As in every round so far, 4WD Modified Buggy saw the most participants and this time was no different. Competition was fierce with reigning champion Bashir (Team Associated) battling against Shahrin (Xray) and Kent (Tekno) for the the win this round, however Bashir maintained his composure and grabbed the win in all the mains. Shahrin came in 2nd and Kent was 3rd.
In 2WD Modified Buggy, Bashir repeated his dominating performance again to snatch wins in all mains. But it was no walk in the park as he faced fierce racing by Shahrin and Syafiq. After the triple A-mains, it was Bashir (Team Associated) in 1st from Shahrin (Xray) in 2nd and Syafiq (Xray) in 3rd.
In the Short Course Truck class, Boy Hazlyne (TLR) snatched the 1st place with Hakeem (Intech) in 2nd and first timer to the series, Rudy finishing in 3rd place.
