The Serpent Asia Cup 2017 was a great 2 day race-event again under very nice weather conditions and with a highly motivated race crowd !
The Serpent China and Serpent Hong Kong staff together with TRC track made perfect preparations, so the track looked super with all new banners, nice driver passes, purpose made car-numbers, selected hand out tyres and a well operated race program.
As all Serpent classes were programmed: 1/8 GP , 1/8 EP, 1/10 GP , 1/8 GT Open and 1/8 GT Stock. As invite drivers Michael Salven ( Serpent designer) was present, Nicholas Lee from Singapore, Felix Law from HongKong and world champion Dominic Greiner from Germany.
The TRC track offered a lot of grip and the layout is pretty challenging ! As the track has floodlight, also early night time racing continued.
Free practise on friday, followed by qualifying on saturday and the finals on sunday. For many drivers a nice chance to meet and talk to the invited drivers Salven, Greiner, Law and Lee in person ! The finals weer run in a new format with 3 finals per class, with the exception of the 1/8 scale GP class.
On sunday evening a nice race -diner with traditional Chinese food, combined with the price ceremony !

We plan to stage the SAC 2018 race and probably again in Hong Kong. date to follow asap ! Thanks again to all drivers, mechanics, supporters, invites, staff and TRC track ! Its was super !
