The 1/8 buggy season in Korea kicked off last weekend at Banwol Park Raceway and about 70 drivers from all over the country joined the race. The temperature was still around freezing point but the competition was hot. A total of 3 JQ drivers, DJ Park, Sun-Young Hwang and Ryan Lee, made to the A-Main final and fought for that first spot. Sun-Young Hwang, who chose to drive THECar for 2012 showed great performance in the qualifying rounds, but a big crash from behind at the start of final caused him broken throttle linkage. 20 minutes into the final, it was all about DJ Park, Jae-Kyun Kim and Ryan Lee. They were constantly swapping positions, but it was DJ Park who took the charge and took the win for JQ with JaeGyun Kim driving a Kyosho in 2nd and Ryan Lee with another JQ in 3rd.
