|P Final Grid||Pull||Hishammudin||Andi Tangguh||Gaddi||PP Minang|
Andi Tangguh was the first leader of heat 1, Christian Gaddi the second leader but none of them could resist the come back of James Pull and Maximilian Fewtrell in what looked like a repeat of their batlle during the Carmona final. This time James won with Maximilian right behind him. Heat 2 was not kind to these two drivers as Maximilian was eliminated right after the start while James retired 2 laps later after a collision with Christian Gaddi in that same curve 1. Heat 3 was won by James with Andi Tangguh not far behind him. The battle for 3rd position in the following group of four drivers was superb. Daim snatched 3rd place from Christian in the last metres, Presley Martono finished 5th a few inches ahead of a disappointed Maximilian (only 6th in heat 3 and on the pre final grid)
PRE FINAL FINAL
|Pre Final||Gaddi||Pull||Hishammudin||Andi Tangguh||P. Martono|
A fantastic pre final we had. Two laps from the end Andi Tangguh Farid Faqih was still in the lead and Christian Gaddi 5th in a group of five with Daim, James and Presley the 3 other racers. On lap 9 it was Daim in the lead, followed by Andi 2nd, James 3rd, Christian 4th and Presley 5th. On the finish line (lap 10) the winner was... Gaddi! Followed by James (+0.245), Daim (+0.298) and poor Andi (+0.425) who had been the leader in 6 out of the 10 laps of that race.
In comparison the final was rather uneventful. Except that Maximilian, starting from 7th on the grid, climbed to 6th on lap 1, 4th on lap 2 and 2nd on lap 3. A one point Maximilian even caught up with the leader Daim and it looked like we were in for a great battle for the win but Maximilian again experienced carburation problems which slowed him down. It was then Daim first (from start to finish) and Maximilian 2nd, Christian 3rd and Presley 4th. James Pull, 2nd on lap 1 dropped to last on lap 2 but still made it to the 5th place on the podium.
