Sobue力克Ratheisky勝出OneTen第二站首場預賽 / Sobue heads Rathiesky in OneTen Rd2 opening qualifier

延續昨天在OneTen第一站比賽中的優異表現,Akio Sobue在今天勝出Sweep Modified組別的首輪預賽。對於這位日本車手來說,這是又一輪發揮穩定且順利的預賽,Xray明星車手Jan Ratheisky及另一位Infinity車手Jin Sawada分獲本輪二、三名。Nicholas Koh在這一輪表現尤其突出力壓黃揆笙獲得第四。在Stock組別中,Jan再度證明他與其他對手不在同一層面,最接近他的選手依然是常駐中國的日本選手Masaaki Kyoyi。

Picking up where he left off in Round 1 of the OneTen series yesterday, Akio Sobue has taken the opening round of qualifying in the Sweep Modified class. Another solid but uneventful run for the Japanese driver he headed Xray star Jan Ratheisky and Infinity team mate Jin Sawada in 3rd, with an impressive run by Nicholas Koh to take 4th while Gary Huang rounded out the top 5. In the Stock class it was Jan who was once again in a class of his own in the 4 minute qualifier, with his closest rival coming again in the form of locally based Japanese driver Masaaki Kyoyi.

在這一輪使用一套全新的Sweep公發胎下地,Akio感覺這套輪胎的平衡性非常好;他決定將這套輪胎封存,留到今天下午進行8分鐘決賽時再使用。領先Ratheisky約4秒完賽的Sobue在這一輪做出了本週末迄今為止的最快單圈10.260。

Running his second set of tires in the morning run, Akio feels this set of handout Sweep tires have a very good balance and will now put them away for this afternoon’s single 8-minute final. Ending some 4 seconds clear of Ratheisky, Sobue was able to put in the fastest lap of the weekend thus far with a 10.260.

在今天早晨的單輪控制練習中,Jan對他的Xray T4 2019做了很大的設定調整,包括增加後束角、降低後Droop、使用更軟的差速、減少Bump Steer同時讓二樓板的扭動更多。他對這些調整帶來的改變非常滿意,成功拿下本輪第二。在這一輪沒有發生任何碰撞,他說車子變得更加易於操控,但他依然覺得車架欠缺一些高速時的側向抓地力,所以他可能會選擇更薄的六角結合器來改進這個問題。

Having tested a big change in the morning’s single controlled practice, which saw him give his Xray T4 19 more rear toe, less rear droop, softer diff, less bump steer and more top flex, Jan Ratheisky was much happier with his car in Q1 and ended the session 2nd fastest. Reporting a clean run, he said the car was more drivable but feels he is still missing some high speed side bite and so may change the narrower wheel hexes to improve this.

儘管在直路尾撞到了內側護欄,耽誤了很多時間,但Jin Sawada僅落後德國人0.5秒衝線。他在賽後說車子在踩油門時向左偏。Infinity設計師Fujiwara先生會下一輪開始前對車架做仔細的檢查同時調整一些設定,主要是改變滾動中心來提升過彎速度。

Jin Sawada ended his race just 0.5 behind the German, despite making fairly heavy contact with the barrier on the inside of the end of the straight, saying that afterwards the car was pulling to the left on power. Along with a thorough check through of his IF14 chassis, Infinity designer Fujiwara-san will make some changes to the car, focused on the roll centres to improve the car’s corner speed.

在昨天多次獲得單輪第五名的Nicholas Koh終於在今天做出突破,殺入前四。他感覺今天的抓地力比昨天略有下降,但他依然會使用這一輪的設定跑第二輪預賽。除了避讓慢車,Nicholas在這一輪跑得非常乾淨,這位馬來西亞小將在倒數第二組跑預賽,他希望自己在下一輪依舊有出色表現。

Finally breaking into the top 4, having had a number of top 5 runs yesterday, Nicholas Koh felt that the traction was a little lower than yesterday but will retain the setup on his Xray T4 18 for Q2. A mostly clean run, having just one small moment avoiding traffic, the Malaysian running in the 2nd last heat, he hopes to put in another clean one in the next run.

