Ahn Hyun Ho takes 2012 Korean GP title
Serpent driver Ahn Hyun Ho took the 2012 Korean national championship title that was held at the Hitec circuit. He suffered a terrible qualifying and had to bump up to the main final in sizzling hot weather conditions. Coming from fifth and with three laps into the final, he gained the lead but had to refuel more often compared to his competitors due to a higher fuel consumption of his engine. After the final pit stops and with four and a half minutes to go he was still in the lead but he had to refuel again due to a runtime of only four minutes and 15 seconds. He decided to take the risk and reduced the speed in order to spare a slash and dash pit stop but he flamed out with just 10 seconds to go. He crossed the line in second place but the racer winner was excluded because of his car’s body shell being too low handing the race win to Ahn Hyun Ho.
