Nicholas勝出第三輪決賽,CETC上海站順利收官

由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽第一賽季第三站在上海RCI V2賽車場順利收官,提前奪冠的JJ Wang在最後一輪決賽中選擇作壁上觀,Yokomo廠車手Nicholas Lee以較大優勢勝出,鎖定Modified組別亞軍。新加坡高手對自己使用Hobbywing動力的Yokomo BD8極為滿意,「我在決賽中找到了合適的設定,車架極具競爭力」,他繼續說道,「很可惜我慢了一拍,在這個賽道失去TQ也就意味著輸了比賽」。Nicholas的Yokomo隊友王海峰同樣也在最後一輪發揮出了世界冠軍車架的實力,從第六位發車後一路追趕至新加坡王牌身後完賽,但這一成績依舊未能讓他染指領獎台上的最後一個位置。雖然在第三輪決賽中發揮不佳,但Serpent廠車手Felix Law依舊憑借前兩輪決賽的積分站上季軍領獎台。在遺憾錯失領獎台的Yokomo本地王牌之後,Awesomatix廠車手張方洲獲得本站比賽第五名。而在第三輪決賽前4分鐘始終位居第二名的Xray新人王勞敏晧則在比賽的最後一分鐘痛失好局,第20圈與第21圈時兩次在賽道左下角的圓弧彎處犯錯,被王海峰借機超越,最後以0.2秒之差告負。最終這位CETC揭幕戰的「明日之星」拿下上海站比賽的第六名。

The third round of the 2017 CETC presented by Infinity at RCI V2 in Shanghai has come to an end. Winning the first two rounds and wrapping up the win early, JJ Wang chose to sit out the last final. Yokomo factory driver Nicholas Lee would take full advantage of the clear track ahead of him to win the last leg with a sizeable gap, which in turn secured his second place overall. The Singaporean was very happy with the performance of his Hobbywing powered Yokomo BD8, saying ‘For the finals I’ve got the set-up right, the chassis is really competitive’, ‘it’s a shame that it has come too late, and losing out on the TQ position means losing the race’. His Yokomo team mate Motor King also enjoyed a strong showing in the last final, demonstrating the capabilities of the WC winning chassis by starting from 6th position to eventually finish 2nd behind Nicholas, this result however not enough to claim the last step on the podium. Although having a lack lustre performance in the final leg, Serpent factory driver Felix Law would net himself the final step of the podium thanks to his performance in the 1st and 2nd finals. Behind Motor King, Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang would take 5th place overall. Having been sitting comfortably in 2nd place for more than 4 minutes, Xray driver Lao Min Hao would once again suffer an unfortunate mistake to fall behind Motor King a result that would give him 6th place in the Shanghai round of the CETC.

在Sunpadow Stock組別的巔峰之戰中,Xray車手盧俊樵穩住陣腳,將桿位發車的優勢轉化為一場酣暢淋灕的勝利,問鼎冠軍。Destiny車手駱永晟則有失水準,被Xray小將Nicholas Koh超越,落後0.5秒衝線。不過這並不影響駱永晟站上亞軍領獎台,而Nicholas也順利登上領獎台上的最後一個位置。憑借在Stock組別的出色發揮,來自馬來西亞的這位Xray小車手也被評選為本站比賽的CETC「明日之星」。在Serpent Formula組別中,提前奪冠的錢敏同樣選擇在場邊觀戰,來自香港的車手伯約不負眾望,勝出最後一輪,並因而鎖定Formula組別亞軍獎杯,RCI V2車場經理、Xray車手張維康獲得季軍。下一站,也是本賽季最後一場CETC分站賽將於9月23日至24日在香港Twin賽車場舉行,目前各組別的年度總冠軍花落誰家尚無定論,香港站必然會精彩紛呈。

For the Sunpadow Stock class, Xray Driver John Lu would lead the race from tone to tone, successfully claiming his first CETC round win. Destiny driver AI Luo was overtaken by Xray youngster Nicholas Koh in the latter half of the race and had to settle for 3rd for the round. For his exceptional performance in the Stock class, the youngster from Malaysia was presented the Protoform / Sunpadow CETC “Rising Star” award for the Shanghai round. For the Serpent Formula class, winner of the first two rounds, Jimmy Qian would also sit out the 3rd round, Ryan Lam from Hong Kong would seize the opportunity and take the leg and with it claim 2nd place for the Shanghai round. The popular RCI V2 track manager, Xray driver Bobby Zhang would complete the podium. With Rd3 now over the season finale of the 2017 CETC presented by Infinity will be hosted by Hong Kong Twin RC Speedway on the 23rd to 24th of September this year, and with all three championship titles still up for grabs, the final round is building up to be an exciting event.

