Two top 10 results for Team Boss Dilantha Malagamuwa and two podium finishes in the GTM class for Dilango Racing in Sepang.

The team’s second car in the GTM class performed even better. Takuma Aoki / Ken Urata in a Gallardo LP560 GT3 crossed the finish line second in their class and, in doing so, continued their excellent run of results in the gentlemen’s class.
