During the 45min Main Final, I started in position no.2. During the first 10 minutes, I dropped back to 12th position because so many cars hit me and made my car flip. I tried to drive fast and step-by-step overtook all the cars ahead of me. With 15 minutes to go, I was up to 2nd place and tried to drive steadily. I finished in 2nd place only 29sec behind the winner. My best lap was 50.142sec. The 2nd fastest laptime was Edy St with a 50.551sec.

On the Final, I finished with 47 laps; Edy St got 44 laps cause of an engine flameout. There's no big problem on our XRAY cars even though the track was very tricky and dusty. All the XRAY users were very happy with their cars‘quality.
