Keisuke Fukuda wins Japanese 10th Nats

Keisuke Fukuda wins Japanese 10th Nats

The Japanese 1/10th scale 200mm Nationals took place last weekend at the Hokusei circuit track in the centre of the country. Practice was hampered by rain with drivers getting very little running prior to the start of qualifying, which was held in dry conditions. It was Kyosho racer Takaaki Shimo that took the TQ spot ahead of former World Champion Keisuke Fukuda in 2nd, Yuya Sahashi in 3rd and Shinnosuke Yokoyama 4th. The 40 minute Open class final saw a very close battle at the front between the top 2 qualifiers and it was Fukuda who eventually came out on top for Mugen, taking the win and finishing less than 2 seconds up on Shimo who finished 2nd, while Xray driver Hiroki Fujita took 3rd.
