Race report by Shafiq and Amirul
The first race of the Trust Hobby Racing XRAY Malaysia Cup Race took place on 28 March 2010 with 20 participants. The morning sunshine and high track temperature made the heats difficult to drive.

The first round of qualifying started at 9:30am. The first heat was very good for Amirul who got 24 laps @ 12sec every lap. Shafiq's engine unfortunately broke down after just 1 minute. In the second heat, Shafiq changed to his Nova 353 engine and got 24 laps because the engine ran out of fuel in the sweeper. The third heat was great as Amirul and Shafiq battled. After 3 minutes run, Amirul had some crashes and that left him with 23 laps while Shafiq
got 25 laps @ 11.3sec every lap and the TQ.
