Marsh fastest at Macau

Matthew Marsh grabbed pole position for the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia race to be held here in Macau on Sunday.
Marsh set a time of 2 minutes 35.668 seconds early in the session leaving other competitors to play catch up. Marsh, a Hong Kong resident, was clearly elated to put the car on pole as he bids to secure backing to compete in the series next year.
He said "I wish the weekend could end right now" and thanked his racing buddies Patrick Long, Peter Windsor and Rob Wilson for all their support.
Charles Kwan from Hong Kong, the Championship leader, came closest setting a time at the end of the session just one-hundredth of second short of the pole time. Kwan said "I was disappointed not to get pole position but I was concentrating on qualifying ahead of Nigel Albon."
Third fastest was Formula One driver Alex Yoong whose car was repaired following a crash in practice yesterday. Nigel Albon from Great Britain, Championship contender to Charles Kwan, was fourth and should be a threat in the race.
