Jin Sawada takes Speed King Tour Rd1

After a one year break, the Kazuki Endo produced Speed King Tour re-started at RC Stadium Sodegarura’s outdoor tarmac track in Chiba prefecture last weekend. With the 2020 series cancelled due to Covid-19, the organisers ran the event with measures in place. Unfortunately the weather forecast said that it would be raining from noon on race day so the first qualifying session started early in the morning. After finishing Modified class Q2, the rain started to come down and it was enough to cancel the other races and so the results were based on qualifying. In the modified class, Infinity/Rush driver Jin Sawada made the fastest laps and time in Q2 and his younger brother Shin Sawada took TQ in Q1. Jin’s result was faster than Shin’s so Jin took the opening round of the 2021 Speed King Tour with Rush driver Hayato Ishioka taking third. Kazuma Murai took the win in the Stock class with the best time from Q2, while in the new Super Stock class that uses G-force ESC & motor and Super RC (Radicon) original battery pack with the race motor lent by the organiser, KO Propo’s Yuichi Anahara took the victory using the new KO EX-NEXT. Next round of Speed King Tour will be take place at TM circuit Wakayama outdoor tarmac track in Wakayama prefecture on the 23rd of May.
