Sobue與Ratheisky勝出OneTen A組決賽第一輪 / OneTen A-main Leg 1 wins for Sobue & Ratheisky

在RCI V2進行的首輪A組決賽中,Akio一如所料輕鬆勝出,Jin Sawada與Jan Ratheisky緊隨其後;A組完賽順序與發車順序幾乎一致,僅有張方洲超越Nicholas Koh拿下第五名。Akio在4分鐘內沒有受到任何挑戰,他僅有的擔心來自於在緊窄的賽道上超越慢車。

It was business as usual in the opening leg of modified A-mains at RCI V2 this afternoon for Akio Sobue as he took an easy win ahead of Jin Sawada and Jan Ratheisky, with the front of the field maintaining their grid order throughout the 4 minute final. Breaking away early the Infinity driver was never challenged at the front, his only concern coming while working his way through traffic on this tight track.

In the Scorpion Stock class Jan Ratheisky was again the class of the field as he won by over 7 seconds from Japanese driver Masaaki Kyoyi with the biggest mover of the race Huang Ziyun coming from 9th on the grid to finish 3rd.

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.

Sobue勝出OneTen預賽第一輪 / OneTen Qualifying Rd1 goes to Sobue

由Infinity冠名的OneTen華人電房系列賽首輪預賽剛剛結束,日本車手Akio Sobue在6分鐘的預賽中位列第一。這位Infinity車手領先同胞及隊友Jin Sawada約5秒完賽,Sobue也是唯一一位在RCI V2高技巧性的小賽道中做出35圈的車手。德國Xray廠車手Jan Ratheisky領先新近簽約Xray的隊友黃揆笙獲得本輪第三名,另一位Xray車手Nicholas Koh拿下第五。
The opening round of qualifying for the Sweep Modified class at the OneTen series presented by Infinity has been completed, the 6 minute run being topped by Japanese driver Akio Sobue. The Infinity driver headed compatriot and team mate Jin Sawada by some 5 seconds with Sobue the only driver to get 35 laps around the technical but short lap at RCI V2. German Xray driver Jan Ratheisky would claim 3rd in front of team mate and newly signed Xray factory driver Gary Huang, with another Xray, that of young Nicholas Koh claiming 5th.

Sobue對車架在今天的表現非常滿意。今天的預賽按照三取二的方式決定排名,對於自己在6分鐘預賽中的表現,日本選手沒有任何不滿而且不準備在下一輪預賽前調整設定。
Sobue was very happy with his car in the opening run of the day, two from the 3 rounds of qualifying counting towards a driver’s starting position in this afternoon’s triple mains. Commenting on the 6 minute run he reported no issues and plans no changes for the next round.

全日本冠軍Jin Sawada認為自己的車架有些問題,儘管他照抄了Akio的設定,但車架的表現不盡人意。在前4分鐘,車子幾乎是漂移過彎;但隨著比賽的進行,情況逐漸有所改善。隊友Akio將幫Jin組裝一套避震以期在第二輪預賽中改善這一狀況。
Japanese National Champion Sawada reported having trouble with his car and despite copying Akio’s setup he felt it was not as good. For the first 4 minutes the car was sliding in the corners but as the race went on the car became better. Team mate Akio will now make his shocks for the 2nd qualifier in the hope of eliminating the issues.

現任ETS Stock及Formula冠軍Jan Ratheisky首次使用Xray T4 2019參賽,他在昨天才剛剛裝好這台車。為了在緊窄的賽道上讓車尾更加靈活,他在設定上過於激進;在第二輪預賽中,他將嘗試另一個「瘋狂」的設定方向來解決車尾太甩的問題,這也將有利於讓他進一步瞭解新車的設定。在Modified組別中僅排名第三,但在Stock組別中Jan以7秒的優勢勝出,車架設定來自於他的ETS標準室內設定,他不準備在第二輪開始前做任何調整。
Current ETS Stock and Formula Champion Jan Ratheisky is running the 2019 spec Xray T4 car for the first time, having only just completed building it yesterday. In an effort to free up the rear of the car for the tight corners he went too far with the change making it too loose in the rear and for Q2 will go a different ‘crazy’ direction with the setup to solve the issue but also to help understand the new car’s setup. While 3rd in Modified, in the Stock class, Jan took the round by 7 seconds using his standard indoor ETS setup and will leave the car unchanged for Q2.

獲得本輪第四的全國冠軍黃揆笙表示自己的Xray T4非常推頭,他使用2018版車架參加本次賽事;在這一輪中,轉向不足的車架讓他多次犯錯。問及下一輪預賽的打算,他說他的機械師郭耀威將會調整前防傾桿來改善轉向問題。
Taking 4th in Modified Chinese National Champion Gary Huang reported no steering on his Xray T4, Gary using the 2018 version of the car for this race, leading to a number of mistakes. Asked about the next qualifier he said he will have his mechanic Gavin change the front sway bar to improve the steering.

