Sobue adds Japanese 1:12 National title

Having won the All Japan 1:10 Touring Car National title earlier this month for Axon, ISTC World Championship podium finisher Akio Sobue has just added the National 1:12 title to his tally.  Racing for Team Bomber at the Radio Controlled Heaven track in  Nagoya City over the weekend, Sobue would secure the overall TQ from the similar TB-AK12 of Takashi Kato having topped three of the four rounds of qualifying, Kato topping Q4.  In the triple 8-minute finals, Sobue won the opening encounter by 3-seconds from former 1:12 World Finalist Hideo Kitazawa.  A2 would see another win this time over Kato to secure the overall title.  Winning A3, Kitazawa would finish 2nd overall with Kato completing the podium.
