After the previous 5 rounds, there were only 4 drivers (Asang, Edy St, Patrix, Hari) who still have a chance to win the overall championship. Patrix had to TQ and win this last round race to win, and he did just that! He secured the TQ spot after winning 2 of the 3 qualifying rounds. Asang who lead the championship table before this last race was very fast and TQ’d the last round of qualifying. After a terrible start to the final Patrix who original started first climbed his way back to the front before the first 10 minutes of the 45 minute final and stayed there for the duration of the race.
