Sobue & Ratheisky extend OneTen winning streaks

Akio Sobue has maintained his perfect record at the 2018/19 OneTen Series presented by Infinity having taken the win in the 8-minute A-main here in Guangzhou. Having already wrapped up the title with the win in round 5 yesterday, the Japanese driver led a mostly processional race as racers drove with battery conservation in mind. In the end, the top 4 finished in the positions they started with Sawada crossing the line in 2nd, while Nicholas Lee and Jan Ratheisky, who had a good battle early on, completed the top 4 with Haoran Ma in 5th. The talk before the race was trying to finish the 8 minutes on this high speed track and Sobue said he drove the race very smoothly, having pushed hard in the first few laps to build a gap. He was able to maintain his lead and in the end had a lot of power left in his 6300mAh cells. Despite having taken the title, the Infinity driver said he will for sure be in Hong Kong for the final two rounds saying he is aiming for a perfect score in the series.
