由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽第一賽季順利收官

在香港傍晚的蒙蒙細雨中,由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽第一賽季成功收官。繼廣州、廈門和上海站之後,香港站的比賽也順利決出了各組別的冠軍,唯一的遺憾可能就是放在最後一組進行的Infinity Modified A組決賽第三輪因下雨而被迫取消。因此A組的成績改為按照積分二取一計算。Naoto Matsukura在廣州AMA首站之後,再度為Infinity車隊拿下亞軍。Awesomatix車手張方洲則依靠第二輪決賽的出色發揮成功地首次登上CETC領獎台,獲得本站季軍。Sunpadow Stock組別的決賽也格外激烈,最終Xpress車手Ian Lee笑到了最後;而在Serpent Formula組別中,Stick King儘管缺席首輪決賽,但依舊毫無懸念地拿下了後兩輪比賽,順利奪冠。

Under light rain and as darkness fell, the CETC presented by Infinity has successfully been concluded. Just as we did in Guangzhou, Xiamen and Shanghai, the Hong Kong round crowned its winners. Unfortunately the final leg of the Modified A-main had to be cancelled due to rain and so the result was based on the best points finish. Having also taken a 2nd place at the season opener at AMA, Naoto Matsukura once again sealed a 1-2 for Infinity while Shanghai driver Rocket Zhang would take his first CETC podium following a good finish in A2. In the Sunpadow Stock class the final leg was hotly contested, with Xpress driver Ian Lee coming out on top while in the Serpent Formula class, although missing the first final because of electronic problems, Stick King would take A2 and A3 to win the race.

年度總積分榜上,兩位Infinity車手包攬了Modified組別的冠亞軍;參加了CETC全部四站比賽的Yokomo廠車手Nicolas Lee獲得第三;Awesomatix車手張方洲以三分之差擊敗Serpent廠車手Felix Law,位列年度第四,這也是中國籍車手在本賽季CETC上的最高排名。CETC「明日之星」勞敏皓獲得年度第六,緊隨其後的是香港王牌Xpress車手賴燦熙。

In the season standings, the two Infinity drivers Akio Sobue and Naoto Matsukura would also take 1st and 2nd in the Modified class. Attending all four races of the inaugural season, Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee would end up 3rd. With a 3 point difference, Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang would beat Serpent driver Felix Law and he would also be the highest ranking Chinese National driver in this season’s CETC. CETC ‘Rising Star’ Lao Ming Hao would end up 6th with Xpress driver Hay from Hong Kong just behind him.

在Sunpadow Stock組別的積分榜上,Awesomatix車手丁房傑儘管缺席了在RCI車場舉辦的第三站比賽,但在其餘三站比賽中收穫兩場冠軍,力壓香港站亞軍, Xray車手 Yan Cheung,問鼎年度總冠軍。

In the Sunpadow stock class, Awesomatix driver Ding, despite missing the 3rd round at RCI but having managed to win 2 of the 3 races he attended, would take the overall title beating out Xray driver Yan Cheung who finished 2nd.

Serpent Formula組別的總冠軍屬於Stick King,而與Nicholas Lee一樣出席了全部四場比賽的Ryan Lam獲得本賽季亞軍,徐梓洋獲得季軍。

In the Serpent Formula class the title would go to Stick King, with Ryan Lam, who like Nicholas Lee attended all four rounds, taking the runner up spot. 3rd place would go to Xu Zi Yang.

在頗受關注的Arrowmax華人電房Modified組別積分榜上,Nicholas Lee已經在上海站提前一輪鎖定總冠軍;上海車手張方洲則依靠本次香港站的出色表現將個人排名一舉上升到第二名;Serpent廠車手Felix Law獲得年度第三。在各大獎項塵埃落定後,由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽第一賽季順利落下帷幕,但今年僅僅是「華人房車冠軍聯賽」的開端,明年CETC賽會將會努力為大家呈現更精彩的賽事,新的賽程表與規程將很快公佈在CETC官方網站上。

In the Arrowmax Chinese Modified standings, Nicholas Lee had already confirmed he was the Champion following the 3rd round at RCI with Shanghai based driver Rocket Zhang making a leap in the points standings, thanks to his good finish at this round, to take the runner up spot. Hong Kong driver Felix Law took the final podium spot in 3rd. With all the championship titles decided, the first season of the CETC presented by Infinity has officially come to an end and the organisers are already busy planning for next season, details of which can be found on the CETC website in the coming months.

