Spec-R S1 Car Racing Held by Racework Hobbies

RaceWorks Hobbies in Singapore organized its first on-road endurance on 2 November 2013. A total of 9 teams took part in the event, run over 4 hours. Each team, consisting of 3-4 drivers, ran the Spec-R S1 Sports Edition 1/10th Touring Car powered by 17.5T motors with ESCs in “Blinky” mode. Teams were required to rotate their drivers every 40mins.

S1 cars are ready!

Despite a thunderstorm that stopped just 45mins before flag-off, the race was able to proceed as planned with only a 15 min delay. Just 2mins into the race, Team Quantum climbed up to the top with very consistent laps. They remained in 1st position throughout the first 2 hours, but mechanical problems in the 3rd hour resulting in several pit stops, allowing the 2nd place car of Team Trident to close up the gap and eventually overtaking Team Quantum for the lead.

With just 40mins to the end of the race, both teams were on the same lap, with Team Trident having a 6 sec advantage over Team Quantum. However, at the very last minute, Team Quantum crashed, losing momentum as a result. With the heat off, Team Trident opened up the gap and finally took the checkered flag completing 606 laps, 2 laps ahead of Team Quantum.

It was worthwhile noting that all 9 teams were still running at the end of 4 hours. A great testament to the Spec-R chassis as well as the preparations all teams had made for this event.

RaceWorks Hobbies would like to thank all participants and race sponsors (Spec-R Racing, Overtake RC and Quantum Racing) for making the race possible.

Results for the race are as follows:

The Champion - Team Trident! Congrats drivers!

The 1st runner up - Team Quantum

The 2nd runner up - Team JonHo
