Sobue與Rathiesky收穫四連勝 | Sobue & Rathiesky complete the double double

Akio Sobue統治了在今天下午於TRC進行的Sweep Modified組別決賽。沒有受到任何真正的挑戰,這位日本車手順利拉開了與後車的距離並建立起了可觀的領先優勢直至順利完賽。在他身後,Nicholas Lee完成了堪稱孤獨的8分鐘決賽,拿下亞軍。Jin Sawada和從第八位躥升上來的Jan Ratheisky激烈爭奪第四名的位置。這張戰鬥很快演變為爭奪第三名,因為Andy Moore在直路上發生嚴重失誤,撞上了賽道圍欄;不過Andy僅下跌了2名,最終以第五名的成績帶回。Jin成功抵御住了德國人,站上領獎台上的最後一個位置;Jan獲得本場第四。

Akio Sobue put in a dominant performance in what was mostly a precessional race in the Sweep Modified class at TRC this afternoon. Never really challenged, the Japanese driver was able to pull clear of the chasing pack early on and build up a substantial lead by the end. Behind, Nicholas Lee had what can be described a lonely race in 2nd. While Jin Sawada and a very fast starting Jan Ratheisky, starting in 8th, had a good battle for 4th. That battle would become for 3rd as just ahead Andy Moore had a big moment coming onto the main straight and stuffed it into the wall on the main straight but somehow only lost 2 positions and was able to bring it home in 5th. Jin could stay in front of the German to take the final step on the podium with Jan finishing in 4th.

Sobue在賽後說,他在前兩分鐘全力以赴,拉開了與二車的距離;當他確認自己的領先優勢已經穩固之後就開始放鬆著跑了。他在賽前曾擔心車子在5分鐘後變得很甩,然而實際上車架在整個比賽過程中都保持了不錯的平衡性。他提到比賽時很重要的一點是不要去踩路肩,因為這很容易導致翻車;他一直採用保守的跑法,並順利斬獲本賽季的第四個冠軍。

Sobue said after, that he pushed hard in the first 2 minutes to build a gap and when he was sure his position was secure he started drive easier. He said that before the race he thought that after 5 minutes the car would become loose but it didn’t and actually maintained its balance throughout the entire race. Mentioning that it was important not to touch the kerbs as it was easy to flip over he drove conservatively and brought it home to take his 4th win and second clean sweep of the season.

Yokomo車手Lee說:「我想要接近Akio」;然而賽前改變的設定並沒有帶來他預期中的好效果。作為18/19賽季的首站比賽,他對自己在香港的穩健開局感到滿意,在昨天收穫一個第三名之後,今天他更進一步,拿下第二。

Yokomo driver Lee said ‘I wanted to be closer to Akio’ however a setup change made prior to the final hadn’t worked out and so he was not as fast as expected. His first entry for the 2018/19 season, having missed the first two rounds due to personal reasons, he was content with his solid start to the championship, leaving Hong Kong with a 3rd from yesterday to go with today’s 2nd place.

Jin Sawada在決賽中的表現非常穩定,他一邊對前方的隊友Andy Moore施加壓力,同時又要抵御來自Jan Ratheisky的進攻,最終獲得第三名。Jin在賽後依然對自己的車不滿意,並又跑了一排電進行測試;一如既往,他終於找到了一整個週末都在思考的解決方案。

Jin Sawada put in a solid performance as he pressured his team mate Andy Moore ahead of him while resisting pressure by Jan Ratheisky from behind to take home 3rd. Jan was still not happy with his car following the race and so decided to run an extra pack and, as is common, finally found a solution to the problem he was having all weekend.

Scorpion Stock組別的決賽與Modified組的決賽截然相反,桿位選手Jan Ratheisky與第二位發車的Yan Cheung全程纏鬥在一起,兩位車手的差距從未超過一秒鐘。在多次交替領先之後,兩人還發生了一次較嚴重的碰撞,當時排名第三的Derek Yuen也被捲入其中;最終Jan稍稍拉開了一些距離,率先衝線。Mugen車手Yan Cheung獲得第二名,Angus Leung獲得第四站比賽的第三。

In the Scorpion Stock class, it was the opposite of the modified final, with pole man Jan Ratheisky and 2nd placed starter Yan Cheung putting on an exhibition for almost the entire race, with the pair separated by fractions of a second throughout. Featuring multiple passes, as well as a one time major get together which involved the 3rd place starter Derek Yuen, in the end Jan was able to just pull clear and take the win, the German however still visibly down on power.  Mugen driver Cheung took 2nd, while Angus Leung complete the Round 4 series podium.

