Andrew Tang Wins Timaru Herald Trophy

Published 19 January 2014

Fast and clean was the order of the day for Singapore’s Andrew Tang in this afternoon’s feature race, the Timaru Herald Trophy. Though he shadowed pole man Martin Rump through the 20 lap race, Tang knew he had the race under control after Rump crept forward at the start.

The jump start penalty dropped the Estonian three places in the results, allowing Tang his second win of the series. The pair had cleared out on the field at the start, establishing a gap on third-placed Jann Mardenborough of more than five seconds. James Munro, winner of the first race of the weekend yesterday, had started third but slipped one place in the opening laps. He hung on to fourth which became third once Rump’s penalty was applied.

That gave Andy Neale’s two-car team a double podium finish in the feature race and brought the team’s championship race win tally to three..

There was disappointment for series front-runner Egor Orudzhev who was forced to pit on lap eight when his engine developed a camshaft sensor fault. Australian Macauley Jones was also in the pits with an engine problem, rejoining the race after an excruciating nine minute stop.

Winners this weekend were James Munro, who started from pole to score his first ever victory in TRS on Saturday; Jann Mardenborough, who won from pole in Sunday morning’s semi-reverse grid race; and Tang, who won from the front row. All three say their qualifying performances were crucial to their wins.

Mardenborough set the new outright race lap record for levels during Sunday morning’s race with a 57.693.

Martin Rump retains the championship lead on 329 points ahead of Jann Mardenborough on 321 and Egor Orudzhev on 282.
