Roberto Merhi finishes second in the 4 hours of Shanghai

Eurasia Motorsport won the pole on Saturday and finished third in the race, but the Carlin team was sanctioned and took Merhi to second place in his Asian Le Mans Series debut.


Roberto Merhi is sweet. The Castellón rider, confirmed for the World Resistance (WEC) tests on December 15 in Bahrain with the Russian LMP2 G-Drive Racing team, made an outstanding debut in the Asia Asian Le Mans Series. A premiere that took its face on Saturday with the Shanghai 4-hour pole for its team, Eurasia Motorsport.

And in the Merhi race, together with Aidan Read and Nick Foster, he took the Ligier JS to second place. A second place that came after the race, since the Eurasia Motorsport team crossed the finish line in third place, but the penalty of three laps for the Carlin team (for exceeding one of its drivers driving times) was finally the second place of the drawer. "After a long race we finished in 2nd place, a pit pit pitty that has complicated our victory," explained the Spanish driver in his communication channels after the race.
