Nicholas Lee & Daryl Thong win at PRCA finals

The final race of the 2015 PRCA series was held at the RCMC outdoor asphalt track in Singapore with drivers from Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and Sweden in attendance. Considered the second largest race in the country after the AOC, the event attracted international racers such as Xray’s Alexander Hagberg and Serpent’s Viktor Wilck while star announcer Scotty Ernst flew in to make for some more international flair. With the big names attending, the Modified class attracted the most drivers, making for a lot of on-track action. The Modified class qualifiers then saw a close battle between top Singapore driver Nicholas Lee (Tamiya), Alexander Hagberg (Xray) and Viktor Wilck (Serpent) with Nicholas nailing it on the TQ position with one qualifying round to spare while Alexander and Viktor lined up in second and third respectively.