CETC年度總冠軍——Akio Sobue

歷時六個月,先後到訪國內四家一流車場,由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽終於在香港Twin RC Speedway迎來了自己的首位年度總冠軍——Akio Sobue。這位Infinity廠車手在第二輪決賽中克服了起步階段的不利局面,後來居上,超越Yokomo廠車手Nicholas Lee,提前一輪勝出香港分站賽並進而成功問鼎CETC 2017年度總冠軍。本輪使用舊胎比賽的Naoto Matsukura並未對Sobue構成任何實質性威脅,僅領先Awesomatix車手張方洲1.3秒衝線,獲得第二。領跑比賽近3分鐘的Nicholas Lee在被Akio反超時與日本車手發生了門對門碰撞並翻車飛出賽道。返回賽道後奮起直追的新加坡王牌最終落後張方洲0.38秒完賽,僅獲第四名。兩位Serpent廠車手Stick King與Felix Law分列本輪第五與第六名,其後是另一位Awesomatix車手Fai Ho。

During the past 6 months, visiting 4 of the best racing tracks within China, the CETC presented by Infinity has crowned its first Champion with Akio Sobue taking the title at Twin RC Speedway in Hong Kong. In the second round of finals the Infinity factory driver recovered from being passed early in the race by Yokomo factory driver Nicholas Lee to take the title with one round of finals to spare. Using old tires Naoto Matsukura did not pose a threat to Sobue, and only 1.3 seconds ahead of Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang would finish in 2nd place. Leading the race for the first 3 minutes until a coming together with Sobue, Nicholas Lee would end up on his roof after the Japanese driver made a pass on him. Returning to the track the Singaporean ace could only come back to 4th place, 0.38 seconds behind Rocket Zhang. The two Serpent factory drivers Stick King and Felix Law ended the race in 5th and 6th, with Fai Ho just behind in 7th.

僅缺席了上海站比賽的Akio Sobue在本賽季的三場比賽中收穫兩場勝利與兩個TQ,另有一個第二名積分進賬,以顯著優勢捧得總冠軍獎杯。而對於第二輪決賽,Infinity高手說,「我們最終選擇使用舊胎,所以起步的時候我沒有辦法守住自己的線路」。所幸Nicholas在比賽中段踩到路碟,小小的失誤讓日本高手有機會接近對手。最終在一次門對門的較量中,Infinity廠車手奪回頭車位置並全力衝向了勝利的終點。

Only missing Rd3 in Shanghai, Akio Sobue ended the season with two wins and two TQ’s, with his lowest position a 2nd place, the Infinity driver won A2 by a clear margin. Asked about the 2nd leg, he said ‘we finally decided to use old tires, and that is the reason why I could not hold my line at the start of the race’. As the final approached the midway point Nicholas Lee went over the track dots and this little error let the Japanese driver to close the gap.  With a door to door clash the Japanese driver would reclaim his position and end the race with a win.

同樣使用舊胎的Matsukura認為自己在這一輪「非常慢」,但手握一套新胎讓這位前電房世界冠軍有信心憧憬在最後一輪獲勝。在隊友已經提前奪冠的情況下,Infinity廠車手希望能為車隊再度包攬冠亞軍。

Also using old tires this run, Naoto Matsukura felt the car was ‘very slow’, but still with a new set of tires the former Touring Car World Champion is confident he can take the last round. With his team mate claiming the championship, the Infinity driver hopes that he can help the team claim the top 2 steps of the podium once again.

「新胎」和「運氣」,Awesomatix車手張方洲如此總結自己在這一輪的表現。「比賽時的小雨讓場地變得濕滑,所以我始終都很小心」。在最後一圈,上海車手曾經犯錯打滑,被Nicholas超越;但Nicholas也未能很好地控制住自己的車架,在剛剛完成超車後就同樣打滑,被Rocket借機奪回位置並最終領先不到0.4秒衝線。

‘New tires’ and ‘Luck’, was how Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang summed up his race. ‘The sprinkles of rain during A2 made the track slippery, so I was very cautious’. On the last lap the Shanghai driver made a mistake and the car had a half spin which allowed Nicholas to get passed, but when the Yokomo driver made his own mistake straight after this allowed Rocket to get back passed and the pair would finish the race separated by just 0.4 seconds.

憑借新胎的優勢在起步時做出教科書般的強勢內線超車,Yokomo廠車手Nicholas Lee一度看上去能夠贏下第二輪。但比賽進行到3分鐘時,不小心在操控台下的彎道踩上路碟後,情況慢慢轉變,「我的車越來越推」;比賽中漸漸加大的雨勢和大風也對新加坡王牌產生了影響。連續兩輪衝擊第一名未果,在上一站提前登頂的Arrowmax華人總冠軍只能寄希望於在最後一輪展現出自己的實力。

With a clear advantage on new tires, Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee performed a text book inside pass on the first lap and looked set to win the second leg, but as the race approached 3 minutes an error just in front of the driver stand saw the situation start to change and ‘my car started to push’. As the light rain started to get heavier and with the wind picking up the Singaporean driver, and Arrowmax Chinese series champion, now has to try to take the win in the last A-main.
