ranking.
Skilful class win in Sunday race
Jake Rattenbury was the starting driver in the Lamborghini with start number #7 on Sunday. Starting from seventh place, he made up a place directly and was able to hold on to it successfully until the driver change. The 23-year-old Brendon Leitch took over the wheel halfway through the race and showed the other drivers who is the boss: Through skilful duels he manoeuvred himself to fourth place - and crossed the finish line in second place in the PRO/AM ranking. However, thanks to a subsequent time penalty for the race winner Rattenbury / Leitch got the first place. A well-deserved, belated class win for a fair and
exciting race! Chapeau!
Also the two Leipert Motorsport drivers Wells / Kadoorie showed an excellent performance. Started in seventh place, Kadoorie first dropped back. But it became really exciting after the pitstop: Dan Wells moved up to P8 through the stop and pushed up to P6 during his stint. This was a great fourth place in the PRO/AM ranking.
The class victory for the MOTUL supported team Leipert Motorsport was well deserved. Hard work and fair racing are always being rewarded in the end.
This weekend the team from Wegberg will go on with the ADAC GT4 Germany race with an AMG GT4 in Zandvoort (09.-11.08.2019) & with a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo to the Belcar 24h race in Zolder.
