Sobue在廣州拿下首輪預賽 | Guangzhou qualifying Rd1 goes to Sobue

2018/19賽季由Infinity冠名的OneTen系列賽來到正值氣候涼爽的廣州,在飛騰賽車場開始第五站的比賽。暫居積分榜首位的日本車手Akio Sobue勝出本站的首輪預賽。這位Infinity車手——本賽季的標桿人物——領先隊友Jin Sawada 3秒完賽。全國冠軍黃揆笙排名本輪第三;13歲小將馬浩然落後2秒位居第四;Jan Ratheisky遭遇慢車事故,獲得第五。Sobue在昨晚熬夜重裝了自己的車架,他對自己的IF14在週五自由練習中的表現感到不滿意。將基礎設定調整成他自己主場的較軟版本,也是Sawada目前正在使用的設定,Sobue說車架現在具有了較好的平衡,不像星期五時那麼難跑。

The 3rd stop of the 2018/19 OneTen Series presented by Infinity kicked off with Rd5 getting underway in dry but cool conditions at Feiteng Raceway in Guangzhou, China. It was current championship leader Akio Sobue from Japan that topped the opening round of qualifying. The Infinity driver, as has been the norm this season, headed home his team mate Jin Sawada by 3 seconds. Next up was Chinese national champion and Guangzhou local Gary Huang in 3rd followed by 13 year old Haoran Ma just 2 seconds back, while Jan Ratheisky, who had an incident in traffic completing the top 5. Sobue had rebuilt his car overnight, not happy with the balance of his IF14 following Friday’s free practice. Reverting to a softer variation of his home track setup, which was being used by Sawada, he said the car was now better balanced, having been very loose on Friday.

Sawada使用Akio自家主場的基礎設定下地,僅僅調整了Droop和車高,目前看來車況頗佳,儘管Akio的主場是一個室內瀝青高抓賽道。對自己首輪的成績感到滿意,兩位Infinity車手都反饋說賽道的抓地穩定,而且沒有遇到任何慢車的阻擾。

Sawada had come to China with Akio’s home track setup and with adjustments made to the car’s droop and ride height it seemed to work well despite Akio’s home track being high traction indoor asphalt. Feeling he had a solid first run, both Infinity drivers reported that the track’s traction was stable and neither had reported any issues with traffic in the run.

黃揆笙在主場領銜一眾Xray車手,佔據本輪第三至第六名。這位現任全國冠軍認為自己本輪表現正常,但如果設定有所改善,成績一定可以快很多。現在整台車過於穩定,缺少轉向,而且圈速衰減問題很明顯。黃揆笙將與自己的機械師郭耀威一起找到解決方案。

Gary Huang would lead home a group of Xray cars, which covered 3rd to 6th. The reigning national champion reporting his run as normal but believed that it can be definitely faster with a lot more to come in the setup. Currently the car is too stable and lacks steering and also during the run the car’s performance drops quite considerably. Gary was in discussions with pitman Gavin Kowk to find solutions to help make it turn in.

尚未在國際車壇嶄露頭角的馬浩然在第一輪預賽中表現上佳,僅落後他威名素著的隊友約1秒完賽。在自己的主場,這位13歲小將對自己的車架感到滿意,不準備在第二輪開始前做任何設定調整,只希望能夠更加專注於操控。Jan Ratheisky排名第五,他在比賽末段與慢車糾纏了一下,損失2秒鐘,排名亦跌落兩位。勞敏皓獲得本輪比賽第六。

A new name to most, Haoran Ma, put in an impressive run in Q1 to end up only 1 second behind his more well known team mate. This being his local track, the 13 year old reported the car as feeling ok and had no plans to make any changes to setup, instead preferring to focus on his driving for Q2. Jan Ratheisky took Q5, an altercation in traffic near the end of his run losing him 2 seconds and 2 places. Lao Minhao completed the top 6.

在Scorpion Stock組別中,所有車手都使用Scorpion公發馬達參賽,冠軍候選人Jan Ratheisky再度獨領風騷,領先駕駛Awesomatix的第二名車手Ali Lee 6秒完賽。第三名是本地車手劉家榮,香港站的亞軍Mugen車手Yan Cheung落後一秒,獲得第四。

In the Scorpion stock class, which uses identical 13.5T motors from Scorpion, it was Champion elect Jan Ratheisky who once again showed he is the class of the field by taking the opening qualifier with his Xray by 6 seconds ahead of Ali Lee driving an Awesomatix. In 3rd place it was local driver Jiarong Liu a second further back with Mugen driver Yan Cheung, who was runner up in the class in Hong Kong completing the top 4, another second back.

賽道聚焦 | Track Focus – 飛騰賽車場 Feiteng Raceway

賽事 | Name – 2018/19 OneTen Series Rd5 & 6
承辦方 | Host – 飛騰賽車場 Feiteng Raceway
地點 | Location – 廣州 | Guangzhou
行駛方向 | Direction – 順時針 | Clockwise
路面 | Surface – 瀝青 | Asphalt

由Infinity冠名的OneTen系列賽來到首個賽季的第三個比賽場地——坐落於廣州市區附近的飛騰賽車場——進行第五與第六站的比賽。坐落於一個鬱鬱蔥蔥河道環繞的小島之上,飛騰賽車場始建於2006年,在過去多次舉辦過全國青少年錦標賽。這個賽車場以青少年遙控模型培訓而聞名,是全國各級教育及模型運動機構認證的模型運動基地。飛騰的創始人林銘華先生同時也是IYRCA(世界青少年遙控模型協會)世界錦標賽的組織者。在平路場地的一側是飛騰教育的辦公室,另有一個模型店和越野場地。

目前領跑Modified組別積分榜的Akio Sobue表示他很喜歡這個高速的賽道路線,雖然目前場地抓地力不高但賽道非常平整,使用28度的Sweep公發輪胎下地,操控樂趣十足。問及賽道上的難點,這位Infinity車手認為賽道左側的四連彎會給車手造成麻煩,因為通過這個區域時抓地力有變化。

The OneTen Series presented by Infinity makes its 3rd stop in Gunagzhou for rounds 5 & 6 of the championship at Feiteng Raceway close to the centre of the sprawling metropolis. Set in a wooded area on a small island surrounded by river, the track was built in 2006 and on numerous occasions in the past has hosted the Chinese Youth Nationals. But what the track is best known for is being a licensed training facility and hosting school children who are taught at the main schools in the region. Headed by Carson Lin, who also organises the IYRCA junior World Championships each year, the facility also sports a number of rc related offices as well as a shop and an offroad track.

