Speed King Tour Rd4 – Report

Round 4 of this year’s Speed King Tour was held at the Crest Speedway indoor carpet track. A new track layout built in the week prior to the event meant the locals had less of an advantage and the organisers also decided to enforce a control tyre rule with the new Rush carpet tyre being chosen for the event. In the premier Touring Modified class it was Yokomo driver and local hero, Yugo Nagashima with the TQ from Crest Speedway shop assistant Hayato Ishioka (Kyosho) and Infinity driver Akio Sobue in 3rd. Right from the start of the 7-minute A-main event, Yugo was chased by Hayato with the top 2 being a class of their own. Hayato tried to catch up on Yugo but a mishap of Ishioka gave Nagashima room to breathe. In the end Yugo would maintain the gap to bring home the win from Hayato in 2nd while privateer Toyoki Yamada completed the top 3 result. Elsewhere in the Touring Stock class it was Kazuki Yamashita with the win. The Speed King Tour now has a small summer break with the next round being held at the Twin Ring Honguu outdoor track on September 24th.
