Defending Asian Le Mans Series Champion Harrison Newey took a decesive win at Fuji Speedway this weekend in his Algarve Pro Racing #24 Ligier JS P2.
Algarve Pro Racing’s championship pedigree (2016-17 ALMS Team Champion) has returned to its winning ways with drivers Andrea Pizzitola and Harrison Newey in the second round of the ALMS Series.
Newey took the lead into the first corner at Fuji Speedway, and maintained it until a well-timed pit call by the United Autosports team enabled its pole-sitting Ligier JS P2 Nissan with Phil Hanson behind the wheel to get the jump on the Algarve entry. The battle between the pair continued throughout the race before a safety car period with just 30 minutes to go bunched the field up. At the restart Pizzitola was just in front of Paul Di Resta in the UA car but held on to claim the victory.
