Sepang 31 August 2013: The FIA-Sanctioned International AsiaCup Series supported the 2013 MMER race at Sepang over the national holiday weekend. Up-and-coming star Malaysian driver Daniel Woodroof won round 6 of the series, his second win to date. Daniel is currently leading the AsiaCup Asian Driver Trophy class.
Having only completed five days testing, Daniel Woodroof has quickly proven his racecraft and ability as a potential AsiaCup champion. Daniel was fifth quickest in official practice and qualified third, finishing race 1 in 4th place and second in race 2 before finally taking the top of the podium for race 3.
Says Daniel: “I had one day testing before practice and that helped to get me on the pace and I was very happy with my practice times. I didn’t quite pull all my best sectors together for qualifying but I was happy with 4th. Race 1 was hectic with 4 lead driver changes and I was up to third at one point. It was fantastic to be on the podium for race 2 and in the third race there was a massive battle in front of me between Swanepoel and Zou, and when I saw the chance I took the lead. I am so happy and this Series is fantastic. It is so close up front with the top 3 drivers within a thousandth of a second.”
Peter Woodroof, Daniel’s father says: “it is great to have the AsiaCup Series here at Sepang circuit. It is truly a world class driver development series with global competition.”
