O’Young wins an under investigation shortened Macau GT Cup Qualifying Race

Polesitter Darryl O’Young (Mercedes-AMG GT3) crossed the finish line in the first position in a red-flagged Macau GT Cup race, but the race winner is under investigation by the race stewards for a false start.

Former Chinese Touring Car Championship champion Leo Ye Hongli (Mercedes-AMG GT3) was second at the flag on a shortened race due to the poor visibility with Audi Sport Asia David Chen (Audi R8 LMS GT3) completing the overall and GT3 podium positions.

Several accidents and stoppages in previous races ended up pushing the final scheduled race to the late evening, with poor visibility leading to an early finish.

“It was the first time I drove at night in Macau,” O’Young noted after the race.