勢不可擋,JJ Wang提前鎖定CETC上海站冠軍

Xray廠電車手JJ Wang依靠穩健的發揮再下一城,頗為順利地提前拿下由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽上海站Modified組冠軍。在自己的絕對主場RCI V2,美籍華人王牌在五分鐘的比賽中穩穩地保持住了相對於Yokomo車手Nicholas Lee約0.9秒的領先優勢,提前衝線奪冠。而在頗為「平靜」的第二輪決賽中,Awesomatix車手張方洲也順利維持了自己的排名,無驚無險地拿下本輪第三。唯一髮生失誤的車手是Xray小將勞敏晧,他在第五圈犯錯後排名跌落至第八,並始終未能恢復,最終以第八名完成這一輪。而預賽排名第五至第八的車手則都因此而順次上升一位,Serpent車手Felix Law、Yokomo車手王海峰、Xray車手Julian Wong與Mihnea Lupu分獲本輪第四至第七名。

Xray Factory driver JJ Wang took the win in the 2nd A-main, to secure the overall win of the 3rd round of the CETC presented by Infinity with one final in hand. On his home track, RCI V2, the Chinese American maintained a 0.9 second lead over Nicholas Lee to convert his pole position into the win here in Shanghai. In what was a relatively uneventful A2 in comparison to the opening leg, Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang could maintain his 3rd place starting position with ease with the only driver to make a big mistake being Xray youngster Lao Ming Hao, who following the incident on the 5th lap, fell back to 8th and was not able to recover.

Xray車手JJ Wang非常高興能在自家的場地拿下一場極具統治性的勝利。「我這一輪策略有些失誤」,JJ解釋說自己的輪胎處理讓他的Xray T4 2017在起步階段沒有足夠的競爭力,但他依然對自己有足夠的自信,「場地很小,超車很難,我只需要守住線路」。華人王牌完美執行了自己的策略,凱旋而歸,提前問鼎上海站冠軍。

JJ Wang was thrilled to have been able to win in such dominant fashion. ‘I still have the wrong strategy for this leg’, JJ explaining that his tire treatment makes his Xray T4 uncompetitive at the beginning of the final but he was still confident saying ‘the track is small and so its very hard to pass meaning all I have to do is defend my line’. The top Chinese driver, who executed the perfect race weekend, is now able to celebrate his win a round early.

「車子非常好」,Nicholas說,「我終於有了和JJ一樣的圈速」,Yokomo廠車手在這一輪首次在單圈成績上超過了JJ。對於下一輪,新加坡選手不準備改變任何設定,在JJ決定作壁上觀後,他將很有可能拿下一場勝利。

‘My car is very good’, Nicholas Lee said, continuing ‘I finally had the same pace as JJ’, A2  the first time the Yokomo driver had a faster lap time than JJ the whole weekend. For the final leg the Singaporean has no plans to change his car and with JJ sitting out the final run, Nicholas feels he has a good chance to take the victory.

「勞敏晧和王海峰撞車,這給了我喘息的空間」,Awesomatix車手在第五圈的這個事故之後松了一口氣,順利保持住了第三的排名,直至完賽。對於下一輪,他準備繼續保持設定不變,並繼續使用他開賽以來一直在使用的唯一一套Sweep Racing公發輪胎。

‘Lao Min Hao came together which gave me some breathing room’, said the Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang, relieved after the 5th lap incident meant he was able to maintain his 3rd position and finish his race without pressure from behind. For the next round he will not change anything on his car and will continue to use his only set of Sweep handout tires.

「正常的一輪」,在激動人心的第一輪決賽後,Serpent廠車手認為第二輪決賽中一切回歸到了正常的狀態。Felix Law在起步後與王海峰發生碰撞,一度排名跌至第六,但僅僅三圈後他就返回第四名。不過在這之後他未能縮小與張方洲之間的差距,不得不接受以第四名的成績衝線。

‘A normal round’, after the excitement of A1, Serpent team driver Felix Law felt that everything went back to normal in the 2nd leg. A coming together with Motor King at the start saw him fall back to 6th position, but 3 laps later he was able to recover back to 4th but was not able to close the gap between himself and Rocket and so would have to settle for that position in this round.

Xray車手盧俊樵在Sunpadow Stock組別的第二輪決賽中扳回一城,讓自己與Destiny車手駱永晟再次站在了同一起跑線上。兩位上海Stock高手將在第三輪決賽中一決高下。在第二輪決賽中,Yokomo車手陸怡衡僅以0.14秒的優勢險勝馬來西亞小將Nicolas Koh,為自己爭取到了寶貴的3分。在使用ORCA CETC公發馬達及限定齒比的規則之下,Stock組別的競爭異常激烈,第二至第八名均同圈完賽,總差距不足4秒。在Serpent Formula組別中,Teamsaxo車手錢敏梅開二度,勝出第二輪決賽,提前奪冠。

Xray driver John Lu ‘hit back’ in Leg 2 of the Sunpadow Stock class A-main, putting him on the same points as Destiny driver and A1 winner AI Luo, the two Shanghai drivers set to battle it out in the deciding 3rd final. Yokomo driver Heng took 3rd place with only 0.34 seconds separating him and the Malaysian youngster Nicholas Koh to claim a very valuable 3 points. Using the ORCA controlled motor and a fixed gear ratio, the Stock class was extremely competitive with 2nd to 8th place all covered by 4 seconds at the end. In the Serpent Formula class Team Saxo driver Jimmy Qian again took the win to warp up the overall title.
