JJ Wang先下一城,Nicholas Lee屈居第二

由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽上海站剛剛完成首輪預賽,主場作戰的Xray廠電車手JJ Wang延續自己的良好狀態,先下一城。Yokomo廠車手Nicholas Lee也找到了自己的節奏,拿下本輪第二。控制練習排名第三的Awesomatix車手張方洲則以0.38秒之差屈居Xray小將勞敏晧之後,獲得第四名。Serpent廠車手Felix Law將自己的練習賽排名提升一位,其後是兩位Xray車手Julian Wong和Mihnea Lupu。控制練習第二的Yokomo車手王海峰本輪發揮失常,僅列第八名。

The opening round of qualifying for the 3rd round of the CETC presented by Infinity in Shanghai, saw Xray driver JJ Wang continue his good form from practice to take the top spot in the Modified class. Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee finally found the pace he was lacking earlier in the day to take 2nd overall, while Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang lost out to young Xray driver Lao Ming Hao by 0.38 seconds and had to settle for 4th. Serpent team driver Felix Law improved on his practice performance by one spot, with Xray drivers Julian Wong and Mihnea Lupu completing the top 7. Second place after controlled practice Motor King was not able to carry over that speed to qualifying and ended up in 8th.

「還OK」,斬獲頭名的Xray高手對自己的表現並不完全滿意,「還是犯了一些小錯」。JJ Wang說自己在第八圈時失誤偏離了行車線,讓輪胎沾上了一些灰塵,損失了少許時間,最終以0.238秒之差未能衝進27圈。對於下一輪,JJ的機械師Hara Tune認為車架的狀況頗為不錯,五分鐘的持續性很好,因此無需做任何調整。輪胎方面,Xray廠電車手考慮繼續使用他在控制練習第二輪時就啓用的那一套。

‘Its OK’ was JJ Wang’s reaction and although he got first the Xray driver was not satisfied with his own performance, saying ‘I made some minor mistakes’ having gone off line in one of the corners and getting dust on this tires which cost him some time meaning he was not able to get 27 laps by just 0.238 seconds. For the next round JJ’s mechanic Hara Tune thinks that with the car setup ok and with good consistency in 5 minutes there is no need to make any setup changes. In terms of tires the Xray driver plans to continue to use the same set of tires that he began using in CP2.

「明顯比控制練習時有改善」,拿下本輪第二的新加坡王牌補充道,「但我還需要更多轉向」。在這一輪開始前,Nicholas Lee抓緊時間更換了全新的碳纖底盤,這讓Yokomo廠車手終於獲得了自己想要的過彎速度。針對第二輪預賽,除了調整設定來讓車架更轉,「我還需要仔細檢查車架」,因為「之前換底盤的時間很緊」。

‘Much better than controlled practice’ said Nicholas Lee, the relieved Singaporean taking 2nd for the round continued ‘I still need more steering’. Prior to Q1 Lee rushed to change to a brand new carbon chassis which helped give the Yokomo driver the corner speed he needed. For Q2 apart from changing the setup to get more steering he said, ‘I need to check the chassis carefully’ as ‘the time I had to change the chassis was very tight’.

將自己的表現評價為「穩定發揮」,全國青少年冠軍勞敏晧感覺自己的成績還有可能更好,因為「我給JJ讓車之後一度失去了節奏」。對於下一輪,Xray小將依舊準備「安全完賽」,為自己再爭取一個不錯的排名,然後他有可能考慮在明天嘗試一些設定上的調整。

Describing his performance as ‘safe’, Junior National Champion Lao Ming Hao felt he could have gotten a better result had he not lost his rhythm having ‘given way to JJ’. For the next round the young Xray driver plans to put in another ‘safe run’ to secure his place in the A-main and if that works out will only then try a different setting in the remaining qualifiers.

「車架表現正常」,Awesomatix廠車手說,「讓Nicholas過了以後,我遇到王海峰,被壓住了幾圈」。不準備更換設定和輪胎,張方洲感覺自己的車架設定需要更高的賽道抓地力相配合,「可能下一輪我的表現會更好」。

‘Car was ok’, said Awesomatix team driver Rocket Zhang continuing, ‘after I gave way to Nicholas Lee I was stuck behind Motor King for a few laps’. Not planning to change either his setup or tires, Rocket feels his overall setting will need higher traction and so ‘maybe my performance will be better next round’.

