Absolute Racing set for Ningbo
After the opening round in Sepang, team Absolute Racing heads to Ningbo International Speedpark for the second event of the 2018 F3 Asian Championship.
On the home track, Malaysian Akash Nandy and Jaden Conwright showed potential and they are both highly motivated to extract the maximum performance of the new Tatuus cars, knowing that the Chinese track features different characteristics. Completed only last year, Ningbo’s new circuit is a relatively unknown quantity. The 4.015-kilometre track runs in an anti-clockwise direction and is located 250km south of Shanghai.
The team is going into the weekend with optimism, after completing a successful two-day test, and expect to be competitive from the start. To better prepare the race weekend both drivers stayed in China over the short break.
“We are heading into Ningbo with high expectations and a positive outlook“, said Ingo Matter, Absolute Racing Team Director, “ This is not an easy circuit to master, but we have been working hard over the last two weeks. With 22 corners around the lap, it will be busy work for the drivers to maintain concentration and put together a perfect lap, particularly in qualifying. Having a trouble-free run from the start will be essential for a successful race weekend. We are looking forward to the challenge that awaits us this weekend.”
