Fingers were crossed more tightly than ever for good weather at Bottle Tree Park on Sunday so the RaceWorks Elite Racing Series (RERS) and the RaceWorks On-road Championship Series (ROCS) could run a full race schedule.

Unfortunately, nature was not in a good mood and intermittent rainfall was experienced all day. Having rained in the morning, the track was just drying up for race start when rain started to fall. The rain came and went for the next few hours, finally easing up briefly after lunch so the various race categories could run the first qualifying session.

If there’s anything that frustrates racing drivers in Singapore, it’s our erratic weather. As much as we all look forward to watching some solid racing, the rain has done much to upset the racing plans of teams, organisers and spectators alike.

For example, the inaugural RaceWorks Elite Racing Series (RERS) held at Bottle Tree Park has unfortunately encountered rain on all three rounds so far.

RaceWorks Elite Racing Series 2013: Team Tamiya SG

Round 2 of the inaugural RaceWorks Elite Racing Series 2013 will be coming up this Sunday and the five teams – Team ARC Singapore, Team HB/HPI, Team Tamiya SG, Team Xray Singapore and Team Yokomo Singapore – will be back to fight for top honours.

In the first round, PY Tang of Team Xray Singapore and Alvin Koh of Team Tamiya SG ended up in a tiebreaker with each winning two rounds of the four legs (winner is determined by best three of the four). Eventually it was PY who narrowly edged Alvin out for the overall winner of Round 1, as the tiebreak is based on the best total number of laps recorded out of any of the three best finals.

Although Alvin has been relatively inactive in the RC car racing scene the past three years, he managed to get back on form pretty quickly for the RaceWorks Elite Racing Series. His team-mate Nicholas Lee, touted as one of Singapore’s best RC car racers currently, was absent from the first round due to national service commitments.
