May 11, 2003, 1/10th Shah Alam Parking Lot
Organised by : RC Pitstop
Class: 1/10th Nitro Touring Open
RC Pitstop again organised this race at the same place with the previous race last 2 months ago! The venue was Shah Alam Stadium parking lot next
to the go-kart. The response for this race was overwhelming (thanks to extra class Novice!) and I heard from the organiser, they had no choice but to
reject some entries, fearing the race may take too long to complete or may not even complete, understandbly since it's raining often in this area.
This race had 110 entries! Each round took about 2 hours to complete, though long but ample time to repair car and chit chatting! When I checked at
the meteorological website, it says raining in the afternoon but what turned out was a blazing hot sunny day! At the end of the day everyone seems
tan and ended up with nice brown and fair skin color contrast caused by the sunglasses and watches on our faces and wrist. :)
There were many upset event happened, fast drivers having problem with heavy backmarkers and aggresive drivers. Some even have problem in
qualifying heats, engine tuning problem ...(ok..that's me and Azri), crystal cracking problems (Unc Yap), of course with all these things around,
the whole race looks fun and challenging.
Track marshals were strict against pitting rules and track jumping, 5 seconds penalty can be heard often! Anyway good job to the organiser and i am
sure with this...the standard of RC racing in KL will improve. But only one more thing to go, we need to educate fresh racers to be courteous and not
racing like a mad man going around knocking on others a$$ !!! Anthony Wee and me were having a hard time running away from them!
I did not manage to get a complete results (actually lazy to get)...there were so many finals !!! A main final was fun, fast...and slow too!! haha...
It started off with all cars like rockets...Steven, Anthony and Leonard were swapping the lead position for awhile..then one by one luck went out from
them, Anthony had a broken exhaust tubing, Steven had a nice and comfortable race until a broken diff gear took him out...and all this allows the
most experience racer in KL, Ong CY to steal the lead away by cruising slowly but surely to the victory with his GT4.

4 Associated NTC3
2 Mugen MTX3
