SG50 Singapore Open Race – Report

SG50 Singapore Open Race – Report

The SG50 Singapore Open Race was held in the three classes of 1/8th GT, 1/8th On-road and 1/10th On-road with a great turnout of national and international racers from Italy, Japan, UK, Thailand, and Australia. In the premier 1/8th On-road class the round 1 and 2 TQs were captured by Nelson Lee while round 3 was basically a race between Carmine Riola, Jesse Davis and Nelson Lee. All three racers were separated by only about 1 second until the final lap and unfortunately, Nelson Lee ran out of fuel and he DNF’d in the last qualifyier resulting in a start from the 7 spot on the grid. Up front Carmine started from pole position into the main and Nelson tried to work his way through the field to make up lost ground. During the second round of fuel stops, Nelson moved up to 4th position and after a mid-race stop for tyres he found himself lapping half a second per lap faster on the larger tyres. He now was in 2nd position and only one lap behind the leader Erwin Luhur. Pushing himself to the limit, Nelson Lee continued to clock fast lap times on the fresh rubber and thanks to swift refuelling, he took over the lead after the last rounds of pit stops to take the win from Erwin and Trin.
