Lin wins big at KRC Cup

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 12:00 pm

The Chinese racing season kicked off early for the 2012, with the first race held on KRC racing track on the 8th of January, 2012. Now known as the “Racer’s choice” racing track. Races on the KRC track always attracts a lot of racers, and this time there was no difference. With nearly 80 people joining the Nitro race, and most of the factory drivers in China attending, this race provideed a very clear picture of who’s in the main game for 2012!


With the recently revised setup of my DNX408, I start my qualifying with genuine confidence. My mind set wassimple, I will love to break the track record and the magic 30 seconds per lap barrier, and I am proud to said I have achieved my target – Taking the TQ position with me on the way to going sub-30’s! I may be the first who dip in the magic 30 seconds lap time, but at this meeting I wasn’t the only one. 4 of my fellow racers achieved the magic 19 laps within a ten minutes qualifyer and I knew the A-main will be a tough one!

Sitting in TQ position, the 30 minutes A-main started off cleanly; I was challenged throughout the race with the 6th place qualifier, Li. Eventually, I was able to pull out a gap and end up finishing the race 15 seconds in front. This race was special, because no one ever had taken the TQ spot plus the win before on this new track. We even believed there was a curse involve with who ever got the TQ position – So I was glad to prove that there are no such things in this track! This is also the first time I was able to secure both TQ and A1 with my DNX, and this, make this race ever more special for me.


For the EP class, this is the first time for me to run the DEX408 on this track, and since we only have a one day race, I will say I do not have time to tune my DEX408 100% to suit my driving style. Starting the double 8 minutes A-main in 3rd position, I was able to capture the first step of the podium by finishing the first main in 1st and the 2nd main in second. And, two races two wins for my DEX408 – I am loving this class!
