Greg Murphy consolidated his second place in the Asian F3 Promotions Class Championship with second and third place finishes at Sentul Circuit, Indonesia on September 18th.
The Irishman only has a mathematical chance of clinching the championship in the final event at the Batangas Racing Circuit in the Philippines on November 6th. There are 40 points still up for grabs and Murphy is now 39 points behind leader, Moreno Soeprapto. Lee Farrell is 21 points behind in third place. “I have to make sure I finish in BRC to ensure I am second in the Championship” said Murphy.
The first race in Sentul saw Murphy unable to catch Moreno and once Farrell had spun out on lap two he went into cruise mode to ensure a finish. The second race saw Moreno and Farrell dice up front with Murphy carrying a watching brief in third. “I am racing for points now that Moreno has effectively wrapped up the championship. I want to finish second in the series”.
