Jin Sawada takes pole position at OneTen Rd3

Jin Sawada is the top qualifier for the 3rd round of the OneTen series in Guangzhou having taken the first 2 rounds of qualifying, however, it was Gary Huang who will start just behind the Infinity driver, that put in the fastest run of the day on his way to taking the 3rd and final round of qualifying. Behind the lead pair, it was Yugo Nagashima who finally put in a better run in the 3rd qualifier after two difficult runs prior to that point but will have to work his way through the field, set to start from 5th. Just ahead it is the Xray pairing of Marco Ma and Minhao Lao who will start the triple 4-minute mains from 3rd and 4th on the grid. ‘Maximum danger’ was how Jin described his final run, the Japanese driver crashing in the center of the track having caught one of the dots. Looking to the final Jin said it won’t be easy to run without mistakes but even if he makes a mistake it will difficult for those behind to make a pass due to the height of the curbs.

Putting in the only 29 lap run of qualifying, Huang was pleased with his car saying that it always had the pace but this time he didn’t make any mistakes. Saving a fresh set of tires for the final, the Xray driver mentioned that the tires drop off quite a lot after a few runs but having set his fastest run on 4-run tires he attributes it to the higher traction combined with the lower grip of the tires making the car actually easier to drive. Closer to Jin than he has been at any stage during the past season and a half, Gary says he will push hard in the finals and go for the win.

Starting 3rd will be local young gun Marco Ma, the Xray driver having a difficult end to qualifying but is well-positioned to pick up the pieces should the lead pair come together. Teammate Minhao Lao will start from 4th on the grid with Serpent driver Yugo Nagashima finally overcoming a difficult start to qualifying, where he broke a servo and stripped a spur gear, to start 5th.

First qualifier in Guangzhou goes to Sawada

The opening round of qualifying for the 3rd round of the OneTen Series presented by Infinity has been completed and it was Jin Sawada, winner of the opening two rounds of the series in Shanghai that was again fastest following the first qualifier. A low turnout at AMA, in 2nd place it was Chinese National champion Gary Hunag in 2nd with two up and coming Chinese Xray racers Marco Ma and Minhao Lao in 3rd and 4th respectively. Yugo Nakashima and Stick King both had problems in their heat with both suffering servo failures, the former during the run and the latter before the 6 minutes even started. Speaking to Sawada, the Infinity driver described the run as super difficult, comparing the ultra-high traction to that of teammate Akio Sobue’s home track back in Japan. Not a fan of the conditions, he said that just a tiny input on the transmitter resulted in huge steering, admitting that it was super difficult to complete the 6 minutes without a mistake.

Ending up in 2nd place, Gary Huang had the pace to compete with Sawada, but admitted to making two many mistakes, 3-times in total. Making a mistake early in the run, he was catching Sawada before the next mistake knocked him out of contention. Not planning any change to his Xray chassis, Gary running the 2019 version of the T4 chassis for the last time this weekend before receiving his 2020 T4 next week at the SIGP, his aim is to focus on his driving. Feeling that traction changed a lot between yesterday’s free practice and today’s race, he felt that yesterday the track was much easier.

Another Xray driver in 3rd, young Marco Ma had made a change to the roll center prior to his run which had the opposite effect of what they hoped and instead saif his car suffered too much from traction roll. Reverting back to his previous setting ahead of Q2, Marco said he also needs more track time, having been too busy in school recently has meant he hasn’t had much running ahead of this race.

Another to have been focussed on school recently and so missed on runnings, Minhao ‘Alfred’ Lao was struggling even more with traction roll and he and his father will make some changes to the car’s suspension to try and reduce it for the next round. Zhu Min Jiang completed the top 5.

Track Focus – Amazing Indoor Arena

賽事 | Name – 2019/20 OneTen Series Rd3 & 4
承辦方 | Host – Amazing Indoor Arena (AMA)
地點 | Location – Guangzhou
行駛方向 | Direction – Clockwise
路面 | Surface – Asphalt

Originally intended to take place in Hong Kong, rounds 3 and 4 of the OneTen Series presented by Infinity made the late switch to the Amazing Indoor Arena in Guangzhou due to the ongoing situation in Hong Kong. Located in an industrial zone on the east side of the main city, the AMA was opened in 2017 and is one of the country’s premier racing facilities. As the name suggests this is an indoor track that features a perfectly smooth asphalt surface and currently has a very fast flowing layout, with quick modified lap times in the mid 12 to 13 seconds. The facility has a large well-stocked hobby store, air-conditioned private pit rooms as well as general open pitting area, with all racers at this event deciding to work out of the large air-conditioned pit area.
