Japanese driver Akio Sobue has wrapped up the overall Modified victory in Rd3 of the OneTen Series presented by Infinity. In a repeat of the opening leg of the triple mains, the Infinity driver was able to pull clear of the chasing pack, lead by Nicholas Lee. The top 4 running in the same order as they started, it was Andy Moore who cracked first, crashing out on the now infamous main straight kerb, retiring on the spot. Nicholas Lee lead another 3 way battle, this time with Jin Sawada and Jan Ratheisky following behind. Jin was holding position until a main shaft bearing on his IF14 failed causing him to strip his spur gear and putting him out.
His retirement let Jan get up the back of Lee, the German putting in the 2nd fastest lap of the race to get there, having started 6th. While not as aggressive as in A1 he pushed the Singaporean hard but didn’t get close enough to make a move despite finishing the race only 3 tenths back. Awesomatix driver Fai Ho would take 4th, some 5 seconds back, leading Hay Lai to the line who completed the top half of field.
Just as in Modified, Jan wrapped up the win early, this time he was pushed all the way by Yan Cheung, who set the fastest lap of the race. Ratheisky who was on old tires was kept honest by the Hong Kong driver and was only 3 tenths back at the end of the 4 minutes. Jimmy So, Angus Leung and Joey Chan completed the top 5.
