2017 Event 4 Race 1

2.1 mins

The race started with a bang as the field launched from the grid into Turn 1 where Kane Shepherd and Eshan Pieris found themselves crossing swords. Kane had the better start and got ahead, but going side by side into turn 1, they collided mid corner.

Aaron Love was gifted the lead after the fracas, with Kane and Eshan forced to the back of the pack. Hibiki Taira recovered well despite being forced out because of the incident.

Love held the lead until the seventh lap where he was too defensive going into turn 4 and Daniel Cao took it away from him. The young Aussie didn’t give up and kept within a car length of Cao but couldn’t quite find a way past and had to settle for 2nd.

Meanwhile Ugo was battling it out with Mitchell Cheah, Adam Khalid and Hibiki Taira. The young Belgian managed to pip 3rd ahead of Adam, Hibiki and Mitchel.

Kane and Eshan didn’t let their collision stop them, and climbed halfway back up the grid into 7th and 8th respectively. Eshan managed to set the second fastest lap, qualifying him P2 in the next race.

Luke Thompson meanwhile was fighting to defend his position from Liam Lawrence and Alister Yoong. Looking very strong in his first ever formula race, Yoong fought hard but spun going up the hill into turn 9.

He recovered and re-joined the field, making the final results Benson Lin in 9th followed by Muizz Musyaffar, Liam Lawrence, Luke Thompson and Alister Yoong.