「抓地下降」,Felix頗為遺憾地說道,「我的‘歡樂時光’過去了」。針對下一輪,Serpent廠車手認為自己需要想辦法找到更加平衡的車架設定,而他使用的測試品原型車殼則給他增加了找到合適設定的難度。另外,他還準備調整自己的Arrowmax原型電調設定以配合車架設定的改變。

‘The traction is getting lower’, Felix regretfully saying, ‘my happy hour is over’. For the next round the Serpent driver thinks he needs to find a more balanced setting but the prototype body he is using makes it more difficult to find a suitable setup. For Q2 Law also plans to change his Arrowmax ESC setting to adapt to the change in chassis setup.

同樣感到賽道抓地力不足的美國Xray高手認為自己的問題更多地來自於「操控不好」。對於車架的表現感到可以接受,Julian Wong期待自己在下一輪會有更好的發揮。在Sunpadow Stock組別中,Xray車手盧俊樵成功將頭號種子排名轉化為一場勝利,Destiny車手駱永晟屈居第二。在Serpent Formula組別中,Teamsaxo廠車手錢敏发挥稳健,力壓Xray車手張維康,拿下頭名。

Also feeling there is not enough traction American Xray driver Julian Wong thinks his problem is more a case of ‘bad driving’. Satisfied with the car’s performance he hopes he will have a better run next time. In the Sunpadow Stock class Xray driver John Lu successfully transferred his practice pace to the qualifiers taking the top spot in Q1 with Destiny driver AI Luo having to settle for 2nd place. While in the Serpent Formula class, Team Saxo driver Jimmy Qian took the win through good consistency while behind was Xray driver Bobby Zhang ended up 2nd.

JJ Wang輕取CETC上海站頭號種子

由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽第一賽季第三站於今天上午在上海RCI V2室內賽車場正式拉開序幕。兩輪控制練習過後,剛剛回到自己絕對主場的Xray廠電車手JJ Wang頗為輕鬆地拿下Infinity Modified組頭號種子,最快連續三圈成績為34.196秒。落後JJ 0.56秒,Yokomo車手王海峰憑借第二輪控制練習的成績將自己的排名大幅提升4位,力壓同樣在第二輪將排名提升一位的Awesomatix廠車手張方洲。王海峰的隊友、暫居Arrowmax華人榜首位的Nicholas Lee位列控制練習第四,其後是在第二輪控制練習最後一圈絕殺Felix的全國青少年冠軍勞敏晧。在被擠到第六名的Serpent廠車手Felix Law之後的是美國Xray車手Julian Wong和本地Xray小車手Nicholas Koh。

The 3rd round of the first season of the CETC presented by Infinity got underway at RCI V2 in Shanghai today. After 2 rounds of controlled practice it was Xray factory driver JJ Wang, running at his home track, who topped both seeding rounds to come out on top in the Infinity Modified class with a best 3 consecutive laps of 34.196 seconds. Only 0.56 seconds behind was Yokomo driver Motor King who improved his result through a much better 2nd round, improving from 6th place after round 1, and just in front of Awesomatix driver, and new father, Rocket Zhang. Motor King’s team mate and current leader of the Arrowmax Chinese Modified standings Nicholas Lee will be seeded 4th, with Chinese Junior National Champion Lao Ming Hao taking 5th by overtaking Felix Law on the last lap of his run, the Serpent factory driver having to settle for 6th. Behind him was American Xray driver Julian Wong who was seeded 7th just ahead of young Shanghai based Malaysian Nicholas Koh.

對自己使用LRP動力的Xray T4的現有狀態頗為滿意的JJ Wang在兩輪控制練習中並沒有調整任何設定。兩輪比賽都使用新胎下地的Xray廠電車手對於即將開始的首輪預賽的計劃是「不要犯錯」,而在設定方面,他依然不準備做任何調整。

Satisfied with the current set-up of his LRP powered Xray T4, JJ Wang did not adjust the car throughout the two rounds of practice having found a good setup in testing earlier in the week. Using new tires on both occasions the Xray driver’s plan for the first qualifier is to make ‘no mistake’ and in terms of setup it will remain the same.

