Sawada & Kiyoyi to start from pole at RCI V2

Jin Sawada will start the opening round of the OneTen series presented by Infinity from pole position having taken all rounds of qualifying this afternoon at RCI V2 in Shanghai. The Infinity driver secured his first pole position in the series at the end of the Q2 where he went faster than his Q1 time by a second, while Rocket Zhang and Gary Huang swapped places to end up 2nd and 3rd, repeating that result again in Q3 and ensuring thats how they will start the final. Commenting on his qualifying the Japanese driver said he was happy to make his first TQ after 9 attempts in the series. Commenting on his car he mentioned that he removed 30 grams to bring the car down to the minimum weight of 1320 grams, which he said improved the reactions of the car.
