Continue to lead the table, Fuji Circuit goes all out

This season, in order to commemorate the 36 years of Audi’s entry into China, Cheng Congfu and Fang Junyu specially selected the second-generation Audi R8 LMS GT3 evo II car numbered “36” to play. Under the momentum of the Year of the Dragon, the FAW Audi team performed very strongly in the field. In the four-day competition, the FAW Audi team won a total of 1 full-time championship and a full-time third-place finisher. In the Silver group, it won the excellent results of “one championship, two Asian and one season”, leading the Silver group driver scoreboard, and also showed the second generation of Audi R8 LMS G T3 evo II is the absolute dominance in automotive GT events.

The upcoming GT World Challenge Asia Fuji Station will hold the qualifying competition on June 21, followed by two consecutive rounds on the 22nd and 23rd. Under the intense schedule, the participating teams will meet the rapid test brought by the world-renowned Fuji Circuit under Mount Fuji. The Fuji track, known as one of the most beautiful tracks in the world, has a 1.475-kilometer straight track and also builds the best stage for racing cars and drivers to show the limits. Countless cars have left a roar of full sprint here.

FAW Audi “Dream Team” hit, pointing to the champion

In this competition, the FAW Audi team formed a “Dream Team” luxury lineup to once again attack the Silver group champion. Cheng Congfu and Fang Junyu, the official driver combination of Audi Sports Asia, have fought side by side with Audi for a long time and gained many achievements. Among them, star driver Cheng Congfu has many honorary labels such as “China’s first racer”, “Le Mans 24-hour endurance race China’s first person”, “German Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race China’s first person”. As early as 2014, the young driver Fang Junyu became the first racing driver in Hong Kong to obtain a FIA super driver’s license and the only F1 test driver. This time, the two also teamed up to represent the FAW Audi team for the first time this season, and showed excellent tacit cooperation in the first two races, making the FAW Audi team the favorite in the Silver group.

As the top car of the two drivers, the Audi R8 LMS GT3 has won the championship in the world’s top events, including 24h Nürburgring and 24h Sebring since its inception. More than 70 times. In the 2024 GTWCA Thailand race, the Audi R8 LMS GT3 racer swept the podium with absolute strength and became the “version answer” of this season.

Extreme attitude, nature burns! From June 21st to 23rd, the FAW Audi team will go all out to win the Fuji Circuit Cup, and the sword will point to the annual championship!
