Sobue與Ratheisky擴大OneTen連勝紀錄 | Sobue & Ratheisky extend OneTen winning streaks

Akio Sobue進一步擴大了自己在2018/19賽季由Infinity冠名的OneTen系列賽的連勝紀錄,他在廣州贏下了又一場8分鐘的A組決賽。在昨天已經提前問鼎賽季總冠軍的這位日本車手領跑了這場頗為有序且單調的決賽,每位車手都為了確保完賽而選擇了有節制的操控方式。最終,前四名選手按照發車順序帶回,Sawada第二個衝線,接著是Nicholas Lee與Jan Ratheisky;後兩位車手在比賽初始階段有精彩的追逐戰。本地小將馬浩然以第五名完賽。賽前大家討論最多的問題是如何在高速賽道上撐過8分鐘,Sobue說他開得非常柔順,只在起步的頭幾圈稍微激進了一點以建立起領先優勢。最終他率先衝線而他的6300mAh電池還維持在較高的電壓上。儘管已經拿下總冠軍,這位Infinity車手說他依然會參加在香港舉行的最後兩站比賽,他希望可以在系列賽中保持完美的不敗戰績。

Akio Sobue has maintained his perfect record at the 2018/19 OneTen Series presented by Infinity having taken the win in the 8-minute A-main here in Guangzhou. Having already wrapped up the title with the win in round 5 yesterday, the Japanese driver led a mostly processional race as racers drove with battery conservation in mind. In the end, the top 4 finished in the positions they started with Sawada crossing the line in 2nd, while Nicholas Lee and Jan Ratheisky, who had a good battle early on, completed the top 4 with Haoran Ma in 5th. The talk before the race was trying to finish the 8 minutes on this high speed track and Sobue said he drove the race very smoothly, having pushed hard in the first few laps to build a gap. He was able to maintain his lead and in the end had a lot of power left in his 6300mAh cells. Despite having taken the title, the Infinity driver said he will for sure be in Hong Kong for the final two rounds saying he is aiming for a perfect score in the series.

Akio的隊友Sawada使用5600mAh電池參賽,他的IF14在衝線完賽後的一圈低電壓保護關機,引發了一起大直路上的事故。回到維修區,他測量出自己的電池電壓為6.4V;他將自己的成績定義為「幸運的亞軍」,因為他當時已經沒辦法再多跑哪怕一圈。與他的隊友一樣,Jin在起步階段較為激進,然後力爭柔和地巡航並保住位置;由於三四名的纏鬥,Jin的戰術起到了效果。

Team mate Sawada, who was running a 5600mAh pack, had his IF14 shut down on his in-lap after the race, causing an accident after the main straight. Checking his pack afterwards he only had 6.4V remaining and so declared his position as ‘a lucky 2nd’ as he would not have gone another lap. Like his team mate Jin started hard and then drove smooth to maintain track position, helped by the battle going on behind him.

Nicholas Lee拿下領獎台上的最後一個位置,這位Yokomo車手被捲入了全場唯一的追逐戰。他在起步時被Ratheisky超過,但在幾圈之後又奪回了自己的位置,他在操控台下方的小直路末段完成了這個漂亮的超車動作。他抱怨說等待決賽開始的時間太長,導致他的胎溫下降,車架在比賽的前幾分鐘沒有抓地力;待輪胎進入了工作溫度,他立即就向Xray車手發起了挑戰。Nicholas看起來一度有機會追近Sawada,但他開始擔心電池能否撐到比賽結束,最終選擇了保守的策略,守住第三。然而實際上他並不需要這樣做,賽後他發現電池中仍留有充足的電量。

Nicholas Lee would claim the final step of the podium in 3rd, the Yokomo driver being involved in the only real battle in the race, as he was passed by Ratheisky at the start but got the German back a few laps later with a very nice move at the end of the pit straight. Blaming losing the position at the start on having to wait too long for the race to get going which caused his tires to cool down and lose traction, the Yokomo driver said once his tires came in he was able to re-challenge the Xray driver. Looking to push to catch Sawada ahead, Nicholas started to get concerned about whether his battery would go the distance and so held back, but there was no need because following the race he checked and his LiPo still had ample power left.

