Race report by Bowie Ginting
The first round of 2013 Indonesian 1/10 GP National Championship was held at the JITC Race Track in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The weather was perfectly clear all day but the grip level was a bit low due to last night rain. It was a spooky for me as my car failed to finished in all three qualifying round because of an engine-flame out issue although I was on TQ pace. So, the TQ spot went to Heri Susanto, who was 4 seconds faster then the 2nd driver. I only managed to get 6th, completed the 8 XRAY cars for the A-main.


1. Heri Susanto - XRAY NT1

2. Dimas Ardian
3. Aswin Narwandi - XRAY NT1
4. Toni Kundjung
5. Kenji Taira - XRAY NT1
6. Bowie Ginting - XRAY NT1
7. Rizky Ananda - XRAY NT1
8. Jeff Arianto - XRAY NT1
9. Ricky Kurniawan - XRAY NT1
10. Bill Atan - XRAY NT1

The Main final came underway. I succesfully pull a clean start and sit in 4th after the first lap behind Aswin. Heri, Dimas, Aswin and me pull the gap from the rest of the pack. Aswin made a mistake in the second turn, got flipped and broke his 2nd gear. I tried to catch Dimas and succesfully passed him in 4th minute just before he got a flameout. I was able close the gap between me and Heri and passed him at 12th minute mark after a great battle for about 5 laps. Due to a very high tyrewear, many drivers made a tyre change in 17-20th minutes. At the end, I won the 45 minutes main final, 2 laps ahead of Heri.
