勢不可擋,Infinity車隊再度包攬前兩名

由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽第二站在一個緊湊的比賽日後順利收官。受到持續降雨的影響,本站比賽的賽程被迫縮短為一天,而濕滑的場地也大大提升了比賽的難度。Infinity雙雄再一次證明他們的組合堅不可摧,成功地包攬了Infinity Modified組的冠亞軍。但與第一站比賽恰好相反,Naoto Matsukura提前一輪獲得本站冠軍,Akio Sobue則緊隨其後,憑借最後一輪決賽的勝利,拿下亞軍。暫列Arrowmax華人電房Modified組積分榜首位的Nicholas Lee在第三輪決賽中屈居第二,僅為自己爭取到了領獎台上的最後一個席位;他的同胞Dominic Quek獲得本站比賽的第四名。與Quek同屬Xray車隊的JJ Wang獲得第五,另一位Xray小將勞敏晧名列第六。香港Xpress車手陳秋文在決賽中愈戰愈勇,最後一輪決賽拿下第五,排名本站第七。來自馬來西亞的Micheal Lo和他的Awesomatix隊友張方洲分獲本站第八和第九。

After a busy race day at the 2nd round of the CETC presented by Infinity, which due to rain saw the event shortened from a 2 day event to a single day event, the race was eventually able to come to a successful conclusion. Once again the Infinity duo proved to be a formidable team, successfully taking 1st and 2nd positions in the Infinity Modified class. With places switched between the team mates from the opening round at AMA, Akio Sobue was able to secure the runner up spot thanks to winning the final A-main. Points leader in the Arrowmax Chinese Modified ranking, Nicholas Lee could only take 2nd in the last final, giving him the final step of the podium. Fellow country man Dominic Quek would end the race in fourth place in front of Xray team mate JJ Wang who took fifth.

「這一輪,車子狀態很好」,Akio Sobue如是評價道。發車後始終緊跟Nicholas Lee的Infinity王牌在一分鐘後找到機會,成功完成超車。之後的比賽可謂一帆風順,日本高手最終以巡航狀態衝過終點線,幫助車隊包攬本站比賽前兩名。

‘For this round the car was really good’, said Akio Sobue. Following Nicholas Lee closely from the start, the Infinity ace found his way passed at the 1 minute mark and once in front the Japanese driver went into cruise mode, helping his team secure the top two spots on the podium.

Yokomo廠車手Nicholas Lee對獲得季軍並不完全滿意,他表示本站比賽的難度非常高,「場地從濕變乾,不斷變化,越來越抓」,車架的設定必須想辦法時刻與場地條件契合,這對車手來說「極具挑戰」。上週末剛剛在美國參加完高強度的Reedy Race,緊接著就來到廈門三圈,新加坡車手的身體略感不適,相信這也對他的發揮產生了一定的影響。

Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee was not fully satisfied with his 3rd place, saying ‘the track is changing from wet to dry and the grip level constantly changed’ the setting of the car needing to be constantly tweaked for the changing conditions. This situation is ‘really challenging’ for the drivers. Having attending the Reedy Race in the US last week, Lee came straight to Xiamen from California and as a result wasn’t feeling too well and this also affected his focus.

在Sunpadow Stock組別中,最後一輪決賽顯得格外精彩。本站比賽的TQ Yan Cheung和上一站比賽的冠軍丁房傑在前兩輪比賽中各取一分;在決定性的第三輪決賽中,兩人亦不負眾望,展開了備受期待的終極對決。發車後,Yan Cheung一路領先;而從第五位發車的丁房傑則一度跌落至第八位,但迅速調整好狀態的Awesomatix車手依靠出色的操控技巧奮起直追,在比賽還剩1分半左右時終於追到了香港高手。在最後三圈,兩位選手上演了火藥味十足的短兵相接。丁房傑在首次試圖超越Yan Cheung時撞到前車,被迫停車等待。一圈之後,杭州高手在操控台前短直路上的「門對門」對抗中佔據上風,完成超越;但僅僅領先不到三個彎道,Yan Cheung就捲土重來,試圖在賽道右下角超車。但這一次Cheung撞到了前方的丁房傑,導致Awesomatix車手的車殼卡住掉頭。香港車手試圖停車等待丁房傑,但並沒有留出足夠的時間讓丁房傑回到領先位置。賽後,Yan Chueng受到賽會罰時,另一位香港車手Ali Lee因此獲得了第三輪決賽的勝利。最終丁房傑獲得第三輪比賽的第二名,並以積分優勢蟬聯Stock組分站賽冠軍;Yan Cheung屈居第二,贏得第三輪決賽的Ali Lee獲得本站季軍。

In the Sunpadow Stock class, the final A-main was very entertaining. TQ Yan Cheung and CETC Rd1 winner Ding Fang Jie took a win a piece in the first two A-mains and with the 3rd round setting up to be a showdown it did not disappoint. Right from the start Yan Cheung was leading the race while starting from 5th Ding fell to 8th. Quickly regrouping the Awesomatix driver started picking off those ahead of him and with only a minute and a half remaining he finally reached the Hong Kong driver in the lead. In the last 3 laps the two drivers had an intense battle with Ding trying to pass Yan the first time, but making contact he was forced to wait. One lap later the driver from Hangzhou had a door to door battle on the pit straight and worked his way passed but only 3 corners later Yan made a move resulting in contact causing a body tuck for the Awesomatix driver. While Cheung stopped to wait he didn’t wait for Ding to re pass and was subsequently given a penalty which gave another Hong Kong driver Ali Lee the win in this round. Ding Fang Jie took 2nd in A3 with this result giving him the overall win with Yan Cheung having to settle for 2nd with Ali Lee 3rd.