Ratheisky連續參加了兩輪決賽。他在起步時超過了Nicholas,他感覺車子的狀態在前兩分鐘棒極了,但接著車架就開始變得越來越推頭,直到完全沒有了轉向。Jan裝備了8200mAh的電池,所以他全程都可以全力催動電子設備,無需考慮電量的問題。但他感覺大容量電池帶來的額外重量對車架平衡的影響有些過大了。

Ratheisky, who was running back to back finals, got the pass on Nicholas at the start and felt his car was great in the first 2 minutes but then said it started to push and it only got worse as the race went on and he was left with no steering at the end. Jan had installed an 8200mAh battery in his Xray which meant he was able to push the electronics hard all race long but felt the extra weight of the bigger battery upset the balance of his car too much.

在Scorpion Stock組別的決賽再次成為Ratheisky的表演。德國人率先衝線,完成這場平靜的比賽;他的對手,香港Mugen車手Yan Cheung落後8秒完賽。第三名是駕駛Awesomatix的另一位香港車手Ali Lee。InHobby的兩位車手劉家榮與何漢斌分獲第四與第五名。

The Scorpion Stock class, which runs identical Scorpion 13.5T motors, once again belonged to Ratheisky. An uneventful race for the German he crossed the line to take the win by 8 seconds from his rival, Hong Kong Mugen driver Yan Cheung. Third spot would go to another Hong Kong driver Ali Lee, driving an Awesomatix, while the InHobby pairing of Jiarong Liu and Hanbin He completed the top half of the field.

第六站決賽發車排位已定 | Grids complete in Guangzhou

在廣州飛騰賽車場舉行的由Infinity冠名的OneTen系列賽第六站預賽全部完成,8分鐘單輪決賽的發車排位已定。在Sweep Modified組別中,Jin Sawada依靠第四輪預賽的第二名成績鎖定決賽第二發車位。Nicholas Lee將從第三位發車,他的預賽積分與Jan Ratheisky和勞敏皓相同,後兩位車手分列第四與第五位。

The grids are complete here at Feiteng Raceway at round 6 of the OneTen Series presented by Infinity for this afternoon’s single 8-minute A-main. The Sweep Modified class saw Jin Sawada confirm his 2nd place starting spot on the grid as he ended Q4 in 2nd, again behind his team mate, who set the fast 4-minute run of the day. Nicholas Lee will start the final from 3rd on the grid having won the 3 way tie break with Jan Ratheisky and Lao Minhao, who will start 4th and 5th respectively.


在Scorpion Stock組別中,位居Ratheisky之後發車的將是來自香港的Mugen車手Yan Cheung。第三位和第五位分屬InHobby車手劉家榮與何漢斌,Awesomatix車手Ali Lee將夾在這兩位隊友之間,從第四位起步。

Behind Ratheisky in the Scorpion Stock class, runner up in Hong Kong Yan Cheung will start from 2nd place driving his Mugen. Third place on the grid will be Jiarong Liu with his team mate Hanbin He in 5th, the InHobby pairing split by Awesomatix driver Ali Lee in 4th.

Sobue與Ratheisky獲得第六站桿位 | Sobue & Ratheisky to start Rd6 A-mains from pole

Akio Sobue繼續統治Sweep Modified組別,這位日本車手拿下第三輪預賽,提前一輪獲得第六站的TQ。Jan Ratheisky在Stock組別中同樣強勢地提前拿下TQ;在Modified組別中,德國人拼上了一套新胎來狙擊Sobue,他領跑了約3分鐘,但在最後一分鐘分別被日本人和Nicholas Lee超越。Sawada獲得第四,勞敏皓第五。Sobue在本輪繼續使用舊胎參賽,這一次他用兩套跑過兩輪的舊胎拼出了一套輪胎進行比賽。他感覺輪胎在比賽的後2分鐘進入了狀態。對於最後一輪預賽和單輪8分鐘的決賽,Sobue手握兩套新胎。

