Race report by Ben Panic:

The final round of the Malaysian nationals was run over the weekend in hot and dusty conditions at 3Stonepark. With special appearances from Illias Arkoudaris and Wisarut representing Tekno it was sure to be a great final race to the series. On Saturday  TQ went to young Danny Kato and his JConcepts shod Tekno. His local knowledge and great driving gave him a well-deserved TQ in the pro class.

In semi-pro George Coleman piloted his Kyosho to the TQ setting him up well for the semi-finals on Sunday. Finals day was cooler with cloud cover, the semis were run and with no issues for any of the top drivers it was going to be a stacked field for the mains. The semi-pro main was run first up and Adam Fikri once again held a huge lead on the field, his Kyosho was on rails and he was headed towards victory until disaster when his wheel fell off. Ku Chi Siong the experienced man of the field took over the lead and won the race to a huge roar from the spectators. Rounding out the podium were Adam and George.

The pro main got underway and Wisarut and David Lim got away well with Danny Kato. The rest of the field was involved in a horrendous first lap and it took a few laps for the drivers to settle down. Wisarut had the lead and never looked back, Kenny Chin and his Kyosho drove a masterful race in to second place, his pace all weekend had been excellent. Danny Kato suffered a flameout when a mashall put his hand on the flywheel. His race for the podium came to an end. Driving a solid race to catch up after being caught up in the first lap issues was Didier Perrin, he managed to lock down the third position on the podium. A great end to the 2016 series, drivers travelling all over Malaysia to fight for the chance to be crowned champion and have fun with their friends.
