This past weekend saw China’s premier 1/10th 200mm gas race, the Good Fortune Cup, take place and for the 15th anniversary of the event there was a big turn out, with drivers from Hong Kong, Macau and China taking part. After 2 days of qualifiers, it was Samuel Chiu from Hong Kong using the Xray NT1 and MAX engine that took the TQ spot from fast local driver Irvine Fong with a Novarossi powered NT1 taking 2nd. Unfortunately for Samuel, he couldn’t take the start having stripped his front belt in the warm up. At the 6th minute Chris Lee took over at the front, racing his new Capricorn powered NT1 and once up front he was able to extend his lead to nearly 3 laps, but a splash for fuel in the closing minutes resulted in a stop and go penalty and so the margin was only 1 lap at the end.
Thanks to Chris Lee for the report.
