Completing the perfect weekend, topping all sessions over both rounds 5 and 6 of the OneTen Series in RCI V2, Yugo Nagashima took a commanding win in the 8-minute A-main after the battle with JJ Wang failed to materialise, despite the American putting in the fastest lap of the race. Motor King would complete the round 6 podium after Rocket Zhang started to feel unwell near the end of the race while in 3rd, eventually finishing in 4th. While the win looked straight forward, Yugo was quick to say it was ‘not easy’, elaborating by saying that his car was super loose in the opening 2 minutes, while JJ’s car was very competitive at the start. Making a small mistake in the chicane while being chased, when the tires came good he could get his head down and drive a controlled race, winning by a 4.5 second margin.
JJ simply said ‘I tried, but just not enough this time’, the Xray driver pushing hard and closing the deficit to Yugo in the opening minute but dropping back as his car started to ‘run out of pace’. Again having a slow start, which let the Serpent driver pull out a margin on lap one, JJ was quick to congratulate Yugo on his clean sweep.
Taking third on the last lap from Rocket, the Serpent driver still getting 3rd overall for the Shanghai round, Motor King said his final was not so good as the traction was super low, making it difficult to drive. Running the Yokomo BD9 as he hasn’t received his BD10 yet, the Shanghai drive was slowly closing on Rocket from the midway point and when his fellow RCI V2 local started having troubles he made the pass.
Winning the Stock class, AI Luo led from start to finish, building up a gap on Heng who ended the race as runner up, just less than 3 seconds behind. However it was Simon Wang who finished in 3rd and took the overall Shanghai win thanks to his win in round 5 yesterday. He was pushed by Hua Hua all race, the Awesomatix driver finishing up only 0.5 seconds at the end of the 8-minutes.
