受降雨影響,CETC香港站TQ提前決出

從今天早晨一直延綿到中午時分的數場短時陣雨讓CETC賽會不得不決定取消原定在今天上午舉行的最後兩輪預賽。由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽香港站各組別TQ因此提前決出。按照預賽積分二取一的計算規則,日本車手Akio Sobue成為Infinity Modified組別的TQ,與其同分的Yokomo廠車手Nihcolas Lee因為較慢的完賽成績而屈居第二。另一位Infinity廠車手Naoto Matsukura將排在第三位發車,其後是Serpent廠車手Stick King。Awesomatix車手張方洲、Xray小將勞敏皓、Xpress車手賴燦熙、Serpent車手Felix Law和ARC車手Patrick Chau分獲預賽第五至第九名。Fai Ho以一分的優勢擊敗他的香港同胞Jackie Shum,成為成功殺入A組的最後一人。在Sunpadow Stock組別中,Yan Cheung以0.066秒的優勢奪得TQ,James Pong屈居第二。Stick King毫無懸念地拿下Serpent Formula組別的TQ,老對手Penny Yip名列第二,Max Ma獲得第三。

With rain falling from morning until just after midday, the organisers of the CETC presented by Infinity were forced to cancel the final 2 scheduled rounds of qualifying, meaning the final starting positions were to be based on the two qualifying rounds run yesterday. Based on the rules, counting 1 round from 2, Japanese Infinity driver Akio Sobue was declared the top qualifier for the Infinity Modified class. Despite having the same points, factory Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee would have to settle for 2nd due to having a slower time. The second factory Infinity of former World Champion Naoto Matsukura will start from 3rd place, just in front Serpent driver Stick King. Awesomatix driver Rocket Zhang, Xray youngster Lau Ming Hao, Xpress driver Hay, Serpent driver Felix Law and ARC driver Patrick Chau covered 5th to 9th places, with Fai Ho beating his fellow Hong Kong driver Jackie Shum to take the last main final spot. In the Sunpadow Stock class, Yan Cheung would take the TQ by just 0.066 seconds in front of James Pong. Stick King comprehensively took the Serpent Formula class TQ, with his arch rival Penny Yip grabbing second with fellow Roche driver Max Ma starting from 3rd.

Sobue扳回一城,TQ誰屬明日見分曉

Akio Sobue在由Infinity冠名的CETC聯賽香港站第二輪預賽中成功扳回一城,他的隊友Naoto Matsukura亦緊隨其後,幫助Infinity車隊包攬本輪前兩名。第二輪預賽時更低的氣溫讓賽道速度變快,兩位日本高手雙雙衝進22圈,而險勝首輪預賽的Yokomo廠車手Nicolas Lee則在本輪遭遇厄運。他的車架在比賽前段競爭力不足,被迫於第四圈讓位給Matsukura;在第六圈遇到慢車時,Matsukura順利通過,Lee卻被急於駛回行車線的慢車阻擋併發生碰撞。一度跌落至第七名的新加坡高手沒有放棄,一路拼殺,最終以第三名的成績收車。對於這個結果,Lee感到遺憾,但他也表示「我用的是舊胎」,所以第三名「已經不錯了」。Serpent廠車手Stick King在本輪有上佳表現,僅落後Nicholas Lee 0.8秒衝線,收穫第四名。Sunpadow Stock組別的第二輪預賽由James 「Bond」 Pong勝出,首輪預賽的贏家Yan Cheung落後0.8秒完賽,屈居第二。Serpent Formula組別依舊被Serpent廠車手Stick King統治,Penny Yip和Max Ma分獲本輪二、三名。

Akio Sobue has successfully hit back in the 2nd round of qualifying at the CETC presented by Infinity, his team mate Naoto Matsukura also backed him up helping Infinity take a 1-2 for this round. The temperature in Q2 was lower making the track faster and both Japanese drivers took full advantage of the conditions to make 22 laps, but factory Yokomo driver Nicholas Lee, who took Q1 by a small margin, had tough luck in Q2. Lee’s car’s lack of pace at the beginning of the race meant he had to give away track position to Matsukura on the 4th lap, and on the 6th lap when they hit traffic Matsukura got through but Lee was hit by the slower car who was in a rush to get back onto his racing line. Falling back to 7th position the Singaporean didn’t give up and fought his way back to finish in 3rd place. Lee was feeling unlucky for this round but at the same time he also said ‘I am using old tires’, so 3rd place ‘is actually not bad’. Serpent factory driver Stick King had a good run, 0.8 seconds behind Nicholas Lee to take 4th for the round. In the Sunpadow Stock class James ‘Bond’ Pong took Q2, while Q1 winner Yan Cheung was 0.8 seconds behind and had to settle for 2nd. In the Serpent Formula class, Serpent factory driver Stick King is still dominating proceedings, with Penny Yip and Max Ma taking 2nd and 3rd for the round.
