Takayuki Kohno wins 2014 Speed King Tour Rd5

After the cancellation of the 4th round due to heavy rain the 5th round of 2014 Speed King Tour took place at high speed outdoor track of the Green Park Speedway in the Saitama prefecture. The track is quite new and designed for 1/8th nitro cars and it also suits modern modified electric touring cars well, with speed of over 100km/h reached on the straight. After three qualifying rounds 2013 “Speed King” Yugo Nagashima took TQ with his Yokomo BD7 2014. Current series leader Akio Sobue (TRF) was second and another TRF driver, Takayuki Kohno became 3rd qualifier.

The finals took place under flood light because of a rain interruption. In the A-main, Yugo led but Takayuki tried to overtake Yugo and he eventually became the race leader. Takayuki then kept his position until the 5 minutes mark and ultimately won the race with his TRF418. The next round of the series will take place at the Rajiten Nagoya indoor tarmac track on the 14th of September.
