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. (However, the overall season title is counted by the best results for five out of seven rounds.)
