Last weekend, the third round of The Serpent GT Cup one-make series race in Hong Kong was held in TRC race track again. As the popularity grows, our Serpent China Distributor ERC had no choice but to place 15 persons on each of the 6 heats for the one day event. With the Cobra RTR-chassis group ( stock cars Cobra GP RTR with Serpent-Novarossi pullstart engine) ) being the most popular with 4 heats, the open class where drivers are only limit to use our very successful Cobra GT chassis are gaining momentum by having two complete group of 30 persons. The weather was perfect, and the competition level was fierce.
With a full house of attendance, the racing schedule was very tight and we are glad to report it’s been running smoothly for the one day event. As some of the drivers are no longer satisfy with the speed our RTR chassis provide, some of them just couldn’t resist the temptation on running at the open class. When the curtain finally falls, Siu Ming once again came out on top on the Cobra RTR classes. Philip Leung came second and veteran Lam Wai Man taking a popular third for the class. TQ holders Jason Choi could not convert his form from the qualifiers and will miss out the podium this time round.
For the open class, the audience witnessed some of the fastest GT’s on the TRC track and lap record are being push every time. TQ holder Chiu Sin On proved he is the man to beat and come out swinging after the 45minutes A final and taken the vital championship points. Hung Cheung Hung, an A-main finalist at the 2012 IFMAR 1/10 Nitro Touring car championship came out from his retirement and fought for a well deserved 2nd place. Hui Chin Ho rounded up the podium in third.
The next round of the Serpent Cobra GT series race will be held on the 28th of August.
