Team CRC Japan Wins Big!
CRC's Hayato Ishioka T.Q.s and wins the
2013 Asian Onroad Championships
Held at the world famous Yatabe Arena.
Young CRC driver, Hayato Ishioka from Japan dominates the 2013 Asian Onroad Championships at the Yatabe arena. Ishioka won all 4 rounds of qualifying and swept the first 2 A-mains! Hayato used a CRC Altered Ego 1/12th car, CRC 7000 1s pack and CRC Pro Cut tires! Awesome result from the strong CRC Japan team!
The final round of the Asian Onroad Championship took place at the historic Yatabe Arena. Yatabe is known as one of the most historic venues in all of RC racing. The event was run on the big road course track that features CRC Fastrak Racing Carpet. In attendance, World Champions Andy Moore, Naoto Matsukura and Meen Vejrak as well a plethora of fast racers from 12 different countries.
In 1/12th scale modified, all eyes were on 3-time World Champion Naoto Matsukura, the young Yokomo ace is always blistering fast, especially at home on Yatabe's track. However, it was the young Team CRC Japan driver, Hayato Ishioka, who stole the show taking the TQ spot, winning every qualifier, despite some transponder problems.
From his pole position in the first A final (A1), Hayato had a disastrous start as he was hit on the first lap; the crash sending him from 1st to last. Showing great poise like a seasoned veteran, he methodically worked his way back through the field and in the closing laps, was able to retake the lead to the cheers of the crowd and earn a hard fought win in A1. Final number #2 (A2) was a fight also but not as dramatic as A1 and some perfect driving from Hayato earned him a solid win in A2. The 1-1 finish allowed him to sit out A3 and gave him his first major Modified 1/12th scale win. Simply an impressive, solid run from the young racer.
Hayato used his CRC Altered Ego 1/12th car, CRC Pro Cut tires and our Rocket Fuel 1s pack. Congratulations to Hayato and Team CRC Japan led by Mr. Kimihiko Yano.
