Hilsborough man Richard Lyons heads east for rounds 3 & 4 of GT Asia which take
place this weekend in Thailand at the Chang international Circuit.
This circuit opened in 2014 and is already a staple a fixture in major world circuit
racing, having hosted both SuperGT and World Superbikes. Weighing in at 12 turns
and 4.54Km’s worth of asphalt, it is once again set to show us some great racing,
but the weather and the punishing humidity will also have a role to play. Using past
experience at this relatively new track, Lyons will be looking to push on and improve
on past results.
After the unfortunate incidents in rounds 1&2, Lyons and Craft Bamboo Racing will
be itching to prove their point in Thailand and banish those memories.
“Buriram is a circuit I really enjoy with its medium/high speed flowing corners.
Leaving rounds 1&2 and the frustration they gave us behind, we gained vital
knowledge of our new Porsche 911 GT3, now we can focus on getting the best out
of our new toy.
Friday official practice will be very important to us. We will try some of the new
setup conclusions we’ve been working through.
Frank has already proven his speed there last year so together we’re pushing for
