Heng wins at Shanghai Muchmore Touring Series Rd2

Round 2 of the Shanghai Muchmore Touring Series was held at the indoor carpet track of the RCI V2 track. In the Electric Touring class Heng would grab a solid TQ from Nicholas and Robert in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Huahua and Jason Wang came in 4th and 5th with the top 4 being separated by less than one second which promised some close racing in the finals. The opening A-main then saw the top 2 cars pulling away quickly and in the end TQ holder Heng would take the win about a second in front of Nicholas while Tommy Dai would be further back in 3rd, some ten seconds down. At the start of the second main Nicholas had some problems and he had to let Lu by in the second corner. Lu would stay in 2nd place for about six laps until Nicholas found a way past. Unfortunately both made contact which promoted Tommy Dai into 2nd place. Both Lu and Nicholas would chase Dai for about eleven laps until the latter made a mistake which allowed the two chasing drivers through. Up front Heng would bring home the win from Lu in 2nd and Nicholas 3rd.

With the overall win locked by Heng the race for the remaining podium spots was on in A3. Nicholas, Lu, Tommy Dai, Jason Wang and Huahua were all in the mix with Lu passing Nicholas in the opening stages thanks to a fantastic move. Nicholas would challenge Lu for four laps before regaining the 2nd position. Heng made a rare mistake on lap eleven, letting Nicholas pass. Heng attacked Nicholas for the remaining 15 laps but Nicholas made no mistake to take the win 0.452 seconds ahead of Heng while Lu finished 3rd 2.644 seconds behind Nicholas. With the fantastic drive in A3-Main, Nicholas (Xray) took 2nd overall in front of Lu (Yokomo) and behind Heng (Yokomo).
