ARC R10 wins 2015 Malaysia National Championships Round 3
The track is located in a public garden, being medium-sized with low to medium traction. The race was mostly affected by rain with only a few hours in the Saturday morning for practise. A rainstorm would fall in the afternoon finishing the day. With a wet morning on Sunday, the organizer decided to start the qualifying on a wet track which was rather unusual as all setups used would be a guessing. Fearing of more rain, the drivers had no choice to run the heats. A small rain fall again started in the the last heat of Q2 Modified. The race would again delayed a few hours due to rain, and finally resumed for Q3. The finals would fiinished on a lower traction condition.
In the Modified Class, Norazam ORCA-powered ARC R10 would take the TQ spot, followed by Shahrin, with P.Y.Tang in 3rd in another ORCA-powered ARC R10. In the A-Finals, P.Y.Tang started off with a good pace and eventually overtook the front two cars to take the win in Leg 1 and 2. Norazam took overall 2nd and Wong Kok Wai in 3rd.
