The penultimate round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia brought many spectators to the Shanghai International Circuit last weekend. Together with the two PRO/AM duos Leitch / Vignali and Wells / Kadoorie, Leipert Motorsport was happy about two exciting races and the second and third places in the Saturday and Sunday races.
Wegberg, Germany - Monday, 09.09.2019
The Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia weekend number five in the metropolis of Shanghai was a thrilling one. On a length of around 5.451 kilometres, the Lamborghini reached top speeds of over 270 kilometres per hour. A track that was perfect for the Leipert Motorsport drivers this weekend and provided further podium successes.
Second and third in first race - Leipert Motorsport completes PRO/AM podium
This weekend, the Leipert Motorsport Lamborghini drivers played a twin hide-and-seek game like in the German movie "The double Lottchen". While Brendon Leitch and Massimo Vignali in the Lamborghini #7 set the second- and third-best times in qualifying, Dann Wells and Philip Kadoorie in their sister Lamborghini #77 did the same - but in reverse order.
The Saturday race started under thick clouds and rain. On the starting positions two and three of the PRO/AM the two Leipert Lamborghini entered the first race. While the #7 duo struggled with the weather caprioles and dropped back to seventh overall, the two #77 drivers pushed forward to fourth place. Nevertheless: Both reached the PRO/AM podium! #77 Wells/Kadoorie finished second and #7 Leitch/Vignali third. The drivers treat each other to this success and let the corks pop on the podium, which was cheered on by the team!
Again on the podium with second and third place also in the second race
Sunday race: Both Leipert Motorsport Lamborghini duos started again from the PRO/AM starting positions two and three into the second race - but in reverse order. While the two #7 drivers had to struggle with the weather conditions the day before, a motivated Brendon Leitch showed himself in the second half of the race: He was able to beat the rivals and in the end he overtook his sister Lamborghini #77. Leitch and Vignali ranked fifth overall. Just a few seconds behind: Wells and Kadoorie. Happy reunion on the PRO/AM podium! This time in reverse order: #7 Leitch/Vignali on second place and #77 Wells/Kadoorie on third place!
Two races - two double podiums! The MOTUL supported team Leipert Motorsport leaves Shanghai with 4 podium wins and is looking forward to the final races of the championships Europe and Asia as well as the World Final at the Circuit Jerez de la Frontera (24-25.10.2019).
