The KCMG Team head into the weekend at Guangdong hoping to arrest Antonio Giovinazzi’s championship lead.

Round 4 of the Formula Pilota China series heads to the Guangdong International Circuit this weekend with Italian driver Antonio Giovinazzi going into the weekend with a slender four-point advatage over Championship protagonist Dan Wells.

 Opened at the end of 2009, the new international circuit (near Guangzhou – South China) along with Zhuhai; are largest motor sport facilities in the Guangdong province. The new track in Guangzhou just shows that China motorsports is only going to get bigger and better.

KCMG debutant Yuta Shiraishi, only turned 15 last week, but the petite Japanese driver is coming on in leaps and bounds in terms of race fitness and speed and has been able to help championship contender Dan Wells find some time in the new Guangdong surroundings. Dan Wells foray into China is certainly reaping rewards and is introducing a new sponsor in Choctails chocolates. twitter_@Choctails.

 Dan’s regular KCMG team-mate, Akash Neil Nandy won’t be racing again until final weekend in Sepang, with school duties taking a precedent this weekend.

Dan Wells was second fastest in first practice leading into the weekend, but has been the fastest in the three remaining sessions. The final session – with the field on new rubber – Wells was about half a second up, boding well going into the weekend.

Speaking about the teams chances, KCMG engineer Andrew Winsall was quietly confident going into the weekend:

“Fingers crossed, we might have a good weekend. It would be nice to leave here either leading the series or maybe a maximum of 3 points behind”.

This morning is final free practice in Guangdong, with qualifying at 4pm.
