Racing against an epic 32-car grid made up mainly of Aston Martins, Ferraris, Porsches and Lambos, we'd love to report a 'David slays Goliath' story for the brand's hand-made GT3-homologated effort. Sadly, what actually happened was a 28th place start, followed by a retirement just four laps later.
In an admirably stoic statement to the press, Bufori spoke optimistically about the performance of the BMS R1, the racing car that Bufori's upcoming CS road car will be based on. It points out that, by the end of the first lap, the R1 and driver Alex Yoong had already passsed five cars, and the untimely departure of his car from the race was caused by a piece of track debris jamming the throttle during an overtaking manoeuvre.
While the race was eventually won by a Lamborghini Gallardo GT3, Bufori remains optimistic and is already signed up to enter the Asian GT Masters series next year. Meanwhile, the CS road car will make its debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2010.
