The first GT Academy champion Lucas Ordoñez (and VisionRacer VR3 owner driver) scored his first Super GT victory in the series’ latest round at Thailand’s Chang International Circuit last weekend. Lucas and his teammate Kazuki Hoshino held off highly experienced driver Jorg Müller in the Studie BMW Z4 GT3 car.
“My first victory in Super GT, it’s an amazing feeling,” said Lucas after the race. “We thought we had a good pace for this track, with the layout and testing in the simulators, but our concern was the tire management and the heat. It has been the hottest race by far – a lot more than Malaysia – and Yokohama did a great job. The GT-R we drove today was fantastic, and really fun to drive.”
