In Leg 1 of stock touring, Bowie held his position while Chandra and Teddy took Suwardi’s 2nd position. Chandra took the 2nd place in the 1st minute when Teddy and Suwardi made contact. Chandra pushed Bowie hardly and kept the gap at 2 seconds until he rode a curb and rolled his Xray letting Bowie extend the gap and Teddy take back the 2nd place. Bowie won leg 1 followed by Teddy 1 lap behind and Chandra in 3rd. Suddenly the rain began to fall causing the race to be delayed. The race continued 2 hours later on damp track conditions pushing all drivers to show who is the real “Rainmaster”. Bowie got into front followed by Teddy. A nice duel between them until the 2nd minute when Bowie made a mistake on the straight and hit the barrier pulling the battery out of the car. Teddy lead the race followed by Rama 10 seconds back. Teddy really proved his world finalist skill on the wet track and came through for the 2nd leg win, 1 lap ahead of Rama and Ronny. The 3rd leg, which was run under lights would be a duel between Bowie and Teddy for the overall win. Still on wet conditions, Bowie held his lead while Suwardi chased him followed by Ronny who made an excellent start taking Teddy’s 3rd place. Suwardi rolled his car letting Ronny and Teddy take over the duel for 2nd place. At the end, Bowie won the leg and also took the victory on his debut with the Serpent S411 debut followed by Ronny, 11 seconds back and Teddy in 3rd place.
