Three races, three winners: Edoardo Mortara, Franky Congfu Cheng and Thomas Fjordbach shared the victories in the third round of the Audi R8 LMS Cup season. Wildcard starter Mortara celebrated a commanding start-finish victory in the first race on the Penbay International Circuit. The DTM driver won by 1.313 seconds ahead of Cheng and Fjordbach. Although Mortara crossed the finish line first in race two, a 30-second penalty prevented the Italian from taking two wins. Benefactor was Cheng, who moved up a position and celebrated his first victory of the season. Rookie Aditya Patel and reigning Champion Alex Yoong finished behind him on the winners’ rostrum. In the third race, Thomas Fjordbach celebrated his first win. On the first lap, the rookie benefitted from the push-to-pass function and overtook pole sitter Patel. Fjordbach defended the lead all the way to the flag. Title holder Alex Yoong and Congfu Cheng followed in second and third less than one second behind. After the third of six rounds Aditya Patel is at the top of the standings. The next Audi R8 LMS Cup race weekend is held on August 8-9 in Sepang (Malaysia).
