Singapore’s Urban Touring Series finale report

152

The 2017 season of Singapore’s Urban Touring Series concluded this past weekend when the finale round was staged at the Urban Onroad Raceway. Championship points leader, XRAY’s Dominic Quek, returned to action, and he would be challenged by a larger turnout for the highly anticipated final round of the year-long 10-round series.

While many were anticipating Dominic to dominate the event, the results of controlled practice indicated the possibility of an upset. Running a new set of tyres, Dominic struggled to put in 3 fast laps, losing out the top seed position to XRAY team-mate, Hasron Robana, who was faster by two-tenths over 3 laps.  When qualifying started however, Dominic showed that he had resolved his early troubles by sweeping Q1 and Q2 by a lap each over his competitors to wrap up an early TQ. Qualifying 2nd was Hasron, with Schumacher Joe Hwee in 3rd.

In the finals, there was to be no stopping Dominic as he took victories in each leg of the A-Main by a 1-lap margin the rest of the field. With the leader running away, the excitement came from the battles between Hasron and Joe, with Hasron coming out 2nd eventually. Joe would settle for 3rd spot on the podium.
