The newly-established F3 Asian Championship saw its maiden grand prix unfold last June 16 to 18, 2018 at the 5.5 km-long Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. Duly certified by the global motorsports governing body Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the new series’ first outing saw a total of 17 racecars on the grid, 2 of which were from Pinnacle Motorsport.
In this light, the Irish-licensed Filipino-based racing team boasted its ace drivers Daniel Cao and DRAGON. Highlighting the latter, he’s on a mission to put not just Pinnacle Motorsport on the top, but also to win for his other team called B-Max Racing, a team which collaborated with Pinnacle Motorsport for this new series. The good news is that both men did well enough to secure valuable championship points.
Looking back, Cao showed an impressive performance during the practice sessions, a performance he carried over to the qualifying heats. Because of this, the Chinese driver ended up placing 13th and 12th in Saturdays’ and Sunday’s races, respectively. Likewise, DRAGON qualified competitively high in the Masters Cup.
