Sawada completes perfect weekend at AMA

Again it wasn’t as straight forward as he would have liked but Jin Sawada has taken the win at Rd4 of the OneTen Series presented by Infinity this afternoon in Guangzhou. Pushed very hard at the start by Yugo Nagashima, the Serpent driver made contact with the pole sitter on lap 7 which allowed Gary Huang to jump into the lead, which he held for 6 laps before being passed again by Jin, the Chinese Xray driver eventually coming home in 3rd having crashed later in the race. Stick King would take 4th with Marco Ma and fellow Xray driver Minhao Lao completing the top 6. ‘The car was very difficult at the start’ explained Sawada which he said was the cause of the first mistake which caused Yugo, who was following closely behind, to tag the back of his IF14 just before the straight. Yugo waited and this allowed Huang through into the lead, the contact also causing the Infinity driver’s body to tuck but quick thinking saw him drive over the dots to untuck the body. Once back on track he could catch and easily pass Gary and pull out an unassailable lead to take the win and maintain his perfect scoring record in this year’s series.

Sawada to start on pole for OneTen Rd4

Again pushed from the start and having to come from behind, Jin Sawada was able to secure the TQ spot for this afternoon’s single 8-minute A-main. Dropping to 2nd in the early part of the run, Sawada got his head down and pulled back the necessary time to go to the top of timing sheets where he stayed to the end. Following a big crash on the last lap Yugo Nagashima would eventually drop down to 4th for the round but he will still start in 2nd in the final. Sawada was on new tires for the last heat and apart from adding more glue to the sidewalls doesn’t plan to make any changes for the final.

Jin pips Yugo on last lap to take Q3

In what was a very close battle between Jin Sawada and Yugo Nagashima, it was the Infinity driver that took the 3rd round of qualifying in Guangzhou, passing his compatriot on the final lap after Yugo misunderstood the announcer and thinking the race was over. In the end, the difference was just 0.045 of a second, the pair very close now on pace, which will make for a very interesting 8-minute final. Finally finding a setup for his Serpent X20, it was Stick King in 3rd place, the Hong Kong driver was much improved this round while Gary Huang completed the top 4, still struggling with the difficult conditions. ‘Super close’ was how Jin summed up the run, also mentioning that the traction was now slightly lower than this morning. Making a mistake, riding up on the curb and half spinning just before the straight while passing Stick King, this lost the Japanese driver only 4 tenths but was enough to drop him to 2nd at that point in the run. For the final qualifier, Sawada will put on a new set of Sweep handout tires and try to seal his 4th TQ of the season.
