FFF Racing welcomes Mul and Mapelli for GT Asia title attack in Shanghai

FFF Racing Team will field a second Roger Dubuis-liveried Lamborghini Huracan GT3 for Dutchman Jeroen Mul and Italian racer Marco Mapelli to strengthen its push for the 2016 GT Asia Series title with Andrea Amici and Edoardo Liberati at the Shanghai International Circuit (19-20 October).

Mul made his GT Asia Series debut with FFF Racing when the Italy-based team doubled-up its efforts by fielding a second Lamborghini Huracan in the penultimate round of the championship at the SIC in August.

The 26-year old from the Netherlands shook the established runners by securing a convincing pole position and threatening for podium finishes, therefore FFF Racing feels his continued involvement will strengthen its bid for the championship title as the GT Asia Series returns to Shanghai for its much-anticipated grand finale.

Mapelli, meanwhile, is new to FFF Racing. The 29-year old finished runner-up as an official Birel and Top Kart driver in the Italian and European Karting Championships but began his car racing career with partial Formula Renault campaigns and a Rookie Championship win in Australian Formula 3.

A switch to sportscars yielded class titles in the Italian Ferrari Challenge and Italian GT Championship, but 23 race wins and 55 podiums have been achieved in a wide array of high profile GT championships since then and his remarkable record has been recognised by Lamborghini’s motorsport division.

FFF Racing Team Owner, Sean Fu Songyang, said: “FFF Racing is delighted to have Jeroen Mul back and it’s a pleasure to welcome somebody of Marco Mapelli’s calibre to the fold. The 2016 season has been a huge success for FFF Racing and this is validated by the GT Asia standings, which is headed by Andrea Amici and Edoardo Liberati. However, so much is riding on the outcome of this week’s season finale and that’s why we’re throwing everything at it, with the support of Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Jeroen and Marco.”
