Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia in Shanghai: Double podium for Carrie Schreiner in the PRO /AM class
The last round of the Asian Lamborghini Super Trofeo series took place on one of the most interesting Formula 1 circuits worldwide. The young girl from the Saarland/Germany had got a new team colleague from her FFF Racing team and thus started with the very experienced, best Indian GT pilot Armaan Ibrahim.
As it was at almost all Asian races in this year, also this time there were chaotic weather conditions with partly heavy rain fall. Only the second free practice on Friday was hold on a dry race track. This means no easy conditions for the GT rookie in order to get familiar with this for her new, very challenging and long circuit!
Although it was raining very heavily Carrie achieved position 8 in the qualifying and her teammate position 6 in the second group. In the two races the duo reached position 8 and 7 in the overall classification as well as place 3 and 2 in the PRO / AM class and thus both were on the podium.
Therefore, Carrie’s conclusion was very positive: “After the for me sensational season opening in the Middle East Series with the winning of the Vice Championship, it was clear that it would be considerably more difficult in the Asian series. But except for Sepang at each race weekend I was at least once on the podium. So I can be satisfied. But what’s even more important is that in my first year in the GT sports car I’ve learned a lot. I got to know eight new race tracks, among them the most difficult and nicest circuits worldwide! Also, the often very unpleasant weather conditions have supported this learning effect”, said the pilot of the Lamborghini Junior Program.
At the coming weekend Carrie can present her first performance on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife as a guest starter at the RCN series in a Porsche Cayman GT4 of the team Getspeed Performance.
