HPI reports – “With the typical Bay Area fog clearing, we had some great weather for round 2 of the HD-Alpha1 point series. The location this time was the outdoor asphalt parking lot next to Hobbytown USA Fremont, as the change in surface added a new challenge to all of the drivers. The Hyper organization had another strong showing, as drivers from Tengu, Drift Sector, Wickedways, Limited Traction, and Kyokuro Project came out to compete. Unlike round 2, the track difficulty was increased and was narrower than round 1, testing everyone’s choku-dori skills (feint drift) and reflexes. After several rounds of fierce competition, it came down to the final battle between Rob and Ariel. In the end, Ariel was able to keep his cool through Rob’s intense pressure and walk away with the round 2 win.
Round 2 Final Results –
1st Place: Ariel – Limited Traction
2nd Place: Rob – Team Tengu
3rd Place: Eric – Team Tengu”
