KCMG went back-to-back in Asian Le Mans Series competition, winning Sunday’s Three Hours of Fuji.

The Hong Kong-based team of Hiroshi Koizumi, James Winslow and Richard Bradley scored top honors in their Morgan-Nissan after a battle with the similarly prepared LMP2 entry from OAK Racing.

A solid final stint by Bradley, however, sealed the victory for the No. 18 entry, which finished 1 minute and 6 seconds ahead of the No. 24 Morgan-Judd of Cong Fu Cheng, David Cheng and Jeffrey Lee.

Completing the overall podium was the Super GT300 class-winning Team Mugen Honda CR-Z of Hideki Mutoh and Yuhki Nakayama. The duo finished eight seconds ahead of the second-placed Gainer Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 in the invitational category, which bolstered the field to a 20-car grid.

In GTC, Craft Racing’s Richard Lyons and Frank Yu held off the challenge from the No. 77 AF Corse Ferrari to take top class honors, placing their Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in eighth overall by the checkered flag.

The No. 70 Taisan Ken Endless Ferrari F458 Italia, the lone GTE car in the field, finished 12th overall.

Next up for the Asian Le Mans Series is the Three Hours of Zhuhai, scheduled for Oct. 13.

RESULTS: Three Hours of Fuji
