“Our National 2nd series was held this time at Bukit Sentul RC Camp owned by Teddy Syach, former 2004 Brazil 200mm GP IFMAR finalist. The track is located in a mountaineous area at West Java, approximately 50 minutes drive by car from Jakarta. The weather during the race was hot and dry.Track’s surface is fine and smooth, hard-to-find bumpy areas around it, while the layout is a combination of long straight ending with an uphill, high-speed corner, chicanes and tight S-turns which are very challenging. During practice in the morning, the traction was very good and it slowly built up through the heats and finals. The battle started with Teddy Syach followed by myself leading the pack. Teddy is very fast, and pulled out about 5 seconds ahead of me, but on the last lap his battery began to dump. I managed to push hard in last minute, and finished in 1st place only 0.6 seconds ahead of Teddy. Teddy’s best lap was 19.4 compared to my best lap of 19.5 sec.” Read More… [Source – teamxray.com]