Talking with Modified class series points leader Akio Sobue regarding the track, he said he likes the high speed layout, and while the traction is not so high, the smooth surface and 28 shore handout Sweep tires make it quite enjoyable. Asked to point out a difficult section of the track, the Infinity driver replied that the long 4-apex left hander on the left side of the track can cause issues due to the changes in traction level going through the section.

Sobue與Rathiesky收穫四連勝 | Sobue & Rathiesky complete the double double

Akio Sobue統治了在今天下午於TRC進行的Sweep Modified組別決賽。沒有受到任何真正的挑戰,這位日本車手順利拉開了與後車的距離並建立起了可觀的領先優勢直至順利完賽。在他身後,Nicholas Lee完成了堪稱孤獨的8分鐘決賽,拿下亞軍。Jin Sawada和從第八位躥升上來的Jan Ratheisky激烈爭奪第四名的位置。這張戰鬥很快演變為爭奪第三名,因為Andy Moore在直路上發生嚴重失誤,撞上了賽道圍欄;不過Andy僅下跌了2名,最終以第五名的成績帶回。Jin成功抵御住了德國人,站上領獎台上的最後一個位置;Jan獲得本場第四。

Akio Sobue put in a dominant performance in what was mostly a precessional race in the Sweep Modified class at TRC this afternoon. Never really challenged, the Japanese driver was able to pull clear of the chasing pack early on and build up a substantial lead by the end. Behind, Nicholas Lee had what can be described a lonely race in 2nd. While Jin Sawada and a very fast starting Jan Ratheisky, starting in 8th, had a good battle for 4th. That battle would become for 3rd as just ahead Andy Moore had a big moment coming onto the main straight and stuffed it into the wall on the main straight but somehow only lost 2 positions and was able to bring it home in 5th. Jin could stay in front of the German to take the final step on the podium with Jan finishing in 4th.

Sobue在賽後說,他在前兩分鐘全力以赴,拉開了與二車的距離;當他確認自己的領先優勢已經穩固之後就開始放鬆著跑了。他在賽前曾擔心車子在5分鐘後變得很甩,然而實際上車架在整個比賽過程中都保持了不錯的平衡性。他提到比賽時很重要的一點是不要去踩路肩,因為這很容易導致翻車;他一直採用保守的跑法,並順利斬獲本賽季的第四個冠軍。

Sobue said after, that he pushed hard in the first 2 minutes to build a gap and when he was sure his position was secure he started drive easier. He said that before the race he thought that after 5 minutes the car would become loose but it didn’t and actually maintained its balance throughout the entire race. Mentioning that it was important not to touch the kerbs as it was easy to flip over he drove conservatively and brought it home to take his 4th win and second clean sweep of the season.

Yokomo車手Lee說:「我想要接近Akio」;然而賽前改變的設定並沒有帶來他預期中的好效果。作為18/19賽季的首站比賽,他對自己在香港的穩健開局感到滿意,在昨天收穫一個第三名之後,今天他更進一步,拿下第二。

Yokomo driver Lee said ‘I wanted to be closer to Akio’ however a setup change made prior to the final hadn’t worked out and so he was not as fast as expected. His first entry for the 2018/19 season, having missed the first two rounds due to personal reasons, he was content with his solid start to the championship, leaving Hong Kong with a 3rd from yesterday to go with today’s 2nd place.

Jin Sawada在決賽中的表現非常穩定,他一邊對前方的隊友Andy Moore施加壓力,同時又要抵御來自Jan Ratheisky的進攻,最終獲得第三名。Jin在賽後依然對自己的車不滿意,並又跑了一排電進行測試;一如既往,他終於找到了一整個週末都在思考的解決方案。

Jin Sawada put in a solid performance as he pressured his team mate Andy Moore ahead of him while resisting pressure by Jan Ratheisky from behind to take home 3rd. Jan was still not happy with his car following the race and so decided to run an extra pack and, as is common, finally found a solution to the problem he was having all weekend.

Scorpion Stock組別的決賽與Modified組的決賽截然相反,桿位選手Jan Ratheisky與第二位發車的Yan Cheung全程纏鬥在一起,兩位車手的差距從未超過一秒鐘。在多次交替領先之後,兩人還發生了一次較嚴重的碰撞,當時排名第三的Derek Yuen也被捲入其中;最終Jan稍稍拉開了一些距離,率先衝線。Mugen車手Yan Cheung獲得第二名,Angus Leung獲得第四站比賽的第三。

In the Scorpion Stock class, it was the opposite of the modified final, with pole man Jan Ratheisky and 2nd placed starter Yan Cheung putting on an exhibition for almost the entire race, with the pair separated by fractions of a second throughout. Featuring multiple passes, as well as a one time major get together which involved the 3rd place starter Derek Yuen, in the end Jan was able to just pull clear and take the win, the German however still visibly down on power.  Mugen driver Cheung took 2nd, while Angus Leung complete the Round 4 series podium.