Sobue在TRC奪得第四站桿位 | Sobue claims pole position for Rd4 at TRC

Akio Sobue在今天的預賽中第二次拿下單輪TQ,他也因此奪得OneTen系列賽第四站的桿位。Nicholas Lee將在決賽時從第二位發車,這位Yokomo車手與Andy Moore同分,但依靠更快的單輪完賽成績力壓英國人。Jin Sawada和Felix Law分別位列第四和第五。Sobue是唯一一位在第四輪預賽中使用新胎的選手,但他感覺由於天熱的關係,賽道抓地力更低了。這位Infinity車手也注意到他車子的衰減問題比之前更嚴重。對於決賽,Akio說他只會換上新胎,不再做任何設定調整。

Akio Sobue will start from pole position in round 4 of the OneTen series having taking his 2nd TQ run of the day. Nicholas Lee will start from 2nd position, the Yokomo driver tying on points with Andy Moore but having the faster time thanks to his Q3 run. Jin Sawada and Felix Law complete the top half of the grid. Sobue was the only driver in the top heat on new tires but due to the heat felt the track was more loose than before. The Infinity driver also noticing a more considerable drop off in pace later in the run compared to earlier. For the final, Akio said he will simply mount his final set of tires.

Yokomo車手Nicholas Lee將在決賽中從第二位發車,他全新的BD9在更換了設定方向後更快了。在最後一輪預賽中,他說天氣炎熱讓賽道不抓,加上舊胎的關係,他承認很難跑得好,不過他依舊以第四名的成績帶回。對於決賽,他將會稍微調整設定來讓車子更轉,在所有車手都將使用新胎的情況下,他認為自己有機會爭勝。

Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee will start from 2nd place, finding renewed pace after a direction change in the setup of his new BD9. In the final qualifier, he said with the hot weather making the track loose, combined with old tires he admitted it was difficult to drive but still came home with a 4th for the round. For the final he will make a small change to help find more rotation in the car and with that and all drivers on new tires he feels he can fight it out for the win.

Andy Moore說他希望能拿下預賽第二,但Nico在成績上擊敗了他,所以最終他只能接受在決賽中從第三位發車。關於決賽,他認為跑完8分鐘沒有任何問題,只要確保電池是充滿的。Andy的隊友Jin Sawada獲得預賽第四,他的最後一輪由於二樓板有一顆螺絲松脫而表現得不盡人意,日本車手說有鑒於此,他認為車架其實感覺還不錯。

Andy Moore said he was hoping for 2nd on the grid but Nico beat his time and will instead start from 3rd on the grid later today. Asked about the final he is confident he can make the 8 minutes without problems, saying he just needs to make sure the battery is full. Team mate Jin Sawada starts just behind in 4th, his final run being hampered somewhat by a missing top deck screw, the Japanese racer saying his car felt not too bad considering this.

決賽第五位起步的Felix Law在第四輪預賽中用了他剩下的最後一套預賽新胎,這套輪胎讓他拿下第四輪第五名,他的輪胎策略助其殺入預賽前五。在他之後,Hay Lai、Carven Chow、Jan Ratheisky和Fai Ho是另四位進入前九的車手,這九位車手將直接晉級A組決賽,而A組的最後一個位置將屬於B組的冠軍。

Starting from position 5 on the grid, Felix Law ran his final qualifying set of Sweep tires in Q4 to give him 5th for the round, his strategy of saving tires for today netting him a grid position in the top half of the A-main field. Behind, Hay Lai, Carven Chow, Jan Ratheisky and Fai Ho complete the top 9 drivers that qualify directly into the main final, a place reserved for the winner of the B-main.

第三輪預賽賽況更新 | Q3 Update

Nicholas Lee勝出第三輪預賽,這位Yokomo車手使用了僅存的一套可以在預賽中使用的新胎。比二車快2秒完賽的新加坡人使用了全新的設定,力壓Infinity三人組Jin Sawada、Akio Sobue和Andy Moore;Sawada在這一輪也使用了新胎。目前在預賽積分表上,Lee和Moore暫時同分排在榜首,而Nicholas目前小分佔優。Akio Sobue仍然有機會奪得TQ,他只需要在最後一輪跑出第二名即可,他現有的單輪最快完賽成績應該很難被超過,而日本車手也確實保留了一套新胎在最後一輪使用。

Nicholas Lee has topped Q3, the Yokomo driver using the round to run his last remaining qualifying set of tires. Two seconds clear at the front, the Singaporean ran a completely new setup and headed the Infinity trio of Jin Sawada, Akio Sobue and Andy Moore, Sawada another to run on new tires. The result now sees Lee on the same points as Moore at the top of ranking, with Nicholas currently having the tie break. Akio Sobue can still take the TQ spot, needing only a 2nd place having put in the fastest 4 minute run of the day should it need to go to tie break, the Japanese driver having saved tires with which to do so.

