The second round of the Asian Le Mans Series began earlier today at the iconic Fuji International Speedway in Japan.
A chilly FP1 ended with our favourite car no. #25 in P4, while the #24 sister car, driven by Harrison Newey and Andrea Pizzitola finished one step up in the table.
Both Algarve Pro Racing Team cars demonstrated their winning potential and gives promises of a great result in tomorrow’s qualifying and the 4-hour race on Sunday.
Anders Fjordbach, who together with Chris McMurry and Mark Patterson are contenders for the AM Trophy, talked with us after today’s free practice:
”It went relatively ok today considering being the only car out there on used tires. Chris and Mark had the car out for the shakedown earlier this morning, so it was also my first time in the seat here in Japan. We tried various setups to get a better understanding of everything and still have some analyzing to do. We’ll see if we need further adjustments prior to FP2, but overall I’m still confident of a good result this weekend.”
Keep your eyes on us for the latest updates about the last practice session and qualifying ahead of the 4-hour race on Sunday.
