Bowie Ginting doubles at Nissan Cup

Bowie Ginting doubles at Nissan Cup

The first annual Nissan Cup was held at the Bandung Progresif track with a total of 116 entries for the 2-day event. In the premier Open Brushless class Bowie Ginting took the TQ from Muhammad Izzah who finished his best round within 1 second of Bowie’s time. Suwardi Suliandy rounded out the top 3 result. The Touring 13.5T non boost class again had Bowie coming out fastest after the qualifiers with Phoa Pinghong on the 2 spot and Muhammad Izzah in 3rd.

In the opening Open Brushless A-main Bowie took an easy win as Izzah, Suwardi and Christian got in a battle behind. Izzah was raising his pace in leg 2, while Bowie’s car seemed to be a bit nervous. Both Bowie and Muhammad were never separated more than a second until Izzah made a mistake four laps to the end which allowed Bowie to take the win by 1.9 seconds. Despite having already taken the overall win Bowie then also attended in leg 3 but a steering servo failure ended his chase on Muhammad who finished the finals on the runner-up spot. Behind the two Suwardi Suliandy completed the top 3 result.

In the 13.5T non boost class Bowie had to start dead last due to calling a repair time during the qualifiers. He quite easily went trough the field but it wasn’t enough to catch on Muhammad who scored the win in A1. A2 then saw Bowie taking the win with a 6 seconds margin from Izzah meaning the third and final leg would bring the decision. Due to an oversteering car Bowie wasn’t able to push as hard as he wanted  to challenge Izzah but transponder issues of the leader meant the race win and with it the second title of the weekend for Bowie.
