Am vergangenen Wochenende fand auf der sehr großen und neuem GRC Raceway in Südkorea eine Lauf zur Asian Onroad Championship – AOC statt. Einen tollen Job hat hier Herr Kim gemacht und Scotty Ernst einen guten Veranstaltungsort für die Rennserie gefunden. Vor Ort war auch der deutsche Fahrer Jan Ratheisky. Der amtierende Europameister Formel konnte das Rennen in zwei Klassen als Sieger beenden. Ergebnisse und mehr in der englischen Version.
Hier zunächst ein Blick auf die Strecke.
Last weekend I was racing at the very great and new GRC Raceway in South Korea. Before I start my short report I need to say it was absolutely awesome there. All clean, very great detail solutions and for sure an absolutely Top level track. Well done Mr. Kim! 😉
This race I was starting in the F1 and TC 13.5 boosted class. Both of my cars worked very fine from the start with my easy to drive basic setups. Those will follow later. So I just tested a bit with bodyshells, speedo / motor settings and wing Positions in F1
Saturday finally the quallies were about to start:
Q1: TQ in TC and F1. Cars felt very good on new tires.
Q2: TQ and F1 and 3rd in TC. As always I was choosing to run on used tires for the tire gambling strategy 😉
Q3: TQ in both classes. Gambling paid off.
Q4: TQ again in both classes which set me 1st on the grid in F1 and TC Boosted
A1: With new tires on both classes I was able to win tone to tone. Suprised about a good chasing of the young talent Dung Uk Jang. I’m sure we will hear something from him in the future. Badly for him he got stuck in traffic wich allowed me to pull away
A2: Because of my tire strategy I had new tires left again in both classes and could pull away from the start and win ton to tone. WIN the AOC in Korea whoohoo 😉
I want to thank also to all my sponsors on this point which made this trip possible and specially James Park from „Team James Racing“ who took care of me and my mate Dominic very well.
