Boy Witsarut wins K Speed Club Rd4

The fourth round of the K Speed Club race took place this past weekend at the RC Mania track due to flooding at the K Speed location. Boy Witsarut easily adapted his Agama buggy to the new track which has been improved since his last visit, now featuring a couple of changes and a much smoother track surface. Boy Witsarut took TQ and 1st place leading the field by 2 laps. However once again, the drama fell upon the 13 year old Boat Wichapoom as he started 8th with his Agama. All eyes were on Boat Wichapoom and Yuthana who were fighting for 2nd place however unfortunately Boat Wichapoom finished 3rd but only 0.172sec. behind Yuthana.
