Winner of the opening two rounds, and current points leader in the Modified class, Jin Sawada will once again head the Infinity team’s challenge as he aims to extend his perfect scoring record as the series heads south. Guangzhou native, and current Chinese national champion, Gary Huang will be Xray’s lead driver at AMA as he returns to his preferred track surface having struggled somewhat on carpet at the opening round at RCI in Shanghai. Serpent have made a big push for what is essentially their home event with lead driver Yugo Nagashima making the trip from Japan to join Stick King from Hong Kong as they aim to go one place better than team mate Rocket Zhang achieved in Rd1 & 2 of the series and get a first win for the Chinese brand with their all new car.

Sawada & Kiyoyi complete OneTen double

Jin Sawada survived a big scare in the early stages of the 8-minute main final when the Japanese driver rolled his IF14, to come back and win the 2nd round of the OneTen series hosted by RCI V2 in Shanghai. Losing almost half a lap on the small technical track, the incident dropped the pole man down to 4th and left Rocket Zhang in the lead. Fighting his way back to the front, Jin managed to get back into the lead with two and a half minutes to go and would go on to extend his lead to over 5 seconds by the end of the race. Rocket would hold on for 2nd with Motor King completing the top 3. Discussing the incident, Sawada put it down to running with more power, thanks to the increased voltage, and lower than normal traction. Losing the back of the car slightly it clipped the small yellow curbs, sending his car into the wall and needing to be marshalled. Following the crash, he said his car was feeling really good and he could go about his recovery drive, which he admitted added some excitement to what was a rather processional race.

Feeling already in the warmup that the traction had dropped, at the start of the race Rocket tried to stay with Sawada and build a gap to Motor King in 3rd. When the Infinity driver crashed, the Serpent driver pushed super hard to pull a gap to try make it to the end ahead of the pole man but seeing him close as quickly as he did, Rocket let him go and instead focussed on keeping in front of Motor King and Gary Huang. ‘A good result for me’ he declared, the Shanghai based driver continued ‘its my first race on carpet with the new car so we still need to try more setup’.

Another to get surprised by the drop in traction Motor King was still pleased with his final. Feeling his car was ok in the last two qualifiers and making no change to his car, the RCI local said it must have been a drop in temperatures. Stating that the ‘A-main was super difficult’ he focussed on driving smoothly and bring it home in 3rd. Gary Huang would end the race a distant 4th with Jimmy Qian once again in 5th, all 8 drivers finishing in the position they started.

Once again Masaaki Kiyoyi was in a class of his own as he led the race from tone to tone, pulling out a near 4 second gap by the end. All Stock drivers using an identical handout Scorpion motor, it was Tino Wu that ended the race in 2nd, with Awesomatix team mate Zhao Jia completing the top 3.

Grid confirmed with Rocket Zhang starting 2nd

Rocket Zhang will start this afternoon’s 8 minute A-main from 2nd on the grid, behind pole man Jin Sawada, having notched up his third 2nd place finish in qualifying. The Serpent driver will start ahead of Motor King, whose changes failed to improve his Yokomo car in Q4, while Gary Huang and Jimmy Qian will start 4th and 5th respectively. In the Stock class, Tino Wu will start from 2nd, winning the tie break with Zhao Jia, having put in the faster time in Q4, while Hiroyuki Onda and Hua Huang complete the top 5. For the finals, 7 drivers qualify directly into the mains with the winner of the lower main bumping up to make it 8-car finals due to the small track size.
