Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race Today
The Sepang GP track is the scene of a 12 hour endurance event today,
the Merdeka Millennium Endurance event.
Norman Simon and Charles Kwan are the favourites to take the win,
the German driver duly putting the car on pole position with a 2:06.181
lap – and his team-mates set the second and third fastest
times, both in the 2:09 bracket. They’re driving the Amprex
Motorsport Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT, the car that races in the
is being prepared for next year's Le Mans 24 Hours,” indicated
Sitting next to the Murcielago
will be the G1 Symphony Racing Team’s Porsche 911 GT3-RS,
driven by Eric Yeo, Firhat Mokhzani and Chin Tzer Jinn. Yeo set
this car’s qualifying time, a 2:20.573 – so it looks
as though the Lamborghini should have things all its own way, if
it is reliable. The Yeo / Mokhzani / Jinn Porsche won last year’s
race, by just about a lap from another Porsche.
Over 70 cars are expected
to take the start.
