Customer Sport: China GT - Strong performace for Xtreme Motorsport

China GT Championship Shanghai
 
Ling Kang took a strong start in the #86 KTM X-Bow GT4. Starting from 6th place, the Xtreme Motorsport driver fought
straight into the leading group. A light rain made things more tricky to stay in the top 3. Up to the mandatory pit stops, the battle at the front continued and was then interrupted by the driver changes. In the second part of the fifth race, the weather gods then struck correctly and sent continuous rain over the F1 track of Shanghai. Numerous spinners due to the mounted slicks forced the race director to show the red flag. Due to the worsening weather situation, the race was not resumed. Ling Kang and Lo Sze HO had advanced to second position shortly before the crash and were thus allowed to climb onto the podium. Liu Kai and Wei Tianyi in the second Xtreme Motorsports KTM X-Bow GT4 took the points for seventh place.
 
The sixth round of the 2019 season was also mixed by the weather conditions. Although traveling on slicks, Wei Tianyi was able to take the lead from fourth on the grid in the first lap. The # 87 Xtreme Motorsports KTM X-Bow GT4 lead the race for a good three laps, but then lost the lead again until the end of the race. Teammate Liu Kai was able to drive up to first place after the driver change, hard pressed by the competition. The Xtreme Motorsports crew finally made it to the podium with final rank 3. The second KTM X-Bow GT4 was robbed early of all chances of a top placing. In Turn 1, the # 86 was spun and had to rejoin in 15th place again. Despite additional stops and changes to rain tires, Ling Kang and Lo Sze were able to return to the top 10 thanks to strong lap times and finished the race in 9th place.
