A Race Weekend to Remember for Team FXPRIMUS Aylezo

 
[28-November-2014]
 

EBENE, Mauritius, November 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Team FXPRIMUS Aylezo fought tooth and nail during the final Blancpain Lamborghini Super Trofeo race weekend to claim one podium at the Sepang International Circuit today. The team drove well despite the heat in the first race, finishing third and fifth under wet conditions in race two.

The team suffered from electrical and suspension issues in race one but still managed to set impressive times to finish on the podium in the morning race. Afiq Yazid started the race for the team from third on the grid and immediately passed the second placed car at the start. From there, he pushed on and a few laps later managed to overtake the leading car and held on to the lead all the way, passing the car to Zen Low in P1.

"I am happy with the results of the race today with the podium. My stint was good, I had a really good start and I managed to overtake the second placed car almost immediately. The weather was really hot and at the end of about five laps I started to struggle with the car.

Towards the end of my stint, the tires had degraded from the hot weather, and I knew I had to reserve the tires for Zen. This forced me to brake early to conserve as much rubber as I could." ended Afiq.

Zen took over the car and as he went out, the team lost one position after a slower pit-stop. He kept his head down and strived to maintain his position as best as he could with the degrading tires. "At the driver change, we lost some time at the pit as we had to reset the car due to overheating even while on standstill. We lost about four to five seconds there. As I went out, the second placed car passed me for the lead. I managed to hold on to the second position for a few laps but as the race went on the tires degraded further and the car started to slide everywhere and it just wasn't drivable. As Afiq said, the weather was so hot that it affected the tires."

"There was nothing I could do but to focus and push as hard as I could, but another car passed and that was about it. We managed to bring the car home safely in third, I am not very happy but that was the best that I could do."

The team then immediately turned their attention towards race two and just ten minutes before the start, the skies opened up and a wet race was declared leaving the final race to start behind the safety car. Conditions only improved halfway through the first stint as the rain stopped and the track began to dry out. At the stop, the team opted to change to slicks as Zen passed the car over to Afiq.

The team's decision proved costly as the track took longer than usual to dry up, leaving Afiq to struggle with the car throughout the first half of his stint. Too much time was lost and the team only managed to finish the race fifth in class.

"We made some adjustments to the car as it was suffering from a lot of understeer. After three laps behind the safety car and midway through the race, the rain stopped. But I was having a lot of understeer again and our Race Engineer told me to take it easy. Right before I pitted, 60-70% of the track was drying out, so he asked me 'What do you think?' and I thought Afiq could handle it so we decided to go with the slicks, but unfortunately the gamble didn't pay off" said Zen dejectedly after the race.

"At the end of the day, the team did a really good job but this is racing and anything can happen during a race. Luck was just not on our side during the second race. The Championship is over and we just have to learn from today and look ahead to a new season next year" ended Afiq.

The 2014 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia has taken the team to five race circuits around Asia, beginning in May at Sepang International Circuit before heading to Indonesia, to Japan and China before returning to Malaysia for the finale and the World Final.
