As expected Akio Sobue has taken his 5th overall win of the OneTen Series presented by Infinity and in doing so has wrapped up the overall Sweep Modified title. Winning the 2nd leg of A-mains today in Guangzhou, and setting the fastest lap of the weekend with a 16.984, Akio was the only driver to break into the 16 second lap barrier all weekend to take the title in commanding fashion and allowing him to sit out the final leg.
With Sobue absent from Leg 3, it meant that Sawada would effectively start from pole position and the Japanese National Champion took full advantage to take a clean start and pull out a comfortable gap on eventual 2nd place finisher Gary Huang, the Xray driver finally managing a good result.
The final main would see a number of incidents, most notably a coming together with Haoran Ma and Jan Ratheisky, the Xray pairing having a heavy coming together coming onto the pit straight as the German tried to pressure his way passed having been stuck behind the youngster. The resulting penalty saw Jan lose a number of places which allowed local racer Zhipeng Cao, driving for InHobby, to take 3rd place in A3, to go with his 3rd in A2, from 8th on the grid and secure the final overall podium spot in round 5. Gary Huang would end up 4th overall, with Ratheisky in 5th and Nicholas Lee in 6th.
In the Scorpion Stock class, while it was a formality, Jan Ratheisky too wrapped up the overall season title by taking the 2nd A-main in front of the InHobby driver pairing of Jiarong Liu and Hanbin He. Able to sit out Leg 3 to focus more on the modified class, the win went to He, with Liu in 2nd and Yan Cheung in 3rd, the Hong Kong Mugen driver showing good pace in all finals but unlucky to have a number of incidents, meaning he ended up 5th overall behind Ali Lee who was also unlucky in 4th.