Scorpion Stock組別依然是Jan的天下,他保持了自己的完美記錄,領先Masaaki Kyoyi和Heng完賽。昨天殺入前三的Kenny Yan和Simon Wang分獲本輪第四與第五。

The Scorpion stock class was again an all Jan affair as the German extended his perfect record in the class in front of Masaaki Kyoyi with Heng Heng, yesterday’s podium finisher Kenny Yan and Simon Wang rounding out the top 5 for the first qualifier.

車架聚焦 Chassis Focus – Jan Ratheisky

車架 | Chassis – Xray T4 2019
馬達 | Motor – Hobbywing 4.5T
電調 | ESC – Hobbywing XR10
電池 | Batteries – EZ 6600mAh
輪胎 | Tires – Sweep (handout)
遙控器/舵機 | Radio/Servo – KO Propo/Savox
車殼 | Bodyshell – Montech Racer

說明 – 德國車手Jan Ratheisky使用Xray T4 2019獲得OneTen系列賽首輪Modified組別的第三名,這也是他首次使用這款新車。他在星期五才裝好這台車,使用他的地毯場基礎設定下地。雖然感覺車架總體表現還OK,但他感到自己還需要更多一些轉向來應對RCI緊窄的賽道。他嘗試讓車位更甩,但他承認這個設定方向過於激進,導致了他昨天第二輪決賽的大撞車。今天他將會使用保守一些的設定下地,加入本賽季第二輪比賽的角逐。

Remarks – Finishing 3rd in the opening round of Modified at the OneTen series yesterday, German driver Jan Ratheisky was using the 2019 edition of Xray’s T4 platform for the first time. Having only built the car on Friday he started with his base carpet setup and while the feeling was ok, he lacked some steering on the tight RCI track. Making the rear loose to get the car to turn, he admitted going too far in that direction which resulted in his big crash in A2 yesterday and so will turn it back for today’s 2nd round of the series.

This set up an exciting battle between the Japanese pair, with Sobue unable to find a way passed despite running so close for the final minute of the race.

Sobue與Ratheisky在OneTen首輪賽事中斬獲完美戰績 / Perfect results for Sobue & Ratheisky at OneTen Rd1

在Sweep Modified組別的第二輪決賽中,Akio Sobue以完美的全勝戰績收官OneTen系列賽第一賽季的第一輪賽事。這位Infinity車手在全天比賽中沒有犯過任何一次錯誤,在本輪依舊力壓隊友Jin Sawada,率先衝線。從控制練習開始一直使用同一套輪胎下地,日本選手打算在明天繼續使用這套輪胎參加本賽季的第二輪賽事。對於Jan Ratheisky來說,這一輪比賽堪稱悲劇,他在進直路時撞到賽道隔離欄,整台Xray撞毀在賽道外牆上。這一事故讓黃揆笙上升到第三位完賽,張方洲則從6車出發,最終第四名帶回。

Leg 2 of the Sweep Modified class saw Akio Sobue complete the clean sweep by taking the win and with it the overall win of round 1 of the new for this season OneTen Series. The Infinity driver never put a foot wrong the whole day and despite some moments while lapping traffic he put in the perfect run to win, once again in front of his team mate Jin Sawada. Still running on the same set of Sweep handout tires since the beginning of the day, he will continue to use them for tomorrow’s second round of the series. It was not a good final for Jan Ratheisky however as a coming together with the barrier coming on to the straight saw his Xray sent into the outside wall, causing extensive damage. The crash promoted Gary Huang to 3rd with Rocket Zhang from 6th on the grid to 4th.

儘管在Modified組別的決賽中發生事故,Jan Ratheisky依舊順利斬獲Scorpion Stock組別的冠軍;他第二輪決賽的表現證明瞭他為什麼是全世界最優秀的Stock選手之一。沒有受到任何挑戰的德國人儘管數次放緩腳步以安全超越慢車,但他依舊以近一圈的領先優勢順利勝出這一輪。Yokomo車手Kenny Yan獲得本輪第二,戴駿拿下第三。

While having a difficult race in Modified, Jan Ratheisky wrapped up the title in the Scorpion Stock class, with his second win, in a display of why he is one of the best stock class racers in the World. Never threatened he won by nearly a lap and apart from having to slow up to avoid battling lapped drivers he had yet another uneventful race. Yokomo driver Kenny Yang took the runner up spot with Tommy Dai completing the top 3 in the second final.