在第二輪控制練習中換用正常長度的前擺臂後,全國冠軍王海峰顯著提升了自己的成績,因為車架的「轉向有所提升」。對於第一輪預賽,Yokomo車手打算進一步調整設定,爭取「讓尾部更安定」。

Using normal length front suspension arms in the 2nd controlled practice, former National Champion Motor King improved his result dramatically with the car now having ‘much better steering’. For the first round of qualifying the Yokomo driver will again work on his setup to try and give the car ‘a more stable rear end’.

「後輪不夠抓」,Awesomatix廠車手對於車架的狀況並不完全滿意,「很難爭取更好地成績,車架無法承受更激進的操控」。不過在第二輪將雙立柱轉向系統換為滑軌式轉向後,張方洲感覺車架的轉向反應更快了,對於成績提升有所幫助。在即將到來的預賽中,全國冠軍認為自己需要改進操控,更好地適應車架的特性。

‘The rear end is quite loose’, said Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang, who was not fully satisfied with the setup on his A800X, feeling ‘its hard to get a better result because the chassis can’t handle a more aggressive style of driving’. In the 2nd round of CP the local racer changed the steering system from a dual barrel crank system to a slider system, after which Rocket felt the car had much faster steering response and this in turn helped him to improve his result. For the opening qualifier the former National Champion believes he now needs to focus on adapting his driving style to the new setting.

「感覺一般般」,Yokomo廠車手對自己的表現如是評價道。在兩輪控制練習間小幅調整了設定,但新加坡王牌認為「改變不大」,車架目前最大的問題是「不夠轉」。在首輪預賽前,Nicholas Lee考慮換用王海峰的設定,力爭更好的成績。

Yokomo team driver Nicholas Lee declared his round as ‘so so’, continuing by saying ‘I adjusted the car’s setup between both rounds of Controlled Practice’ but felt there was no ‘big difference’, the biggest problem of the chassis being there is ‘not enough steering’. Before the first qualifier the Singaporean ace plans to use Motor King’s setup to try and improve on his current position.

CETC「明日之星」勞敏晧在控制練習第二輪的最後30秒才將自己的排名一舉提升到第五名,「兩套公發胎的差異比較大」,Xray小車手解釋道,「第二套輪胎越跑越快,而第一套輪胎在前幾圈就能做出最快成績」。對於即將開始的預賽,全國青少年冠軍準備選用第一輪控制練習時使用的輪胎,而車架設定不做任何調整。

CETC Rd1 Rising Star Lao Ming Hao managed to grab 5th in the last 30 seconds of CP2, saying ’the two sets of controlled tires have a pretty big difference’ the young Xray driver explaining ‘the second set of controlled tire was getting faster and faster but the first set was better at the beginning of the run’. For qualifying the Junior National Champion plans to choose the tire he used in CP1 and keep the car’s setting unchanged.

在Sunpadow Stock組別中,上海本地Xray高手盧俊樵連下兩城,拿下頭號種子。盧俊樵的機械師是CETC前兩輪的Stock組冠軍丁房傑,認為自己的車況無可挑剔的Xray車手在預賽中的計劃是「進一步提升自己的操控」。Destiny車手駱永晟同樣圈速驚人,僅以0.032秒之差屈居第二,其後是Xray小車手Nicholas Koh。而在Serpent Formula組別中,Teamsaxo廠車手錢敏獨領風騷,其後是RCI V2車場經理張維康和RCI V2的老闆Rick Wang。

In the Sunpadow stock class, local Shanghai Xray driver John Lu took both rounds of controlled practice to top seeding, John Lu’s mechanic being the winner of the first two rounds of the series, Ding Fangjie. Feeling his car is perfect his plan for qualifying is to ‘improve my driving’. Destiny driver AI Luo had the same fastest lap time as Lu, missing out on the top spot by 0.032 seconds, and he is followed by young Xray driver Nicholas Koh. In the Serpent Formula class, Team Saxo driver Jimmy Qian was in a class of his own while behind him was RCI V2 manager Bobby Zhang just ahead of RCI V2 track owner Rick Wang.
