Colin Tong wins at Singapore’s Urban Touring Series Rd8


Round 8 of Singapore’s Urban Touring Series was held this past weekend at Singapore’s Urban Onroad Raceway. XRAY’s Colin Tong gave his rivals notice of his intentions when he TQed all 3 rounds of qualifying to start the finals in the coveted pole position. Yokomo driver Chee Lip Keong qualified 2nd while XRAY driver Hasron Robana started in 3rd.

In the first leg of the A-Main, a turn 1 incident unfortunately dropped Hasron to the back of the field, with Colin and Lip Keong immediately putting a gap on the rest of the field. Benefitting the most was Smith Kek who moved to 3rd despite a 6th position start. Colin held on to his quick start to take the win by 4secs over Lip Keong in 2nd. Smith held on to 3rd. Before the 2nd-leg of the A-main could be started, the skies that had been threatening rain throughout finally opened up. A steady drizzle throughout the rest of the day meant that the race had to be called, with the final results based on the single leg run.

The B-Main managed to complete 2-legs, with XRAY’s Charles Lim taking the overall win.
