Akio Sobue wins Speed King Tour East 2013 Rd3

The third round of the Kazuki Endo presented Speed King Tour East 2013 took place at the world famous Yatabe Arena in Japan. The meeting was held in Modified TC, Stock TC, JMRCA TC and Yokomo GT500 classes and it was young Yokomo driver Yugo Nagashima who won the 2nd round of the series and took TQ again in the modified TC class of round 3. TRF driver Akio Sobue captured the second spot after qualifying and Hayato Ishioka held the 3rd place with his Kyosho TF6SP. Making use of the usual ‘first corner chaos’ in the Modified A final Akio moved up to the first spot while Yugo lost a lot of positions. Yugo though recovered during the 5 minute run but was not able to catch Akio who took the winning honours with his TRF418 prototype. Yugo finished second, Kiyoto Kanno completed the podium. When it comes to the overall championship Yugo kept his top position after round 3 going into the series final that will take place at the Crest Speedway on the first weekend of November.
