Team Xray reports - "Round 7 of the Just Hobby Nitro Challenge took place on September 7 at the Just Hobby Race Circuit. The morning began well with sunshine to dry off the damp track caused by the rain during the night. Due to the rain in the night, the traction was bad in the morning. The first round of qualifying started at about 10:00AM with most drivers struggling to get a good run due to the low traction. By the second round of qualifying, traction was back to normal and Tom Goh was driving his NT1 with amazing speed, setting the single lap track record of 13.571sec for this track putting him in a TQ position. However, by the third and final round of qualifying, Tom lost his TQ position by about half a second." Read More... [Source - teamxray.com]