Sobue與Ratheisky獲得OneTen上海站TQ / Sobue & Ratheisky take TQ honours at OneTen Shanghai

OneTen系列賽首輪的預賽已經全部結束,Akio Sobue將在今天下午的三輪決賽中從桿位發車,這位Infinity車手全取三輪預賽。Sobue的隊友Jin Sawada在第二輪預賽中獲得第二,Xray車手Jan Ratheisky第三;第三輪也是最後一輪決賽中,兩位車手則交換了排名。黃揆笙獲得預賽總排名第四,其後是Nicholas Koh和狀態有所上升的張方洲。

Qualifying has ended for the opening round of the OneTen series and it is Akio Sobue who will start this afternoon’s triple A-mains from pole position. Completing a clean sweep of qualifying the Infinity driver took all 3 rounds, with round 2 seeing him finish ahead of team mate Jin Sawada and Xray driver Jan Ratheisky, with 2nd and 3rd positions reversed in the final round. Gary Huang was again best of the rest, with Nicholas Koh set to complete the top 5 in front of an improving Rocket Zhang.

Sobue在全部三輪預賽中沒有調整過設定,在決賽前他也不準備做任何調整;他評價自己的車架說,「容易操控而且超級穩定」,三輪預賽中,他的完賽圈數完全一致。談到決賽,他說這個賽道非常難以超車,所以他需要努力建立起領先優勢,與後車集團保持距離。

Sobue has run all of qualifying with no change to his IF14 and is set to leave it that way for the finals, saying is car is ‘easy to drive and super stable’, with him running the same laps at the start of the race as at the end. Asked about the finals he said it is very difficult to pass on this track and so he will hope to get his head down and build up a gap to the chasing group.

Jin Sawada在最後一輪預賽中做出個人今日最佳成績,儘管落後於Jan跑完這一輪,他依舊對車架的設定方向感到滿意。在第三輪嘗試了更硬的避震彈簧後,他打算在決賽中換回第二輪的彈簧,因為車子在第三輪有一些難以操控。

Jin Sawada ended qualifying with his fastest run of the day, despite finishing 3rd to Jan, and is now happy with the setup direction of his car. Having switched to harder springs in that 3rd round, he will now switch back to what he used in Q2 as it was a little difficult to drive.

Jan Ratheisky同樣在抓地力提升的第三輪跑出個人最好成績,以第二名完賽。在首輪預賽之後改變了設定方向,將車尾扭動性調整到了最大,他對於車架的現狀很滿意,在決賽前僅會進行小幅度調教。談到他的決賽策略,尤其是針對Jin Sawada,德國人說,「我會全力以赴,頂住他的菊花」。

Jan Ratheisky also finished qualifying with his fastest run as the traction came up again, taking 2nd in Q3. Having went in a different direction with his setup after the opening qualifier he has now gone for maximum flex in the rear of the car and is very happy with the feeling set to only make small changes for the final. Asked about the race and Jin in particular, the German said ‘I will put my race on and will push his ass’.

黃揆笙將在決賽中從第四位起步,這位Xray車手不太習慣地毯賽道,目前依然在為他的T4尋找滿意的更平衡的設定。他感覺賽道的抓地力已經恢復到正常水平,所以目前設定調整的重點是獲得更多轉向,他將與隊友們通力合作,想出解決方案。

Gary Huang will start the A-main in 4th, the Xray driver not used to racing on carpet and so is chasing a setup on his T4, trying to find the right balance between steering and being too aggressive. Feeling that traction is now back to normal having been lower than in practice up to this point the main goal is to find more steering and so is working with his team mates to find a good solution.

在Stock組別中,Jan繼續包攬第二與第三預賽的頭名,鎖定決賽桿位。除了在每輪開始前重新粘胎,這位Xray車手對於決賽並有什麼其他可說的。Masaaki Kyoyi將在決賽中從第二位發車,其後是Heng;與Heng同分的Simon Wang排名預賽第四,第五是Kenny Yan。

In the Stock class Jan again took the 2nd and 3rd rounds of qualifying to cement his position at the top, the Xray driver have nothing really to report other than needing to re glue the tires between rounds. Masaaki Kyoyi will start from 2nd ahead of Heng in 3rd who was tied on points with Simon Wang, with Kenny Yan completing the top 5.
