Yeung & Law successful at Sunpadow Strait Cup

Yeung & Law successful at Sunpadow Strait Cup

After the successful China National Championship race in 2015, the Xiamen ARC International Raceway hosted the Sunpadow Strait Cup last weekend, attracting around 200 entries to race in the two classes of 1/8th EP Buggy and 1/8th GP Buggy. Racers from Hong Kong, Macau, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and Mainland China attended the race with the ARC International Raceway being located inside an industrial park, offering a size of 70×40 metres and a true world-class facility to host high-level races. In the 1/8th E-Buggy class 13-years old Jonathan Yeung from Hong Kong would take the TQ but due to bad weather the finals would be cancelled, handing Jonathan the win based on the qualifying results. Sam Chen from Taiwan would take the runner-up spot while Taiwan’s Ngai would end the 2-day event in third.

In the Nitro Buggy class Felix Law from Hong Kong would take the TQ but in the A-main it was Jonathan Yeung, coming from the 3 spot on the grid, who took the early lead as Felix flipped his car in the opening lap. Some 25 minutes into the race Jonathan had extended his lead to almost a whole lap but a broken throttle servo robbed him the chance to take the overall win. This promoted Felix Law into the lead and he would bring home the win while behind him the battle was on between Wu Wei Ping from China and Chinese-American JJ Wang, who drove his first 1/8th Nitro Buggy race. In the end Wu Wei Ping would be able to take the runner-up spot while JJ had to settle for third.
