A nasty oversteer problem had now crept in to haunt the drivers. This was traced to a broken front sway bar and was responsible for Kaffer's immediate drop down through the field.
At the end of the first stint, PK handed the car to Allan in 5th. Unfortunately their pit box was already in use by the second Farnbacher car of Pierre Ehret and Dominik Farnbacher, delaying the Dane's change over by 30 seconds.
Returning in 7th, Allan started his 70 minute fight back session in full drift style, which is quite ironic, since Hnakook are big in the drift market within Asia.
Back to 5th, it was time to pit again, but guess what? The pit box was busy again by guess who - the sister car. Add another 30 seconds!