在Scorpion Stock組別中,Jan Ratheisky再度確認自己的權威,連勝三輪提前鎖定TQ。Yan Cheung依舊是Xray車手唯一的競爭者,他僅落後0.4秒完賽;Jimmy So獲得本輪第三。

In the Scorpion Stock class Jan Ratheisky confirmed what was already a forgone conclusion as the German again took the top spot in Q3 to secure the pole position starting spot for this afternoon’s single 8-minute A-main. Yan Cheung continues to be the only competition for the Xray driver, his time only 4 tenths back, with Jimmy So completing the top 3.

第二輪預賽由Andy Moore勝出 | Q2 goes to Andy Moore

Andy Moore是香港OneTen系列賽第二輪預賽的TQ,這位Infinity車手及第二至第四名Nicholas Lee、Jan Ratheisky和Felix Law都在這一輪啓用了新胎。Jin Sawada是使用舊胎的車手中最快的,Akio Sobue使用跑過2輪的舊胎下地,僅獲第九名。知道自己的隊友將使用新胎,Andy Moore就堵上了自己僅剩的兩套新胎中的一套。如果收穫一輪第一、一輪第二,這將能確保他最少可以從第三位起步進行決賽,他之所以做這個決定是因為他認為自己在剩下的兩輪預賽中不可能有更好的表現。

Andy Moore has TQd the 2nd round of qualifying at the OneTen series in Hong Kong, the Infinity driver heading home Nicholas Lee, Jan Ratheisky and Felix Law, the top 4 all deciding to run one of their new sets of Sweep tires for this round. Jin Sawada was quickest of the drivers who decided to use old tires, team mate Akio Sobue ending in 9th having run 2 run old tires. With the knowledge of his team mates running old tires Andy Moore bolted one of his 2 remaining fresh sets, the result being that he now has a 1st and a 2nd and at a minimum will give him a 3rd on the grid, saying he doesn’t believe he can produce a better result in the remaining two rounds.

Nicholas Lee對自己這一輪的發揮感到失望,「不太好」他如此說道。他認為自己有一些迷失在了設定中,他將會換回昨天上午的設定,去掉車尾的ARS。仍舊手握兩套新胎,如何使用它們現在變得至關重要,如果他想要提升自己的預賽排名的話。

Nicholas Lee was disappointed with his run, saying it was ‘not too good’. Admitting to getting lost with setup, he will now revert back to what he ran yesterday morning, removing the active rear toe from his BD9. Still having 2 new sets of tires, the decision about when to run them will be crucial if he is to improve his starting position.

Xray車手Jan Ratheisky同樣使用新胎下地,他抱怨賽道的溫度過高,以至於他的車子嚴重推頭。為了克服這個問題,下一輪他會將後差速油換為更厚的20000號以尋求更多轉向。在Stock組別中,Jan繼續保持其統治地位,也依然在大直路上不夠快。德國人勝出了昨天全部三輪預賽和三輪決賽,今天也已經連勝兩輪預賽。

Xray driver Jan Ratheisky, also on new tires, complained that with the track temperature coming up it is causing his car to push badly. To counter this for the next round he has changed the oil in his rear diff, going up to 20K in search of more steering. In the Stock class, Jan continues to dominate despite lacking top speed, the German having taking all 3 rounds of qualifying and all finals yesterday along with the opening two rounds today.

Felix Law將他昨天的表現形容為「Super epic fail」,他選擇為今天的比賽保留4套新胎,而新胎的優勢也顯而易見,這位Serpent車手在第一輪獲得第五,本輪拿下第四。Jin Sawada這一輪排名第五,其後是Awesomatix車手Fai Ho,King Fong和Ivan Lo。

Felix Law, who described his Saturday as a ‘Super epic fail’, chose to save 4 of his 5 allocated tires for today, the benefit of new tires plain for everyone to see, the Serpent driver backing up his 5th in Q1 with 4th in Q2. Jin Sawada would take 5th for the round ahead of Awesomatix driver Fai Ho, King Fong and Ivan Lo rounding out the top 8.