Ratheisky拿下Scorpion Stock組別首輪預賽的第一,這個組別中的所有車手都使用Scorpion 13.5T馬達參賽。常駐上海的日本車手Masaaki Kyoyi獲得本輪第二,他同樣使用Xray車架。Kyoyi表示在昨天因為颱風造成的低溫及降雨讓賽道抓地力頗佳,而今天晴朗的天氣讓氣溫回升,也造成了抓地力下降。對於第二輪,他將不會改變任何設定,但會爭取跑得更好。Simon Wang及Heng分獲首輪第三及第四。
While Ratheisky took Q1 of the Scorpion Stock class, all drivers running identical Scorpion 13.5T motors, it was Shanghai based Japanese driver Masaaki Kyoyi that took 2nd. Also driving an Xray he said that with cooler conditions yesterday due to a passing Typhoon, the grip was much higher in free practice, but with conditions much warmer today the traction has dropped. For Q2 he will not change anything but instead focus on improving his driving. Simon Wang and Heng Heng completed the top 4.

賽道聚焦 Track Focus – RCI V2 Shanghai

賽事 | Name – 2018/19 OneTen Series Rd1 & 2
承辦方 | Host – RCI V2
地點 | Location – 上海 | Shanghai
行駛方向 | Direction – 逆時針 | Counter Clockwise
路面 | Surface – 地毯 | Carpet

由Infinity冠名的OneTen華人電房系列賽在世界聞名的RCI V2賽車場正式拉開帷幕,第一輪及第二輪賽事將分別於本週六及周日舉行。5年前建成的RCI V2賽車場坐落於上海西南區域,賽道由著名的ETS地毯鋪就,使用賽道分隔欄,彎道區域還額外放置了路碟。與其他著名的亞洲賽道一樣,RCI V2在二樓設有可供租用的空調維修間,一樓處則是一個品類齊全的遙控車店鋪和公共維修間。緊鄰RCI V2賽車場的是同樣舉辦過多場國際賽事的SMP越野賽車場,在兩個車場的一側是數間遙控店鋪及模型公司。

The opening leg of the 2018/19 OneTen Series presented by Infinity kicks off at the World famous RCI V2 in Shanghai with rounds 1 and 2 of the series run across Saturday and Sunday. Built 5 years ago, RCI V2 is located south west of Shanghai and this indoor track features ETS carpet with boards and dots used for corners and track separation. As is common in Asian tracks the facility has rented air conditioned pit boxes upstairs overlooking the track as well as a fully stocked hobby shop at the entrance next to the pit room. Next door is the SMP Offroad track, which like its onroad counterpart has hosted a number of international races in the past, and joining both tracks together are buildings containing a number of RC shops and RC related offices.

逆時針行駛的賽道路線,其Modified組別單圈成績在10.5秒左右。TITC冠軍Akio Sobue表示他很喜歡這個賽道路線,但直路尾顛簸的路面讓他很難找到穩定的走線切入緊接著直路尾彎道的S彎,而且大直路行車線外側的灰塵也讓車手容易在直路尾衝過頭或者遇到推頭的情況。另外,日本王牌還提到車手們需要小心賽道護欄的問題,撞車時很容易讓車翻到另一根賽道上。

Run in an anti clockwise direction, the layout is one that has been used previously with fastest lap times in Modified in the mid 10-second range. Asked his thoughts on the track, TITC champion Akio Sobue replied that he liked the layout but that bumps at the end of the straight made it difficult to take a consistent line through the chicane which follows directly after. Combined with dust on the outside edge of the straight and it is very easy to overshoot the corner or just as easily suffer oversteer. Another point is the use of boards in the corners which the Japanese ace pointed out that if you touch them will send you bouncing across to the other side of the track.

OneTen系列赛启用一周双赛制 / OneTen Series set for double headers

由Infinity冠名的OneTen華人電房系列賽賽會正式公佈2018/19賽季的全新賽制。本賽季的比賽將於今年10月至明年3月在四個車場分別舉行,每個車場都將舉辦2輪分站賽。有別於傳統的貫穿整個週末的賽程,我們為分別在週六和周日舉行的兩輪分站賽特別引入了不同的賽制。週六的比賽將聚焦於長達6分鐘的預賽和三輪4分鐘的決賽。周日的預賽時間變短,但輪次更多;決賽則變為8分鐘的單輪決賽,同時設有晉級機制。賽會希望這樣的賽制能夠激勵賽員們在每一站比賽中採用不同的戰術,包括車架設定與操控方式等。同時,連賽兩場能夠給賽員們多一次機會爭取更好的積分。聯賽總排名選取8輪比賽中最好的5輪積分進行計算;每個週末兩輪比賽的排名相加,每個組別排名前20位的車手都會獲得獎杯。每一輪比賽限定報名人數為100名。第一輪和第二輪比賽將於10月6日-7日在上海RCI V2賽車場舉行,報名通道現已正式開啓,您可以點擊此處在線報名也可以聯繫RCI V2直接報名。

The organisers of the OneTen series presented by Infinity are delighted to announce our timetable for the 2018/19 season. With the series run at 4 different locations between October and March, each venue will play host to two rounds of the championship. Aiming to get away from the traditional race format played out over a weekend, we have introduced a new schedule that sees both the Saturday and Sunday rounds run to different formats. Saturday will see a focus on longer qualifiers of 6 minutes and short 4 minute triple finals while Sunday has shorter qualifiers, but more of them, and a single 8 minute main, incorporating bump ups. The organisers hope that this will encourage different approaches to each round in terms of setup and driving while the double header allows each racer two chances to get a good result. For the series, 5 of the 8 rounds count towards the final standings, however trophies will be presented to the top 20 in each class based on a driver’s combined result from both days. Entry for each event will be limited to 100 across both classes and is now open for round 1 at RCI V2 in Shanghai on October 6-7. You can submit your entry by clicking here or by contacting RCI V2 direct.
