Marchy Lee Won The First Audi R8 LMS Cup Championship

Hong Kong driver Marchy Lee has become the first ever Audi R8 LMS Cup Champion after crossing the line in second place at the Shanghai International Circuit last weekend.

The winner went to Audi Driving Dreams team guest driver Edoardo Mortara who took a confident lights-to-flag victory, while third across the line and sealing his second place overall in the championship was Adderly Fong driving for the KLM Team. Malaysia's Alex Yoong was fourth in the Audi GQ car, confirming his third place in the overall points' standings.

Meanwhile, in the Amateur Cup, Jeffrey Lee  took the first spot while second and third places was Alex Au of AK Racing and Aaron Kwok of Team Audi R8 LMS Cup. The Teams' championship was also wrapped up with Audi Ultra taking top honours on 229 points ahead of Audi GQ on 193 points and KLM Team on 186 points.

The Audi R8 LMS Cup has seen 16 drivers compete against each other in identical cars. Racing across the region with rounds at Zhuhai, Shanghai and Ordos, the series is an optimum showcase for Audi lightweight technology. Along with their partner, tyre manufacturer, Michelin, Audi sees the Cup as the perfect opportunity to nurture motorsport talent and demonstrate its commitment to China and its customers in the region. As a further sign of this commitment, they also announced that Audi Korea will enter an official team in the Audi R8 LMS Cup for 2013.
