Prette and Tjiptobiantoro win in Sepang
Hong Kong’s driver Philippe Prette and the Indonesian David Tjiptobiantoro opened the 2014 Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific season winning the Trofeo Pirelli and Coppa Shell respectively at the Sepang circuit. Actually first past the chequered flag was polesitter Italian Max Blancardi, but he is not registered in the championship, as he is part of the Pirelli Pro group.
There was a great scrap for the Trofeo Pirelli honours with Prette wheel to wheel with Weng Sun Mok for many laps before coming out on top by a mere 171 thousandths. Third was the Australian Steve Wyatt. Tjiptobiantoro claimed the win in Coppa Shell and was sixth overall ahead of Paul Van Lohenhout and Voravud Bhirombhakdi.
