This December will be another interesting outing for Zen Low and the Aylezo crew as they embark on the Sepang 12Hours in the Lamborghini Huracan ST. The race, held at the 5.543km Sepang International Circuit, is scheduled to start at noon on Saturday, 12th December, ending at midnight on Sunday, 13th December 2015.
“Starting the race midday will be interesting, especially if the weather stays this unpredictable. The past few weeks its been raining every day at different times and it does get quite heavy. For me, I’ve always liked racing in the rain, just as long as its not raining during the night stints then it should be fun” said Zen.
Driving under team Fydis Aylezo, Zen will pair up with Swedish driver, Bryant Meisner and Australian GP3 driver, Mitch Gilbert. Zen and Bryant were also paired up during the recent Asian Le Mans Series in Sepang, where they finished second in class.
Having a long standing relationship with Lamborghini means that there will be full support from the Lamborghini factory. Their engineers will be on hand to back Fydis Aylezo in their quest to bring the Lamborghini Huracan ST, to a GTC win
Zen continues, “I would like to thank Giorgio Sanna, Head of Motorsport, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A for the great support he and his team has given us and also for this opportunity to work closely with factory engineers.
“This will be an interesting outing for all of us and we do enjoy ending the year with great races. Experiencing and competing in an endurance race is unlike any other race, while it is stressful, tiring and long, it is also a really fun outing for everyone”.
Although the atmosphere of the year end endurance seem less hectic, as most all competitors have completed their various Championship seasons, the battles on track will still be very tough. “You still have to fight all the way to get to the chequered flag. Looking at the entry list, it looks like it will be more of a 12-hour sprint race than a steady paced endurance race” he ended.
The Sepang 12Hours is co-organised by Sepang International Circuit and SRO Motorsport Group, where SRO will adapt the full technical and sporting regulations of the Total 24 Hours of Spa. The race is scheduled to start at 12noon on Saturday, 12th December and end as the clock strikes midnight on Sunday, 13 December.
In South East Asia, Fox Sports Asia will show large parts of the race live through Fox Sports 3, Fox Play as well as showing the full race live on their website. Thereafter highlights will be broadcast on Astro.
