Wang Hai Feng wins Spec R Cup

The Spec R Cup was run recently but due to a sudden rain storm, the race had to be relocated to RCI, an asphalt indoor track, at the last minute. It was both a surprise and a challenge to all drivers as they had to set up their cars to avoid traction rolling. Because of this T.O.P. driver Wang Hai Feng gave up his target of getting TQ and instead moved onto a different strategy. He used the qualifying runs to try to setup his car to avoid traction rolling. In his final round of qualifying he almost got his car as fast as the TQ driver Ding Fang Jie.

In the first final, Wang succeeded to pass Ding and got the first place. In the second final, the traction of the track increased a lot making it difficult to drive, but Wang managed to get to the first place quickly however he later got into an accident and was bumped by a slower car, causing the body shell to tuck so he ended up in fourth place at the end.

In the third final, traction became even higher.  Wang tried to pass the first car, but unfortunately the two cars bumped against each other.  Wang then temporarily gave up the first position.  At the same time the third car was following very closely, so Wang played safe by also giving up the second position.  After few laps, he managed to get back to the second position. Into the last minute of the race, Wang tried to pass the first car, but unfortunately he was bumped by a car that came from a different section of the track by accident.  He fell back to the second position and finished the race.

At the end, Zhu and Wang were tied for the first position but Wang won the race after taking lap time into account, followed by Zhu then Zhang.
