Heading to Chang International Circuit, Nielsen Racing remain firmly in championship contention. Off the back of a victory, second and fourth position, the #2 duo of Tony Wells and Colin Noble are second in the title standings with 56 points, just three shy of the championship-leading #13 entry.
Were it not for a mechanical issue last weekend in Malaysia that resulted in Tony losing a lap right at the start of the race, the team could well be leading heading to Buriram. As it was, a great recovery drive from both Tony and Colin saw them take fourth position and ready to go for the race win and title this coming weekend.
“The championship is very tight and neither us or our rivals can afford mistakes at Buriram, with only a three-point difference,” Nielsen Team Manager Stuart Moseley said. “We have shown great pace with both cars but the races haven’t always worked in our favour. There is no percentage game for either car as we aim to finish the season with victory!”
The #3 squad of Rob Hodes, Garett Grist and Charles Crews may not be championship contention, but finished a strong second at Sepang, their best result of the Asian campaign. With one last round to go before heading back to IMSA Prototype Challenge, they too will be looking to end the Asian tour on a high.