Akio Sobue has continued his dominance of the Sweep Modified class as the Japanese driver took the 3rd round of qualifying and wrapped up the top qualifying spot here early in Guangzhou for round 6 of the series with one qualifier still left to run. Jan Ratheisky did a similar feat in the Scorpion Stock class as the Xray racer once again was not headed by any of the local racers. In modified, the German bolted on a fresh set of Sweep handout tires and looked set to stop Sobue’s dominance, leading the heat for 3 minutes, but unfortunately fell back in the last minute which allowed Akio and Nicholas Lee passed. Sawada took 4th, while Lao Minhao completed the top 5. Sobue was once again on used tires, using a combination of 2 run old rear tires on the front and rear of his IF14, and said he felt the traction improve in the last 2 minutes of his run as the tires came in. For the final qualifier and the single 8-minute long A-main, Sobue still has two brand new sets of tires.

Nicholas Lee將自己的表現歸功於新胎,他的Yokomo BD9在這一輪表現穩定,沒有性能衰退問題,他甚至在最後一圈做出了自己的最快單圈。新加坡人對於第四輪預賽和決賽並沒有什麼期待,他說,「我已經做到自己的極限了」。

Nicholas Lee put his performance down to new tires, which helped the balance of his Yokomo BD9 and didn’t experience any drop off in performance throughout his run, his fastest lap of the round being his last lap. The Singaporean wasn’t very upbeat for Q4, and the final, saying ‘this was the maximum I can do’.

Ratheisky對於第三輪預賽感到失望,他說,「我不知道怎麼才能在3分鐘以後依然足夠快」。這位Xray車手在最後一分鐘的衰退非常嚴重。他進行了多種嘗試,包括不同的輪胎準備方式、操控方式等,但依舊無法讓輪胎的工作時限得到突破。

Ratheisky was frustrated following Q3, saying ‘I don’t know how to be fast for more than 3 minutes with these tires’, the Xray driver suffering a pretty severe drop in performance in the final minute of the run, having set the pace up to that point. Having tried a number of things concerning tire prep and driving style to prevent this he still seems to be suffering from tire drop off more than most.

Jin Sawada說他的車子在這一輪並不好跑。這位日本車手使用一套輪胎跑完了前三輪預賽。從下一輪開始,他終於可以換上新胎了,全日本冠軍將全力以赴確保自己能夠在決賽時從第二位發車。

Jin Sawada said his car was not ok in that run. The Japanese driver had completed all of qualifying with the same tires and now they were done. Looking forward to using new tires again in Q4, the Japanese National Champion will push hard in the final qualifier to consolidate his 2nd on the grid.

第二輪預賽簡報 | Q2 Update

Sweep Modified組別第二輪預賽的前兩名依舊是Infinity二人組Akio Sobue與Jin Sawada。勞敏皓獲得本輪第三,他在第一輪預賽時就有很快的車速,但不幸失誤撞車;這一輪Xray小將使用新胎下地而且發揮出色,完賽成績僅比TQ慢1.6秒。Jan Ratheisky落後勞敏皓1秒衝線獲得第四。在Stock組別中,Jan再度獲勝,Yan Cheung慢4秒完賽,劉家榮、Ali Lee與Infinity設計師Kotonori Fujiwara分獲第三至第五名。

While the top 2 remained the same at the front of the grid in the Sweep Modified class with the Infinity pairing of Akio Sobue and Jin Sawada topping Q2, behind it was quick youngster Lao Minhao who was 3rd fastest. Showing very good pace in Q1, before crashing, this time around the Xray driver was able to keep it all together with new tires to take a competitive 3rd, only 1.6 seconds back on TQ. Jan Ratheisky was a further 1 second back in 4th, having started the heat very fast before dropping back. Jan would also top the 2nd Stock qualifier with Yan Cheung less than 4 seconds behind this time, while Jiarong Liu, Ali Lee and Infinity designer Kotonori Fujiwara completing the top 5.
