2024 Speed King Tour Rd2 – Report

After a successful opening round of the Speed King Tour 2024 at the Super RC Omiya indoor tarmac track, the popular and competitive electric touring car series sponsored by Rakusai Model moved outdoors for Round 2 at TM Circuit Wakayama in Wakayama prefecture.  Now in its 11th year, this race series travels to circuits across Japan to compete for the series championship through six rounds.  For the first time in the event’s history, the number of entries reached 100, Atsushi Hara among the line-up, and many racers came to the track a day early.  Considering the weather forecast that the next day would be rainy, the organisers decided to hold one round of qualifying for the top category TC0 (Modified) class on Saturday afternoon.  Unfortunately, it rained on the day of the event, and the decision was made to cancel the race.  The TC0 class standings were determined based on the previous day’s qualifying results.  The winner was Tamiya driver Ryoma Yoshida, a local junior high school driver, with Takara Sano also driving a Tamiya in second with the Infinity of Ryosuke Yamamoto completing the podium.  The next round, Round 3, will be held on 14th of July at the new Next Rush Circuit in Chiba prefecture.
