P.Y.Tang and Orca TQ and win at RCMC 1/10 EP Singapore Open Series 1 (June 13, 2010)
RCMC held their long anticipated 1/10 EP Singapore Open Series 1 at the PA Track at East Coast Park in Singapore on June 13, 2010. The track is normally used by 1/10 gas-powered touring cars. Therefore, the track is very high-speed and challenging. The corner markers were very challenging as slight touch would cause your car to roll and would even send your lanuching, as many drivers were having trouble manoeuvering these corners. The day started out hot and sunny, with 2 classes to compete in the Modified Open and Super Stock Touring class.
In the Modified Open qualifying heats, P.Y.Tang's Tamiya TRF416X was in control putting in clean and consistent runs, which he secured TQ position at 19 laps 5:08, one of the only 5 cars that managed 19 lappers. The qualifying position was followed by Joe Hwee, Barry Ng, Chee Lip Keong (H-Energy) and Allister Lim. In the A-Main Final 1, P.Y. on the pole easily powers out from the start of the tone. Joe Hwee was following closely but made a slight mistake after a few laps and P.Y.Tang outpaced the rest and cruised back to finish 1st. The Modifed Open A-Main Final 2 and 3 was cancelled due to heavy rain, and the final result was based from the Final 1. This is the second race that P.Y.Tang uses the new Orca RC products and he stated that he is very happy with the performance and high power the product delivers by the Orca Infinite 5500Mah 50C 7.4V LiPo. P.Y. would continue to choose Orca RC products to be his equipments for the Modified Open class.
