Shaun Thong secure his maiden podium in the Audi R8 LMS Cup championship after seeing him starting from 5th in Race 1 and moving to take the podium position away from Championship contender Franky Cheng in the closing stages. In Race 2 Thong delivered an amazing finish to take home 4th after gaining weight penalty from his Race 1 podium finish. 

" I am very pleased with my performance this weekend, I was fast since the first session and i was 2nd in both Free Practice sessions. However I did not transfer this performance into qualifying as i made some mistakes in the best lap and i was only good for P4 and P5 on the starting grid. However I raced well to make up some positions and nothing can be more delighted to finish on the podium under a very tough grid! I guess if i started further front, i am confident to challenge for the win!" Said Thong
