Having taken the first three rounds of qualifying at RCI V2 in Shanghai, Xray factory driver JJ Wang nearly lost out on getting the perfect score from taking all 4 rounds. Initially dropping behind Awesomatix factory driver Rocket Zhang, JJ was able to regain the lead on the third lap, but then dropped back to third on the 11th lap when he lost 1.5 seconds stuck behind Motor King. However with his faster pace, and being on his home track, the Chinese American worked his way back passed Rocket Zhang and Yokomo factory driver Nicholas Lee, and was once again able to top the timing screens on lap 18, maintaining the position until the end. Leading the pack for more then a minute when the race approached its halfway point, Yokomo driver Lee would once again have to settle for 2nd. Former Chinese National Champion Rocket Zhang again took a 3rd place for the round, and with the same score as Xray young gun and CETC “Rising Star” Lao Min Hao, but having the faster round time, Rocket will start the final from 3rd place on the grid. Although finishing behind an improving Motor King for the round, Serpent factory driver Felix Law will start from 5th place in the final, just ahead of the Yokomo driver. Next up was a gaggle of Xray drivers consisting of Julian Wong, Mihnea Lupu and Toshihiko Hara, with the last spot in the Modified A-main going to the RC America driver Michael Lee.
While the Modified class TQ had been wrapped up early, the Sunpadow Stock class on the other hand was still open, with two local Shanghai drivers locked in a tight battle. Destiny driver AI Luo led the first half of the race, but Xray driver John Lu would eventually catch and pass him on the 14th lap. With only 0.8s between the two after 5 minutes of racing, John would eventually take the last round and with it the TQ honour. With his result from the first and third round, Yokomo driver Heng would end up starting the final from 3rd place, with another Xray youngster Nicholas Koh set to start from 4th on the grid. For the Serpent Formula class, the last round proved to be a dramatic end for the lead drivers. With Teamsaxo racer Jimmy Qian and RCI V2 track manager Bobby Zhang both broken down while leading the race, it was veteran Ben Lai driving a Xray who took the round, which demoted RCI V2 owner Rick Wang to 4th place on the starting grid.
