Sobue在香港拿下第四站首輪預賽 | Sobue opens up Rd4 in Hong Kong with TQ

由Infinity冠名的OneTen系列賽第四站於今天上午正式開跑,在一輪控制練習後,緊接著將進行4輪4分鐘的預賽來確定今天下午8分鐘單輪決賽的發車排位。Akio Sobue再一次成為所有選手的標桿,跑出首輪預賽的最快單圈成績並領先自己的兩位隊友Andy Moore與Jin Sawada約3秒完賽。Hay Lai駕駛Xpress獲得本輪第四,Serpent車手Felix Law是倒數第二組最快的選手,排名本輪第五。在第一輪預賽使用新胎的Sobue知道他必須安全地跑出一個好成績,因為Nicholas Lee這一輪使用的是舊胎;賽會限定每位車手在整個週末只能使用5套輪胎,而Yokomo廠車手比他多省下了一套新胎。使用與昨天同樣設定的IF14下地,Akio和他的所有對手一樣都在實施輪胎策略,每個人都想為單輪8分鐘的決賽省下一套新胎。

Round 4 of the OneTen series presented by Infinity kicked off early this morning with one round of controlled practice followed by the first of 4 rounds of 4 minute qualifiers which will determine the grid for this afternoon’s single 8-minute A-main. Akio Sobue was again the pace setter this morning, running the fastest lap of the first rounds of qualifying to take a 3 seconds advantage over Infinity team mates Andy Moore and Jin Sawada. Hay Lai would take 4th for the round driving his Xpress with Serpent driver Felix Law fastest of those running in the 2nd fastest heat, in 5th. Running on new tires for Q1 Sobue knew that with Nicholas Lee on old tires he had to put in a safe run, the Yokomo driver having saved one more of the 5 allocated tires than the Japanese driver. Continuing to run his Infinity IF14 unchanged since yesterday, Akio, like all his competitors, are now playing the tire strategy game with all drivers expected to keep one new set for the single 8 minute main.

Andy Moore拿下本輪第二,和他的兩位隊友一樣,他也使用了新胎;不過他的輪胎比隊友多跑了2圈,因為這是他在昨天最後一輪決賽中使用的輪胎,當時他很快就壞車退賽。他將自己本輪的表現簡單總結為「乾淨的一輪」,他認為自己還是沒有Akio快,但已經接近了。這位前世界冠軍希望車架能有更多的轉向,他說關鍵在於不要過分激進地操控車架進而讓輪胎有過溫的風險;今天上午,TRC的天氣非常炎熱。隊友Jin Sawada做出了和他幾乎一樣的成績,兩位車手的差距僅有0.011秒。

Taking 2nd for the round Andy Moore, like his two team mates was on new tires, however the British driver’s tires had 2 laps on them from yesterday’s 3rd A-main before he was taken out. Putting in what he described as simply ‘a clean run’ he feels he doesn’t have the same speed as Akio but is close. Still looking for more steering, the former World Champion said the key is to not overdrive the car and risk overheating the tires, conditions at TRC very hot this morning. Team mate Sawada put in an almost identical run to his team mate, the pair separated by just 11 thousandths of a second.

Xpress車手Hay Lai獲得本輪第四,但他抱怨賽前等候其他車手上場的時間過長,以至於他的輪胎溫度降得過多。儘管如此,他第四名的成績依舊力壓他的香港同胞Felix Law、Kowk Ching Lung、Carven Chow和Fai Ho。Nicholas Lee使用舊胎,僅獲得第九名。

Xpress driver Hay Lai took 4th for this round, but complained that he had to wait too long before other drivers in the top heat put their cars down on track and felt his tires had cooled too much. Despite this, his 4th for the round placed him ahead of fellow Hong Kong drivers Felix Law, Kwok Ching Lung and Carven Chow with Fai Ho completing the top 8. Nicholas Lee on used tires was 9th.

在Stock組別中,Jan Ratheisky延續了昨天奪冠的狀態,他在首輪預賽中依靠穩健的發揮勝出,但領先優勢僅有0.5秒。駕駛Mugen參賽的Yan Cheung獲得第二名,他全程緊逼德國選手,同時做出本來最快單圈。第三名Derek Yuen在昨天發揮欠佳,未能進入A組,但今天他只比本輪TQ慢了1秒;Jimmy So和CY Leung分獲第四與第五。

In the Stock class, Jan Ratheisky continued where he left off in Rd3 of the Championship yesterday by taking the opening round of qualifying with his Xray with a very consistent run that saw him take it by the very narrow margin of half of a second. Runner up yesterday Yan Cheung, driving a Mugen, pushed the German all the way, setting the fastest lap of the round in the process. 3rd place went to Derek Yuen, who had a difficult day yesterday, not making the main, but was just one second off TQ in the opening round, with Jimmy So and CY Leung completing the top 5.
