Colin Tong takes maiden Urban Touring Series win

Round 8 of Singapore’s Urban Touring Series was held this past weekend at the city’s Urban Onroad Raceway. Colin Tong (Xray) gave his rivals notice of his intentions when he TQ’d all three rounds of qualifying to start the finals in the coveted pole position. Chee Lip Keong (Yokomo) qualified 2nd while Hasron Robana (Xray) started in 3rd. In the first leg of the A-main, a turn 1 incident unfortunately dropped Hasron to the back of the field, with Colin and Lip Keong immediately putting a gap on the rest of the field. Benefitting the most was Smith Kek (Xray) who moved to 3rd despite a 6th position start. Colin held on to his quick start to take the win by four seconds over Lip Keong in 2nd. Smith held on to 3rd. Before the second leg of the A-main could be started, the skies, that had been threatening rain throughout, finally opened up. A steady drizzle throughout the rest of the day meant that the race had to be called, with the final results based on the single leg run, handing Colin a maiden win at the UTS.

Final results:
1. Colin Tong – Xray
2. Chee Lip Keong – Yokomo
3. Smith Kek – Xray
4. HJ Quek – Xray
5. Sean Lee – Tamiya
6. Sebastian Lee – Tamiya
7. Hasron Robana – Xray
8. Terence Ang – HB Racing
