EYAS lifestyle, a lifestyle management firm responsible for sponsoring the adrenaline pumping X-ONE Racing in Shanghai was founded by Christian A. Borel and Adhum Carter Wolde-Lule. It has been responsible for sponsoring X-ONE Racing in the Asian terrain. After three successful seasons in Europe from 2009-2012, the Lamborghini BlancpainSuper Trofeo Championship moved to Asia because of global intrigue. With races on international circuits like Shanghai, Fuji and Sepang, with teams coming from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan the Asian series provides an exclusive platform for gentleman drivers, entering individually or in teams of two.

X-ONE Racing was founded in 2016 and it competed with the Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Blancpain GT3 Series Asia 2017 in its first ever season. Benjamin J. Fischer and DomenicoSchiattarella were the team owners who led the carder under the banner of "Teamchief". The fully equipped and technically state-of-racing-art mechanical team is on-site at every venue of the competition, two of the most competitive, fastest growing, and exciting racing series for professional and "gentlemen" drivers who yearn for the thrill of the wheel and speed racing.

The EYAS Lifestyle team, aside from sponsoring the team, also attended the event and trackside to welcome and facilitatetheir Asianmembers and some potential new members.


All Haryanto needed was a few points to clinchthe Am Championship when he arrived at Shanghai and he quickly earned two of those in the qualifying when he and team-mate Hwang both set the fastest times to secure two class poles. In race one, the pair dominated the class, finishing 8th overall and adding enough points to Haryanto’s total to ensure that he could remain unbeaten. Race two saw the same brilliance, as the pair won their class again and finished 5th overall. Their Shanghai points haul allowed Hwang to move up to second in the Championship.


This was followed with another incredible performance from the virtuoso solo driver Haryanto in the two wet Blancpain GT Series Asia. The races at Shanghai saw him climb up and reign at the top of the Am Championship. The Indonesian had won the Am class in race one, recorded his fifth consecutive victory and finished 3rd despite the torrid driving conditions during the race.
