Last weekend Kuala Lumpur saw its first race in 2017 and it was Nick Chong in the 1/8 GP class who managed to take the victory at the well attended race with his new Velox V8 ‘Simon Kurzbruch WC edition’. With only some minor setup changes to adapt the car for the high traction of the RC Malaysia race track Nick was able to secure the TQ spot. The final saw a clean start but just before the first fuelstop Nick ran out of fuel dropping him back to 5th position. With flawless driving and a well balanced car he was able to make up the lost time and took over the lead again. After the tyre change at the 30min mark he controlled the race from the first position and took the victory in front of Anthony Wee with Yee Kok Leong taking the final podium spot.
