H-Energy and ZTW podium at Tamiya Asia Cup Qualifying Singapore 2010 Round 6 Finale (August 15, 2010)
Another season ends as the Season Finale of the 13th Tamiya Asia Cup Singapore Championships 2010 Round 6 took place at the Racecraft Race Complex. 4 classes were competed in F1, Super Stock Touring, Mini and the fastest class 4WD GT. Chee Lip Keong and P.Y.Tang finished in 2nd and 3rd respectively in the 4WD GT Class to complete the season finale with podium finishes for H-Energy and ZTW.
In the 4WD GT Qualifying Leg 1 and 2, Chee Lip Keong held the TQ spot but in Leg 3, P.Y.Tang snatched the TQ honour after making changes to final drive ratio on his Tamiya TA05R. Jason Lee would start from 3rd qualifying position.
The A-Finals typically dominated by P.Y.Tang was a little different this time as Chee Lip Keong took the win in A1 followed by Hasron and HJ Quek. P.Y.Tang regained his composure by securing the A2 with a blistering run with Jason Lee finishing 2nd. It was down to final A3 where podium spots are up for grabs between P.Y.Tang, Chee Lip Keong and Jason Lee. With a slow start at the tone, P.Y.Tang dropped to 2nd when Chee Lip Keong blasted through the first corner to move into 1st. Jason Lee followed closely in 3rd. Contact by Jason Lee at the left hair-pin dropped P.Y.Tang all the way down in the pack. Chee Lip Keong led the race with Jason Lee reeling down the leader, while P.Y.Tang was gaining some grounds to the leaders in every lap. The position stayed the same until the very last lap, when all P.Y.Tang and Jason Lee caught up to Chee Lip Keong. Under some pressure, Chee Lip Keong went wide at the right hand sweeper allowing Jason Lee to take the inside line, but just not enough for P.Y.Tang to gain a spot. Final A3 ended up with Jason Lee taking 1st, Chee Lip Keong 2nd and P.Y.Tang 3rd. Overall win by Jason Lee is his first in the Tamiya Asia Cup Qualifying in Singapore, with Chee Lip Keong overall 2nd and P.Y.Tang overall 3rd, in the season finale at the Round 6 of the Tamiya Asia Cup Qualifying Singapore 2010.
