OAK Racing Team TOTAL claimed the 2013 Asian Le Mans Series Championship following a decisive victory in Sunday’s season-ending Three Hours of Sepang.

Ho-Ping Tung took the Michelin-shod No. 24 Morgan-Judd to a 1-minute and 19-second victory over the title-contending No. 18 KCMG Morgan-Nissan, which was unable to match the French-entered car on the track or in the pits.

The ex-A1 GP star passed pole-sitter Tsugio Matsuda with just over an hour to go and stretched his lead during the final round of pit stops when the OAK crew opted to take only new right side tires.
