Nicholas Lee wins Race the Roof Friday

The Race the Roof Friday 2WD Buggy Bash race was held last Friday at the Urban PlaySpace rooftop outdoor track high above the city of Singapore and it was late entry, Nicholas Lee, who took the win. Running the rocket round qualifying format, Esmail Apandi secured the TQ by some two seconds over Nicholas Lee. Jody Long qualified 3rd, while Dominic Quek took the last direct A-main spot in 4th. In the finals, Fazly Ibrahim and Andrew Tow bumped-up from the B-Main to make the 6-car A-main. In A1, Jody Long came through from P3 to take the win ahead of Nicholas and Esmail. In A2, Esmail secured a convincing win ahead of Nicholas, with Jody in 3rd. This set the stage for an exciting A3. Pole-sitter Esmail had to fend of hard-charging Dominic for the lead in the early part of the race, with Nicholas close behind in 3rd. In a well executed pass, Dominic took over the lead from Esmail who then lost 2nd to Nicholas with a mistake later on. Just when it looked like there would be a 3rd different winner in the A-main, an unfortunately marshalling incident saw a flipped car placed in the path of leader, Dominic. This allowed Nicholas to go through and eventually seal the win. Esmail finished in 2nd while Jody came through for 3rd. Dominic Quek, Fazly Ibrahim and Andrew Tow completed the A-main results.
