Florian Merckx is one step closer to winning this years Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific championship! This week the Belgian driver once again stole the show with two stunning performances coming from behind to win both races at the Fuji speedway, Japan.
Florian stated the following after winning the first race in spectacular fashion: “I started from P2 and after some laps I saw an opportunity to pass, went for it, and kept the position to the end ! I can't tell you how it feels to win the race in front of the whole WEC paddock ! Just unbelievable ! Thank you everybody, your support means really a lot to me, and I am so grateful for what life is putting on my path.”
This quote perfectly demonstrates Florian’s passion, hunger and humility. These are all personality traits that indicate why he’s a winner and why we are so proud to sponsor him. After winning the second race he went on to say: “It has been fantastic to race in the APAC series this year and was great to collect four wins in a row."
With just one race to go, the excitement and energy is building. We wish Florian all the best with the final circuit at Daytona beach, USA. We know that with his attitude, commitment and a few cans of Hype Energy to keep him focused and energized, he can claim the 2016 Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific championship.
