Alex Hagberg wins at Asian ORCA Cup final
The final race of the Asian ORCA Cup series was held in the small village of Kota Raja, just outside Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. The race saw some 100 entries split on two classes: 13.5T turbo timing and 17.5T blinky classes. In the 13.5T class it was Alexander Hagberg who was considered as the pre-event favorite. The best Malaysian drivers, Azri Amri, and Jacky Siow were also both very fast on this track with their extensive track knowledge and stock class experience. As traction was very low, also in combination with the hard Ride R36 controlled tire, car set-up was very difficult. The difference between new and old tires was also very big, as always on asphalt. Using a clever tyre strategy, only three sets of tyre were allowed, Alex Hagberg won all five qualifying rounds and used his TQ position and two sets of new tyres to win the first and second A final. The second place went to Jacky Siow with Wong Kok Wai, who was able to win the third final, taking the remaining spot on the podium.
