JQ Products Driver Patrix Hutasoit TQs and Wins Rd 6 of the North Sumatra Regional Race on MRCC Track, securing the overall win of the series driving THE car White Edition! Here is a report from Patrix:
On Sunday Dec 8th 2013 we had the Rd 6 Regional Race on MRCC Track in Medan, Indonesia. 35 drivers competing in the 6 race series of 2013 regional championship. After 5 rounds, there were only 4 drivers (Asang, Edy St, Patrix, Hari) who still have a chance to win the regionals. I had to TQ and win this last round race to win, and wonderfully I did just that :) I secured the TQ spot after winning 2 of 3 qualifying rounds. Asang who lead the championship table before this last race also was very fast and TQ the last round of qualifying. Come the A main finals, I had a terrible start after the second small double jump and was last before half of the 1st lap. I managed to climb my way back to the front of the pack, I got lucky that some of the drivers also made mistakes and was back in 1st after just under 10 mins of the 45 minutes race. From that point on I just drove calmly and not pushing hard remembering that I have to win this race to win the whole series. I finished 1st and Asang 2nd on the same lap and Edy St took 3rd. Car and engine was very very good. I can drive the White Edition clean and fast without even trying. My Alpha Ryan Worlds Edition also ran flawlessly the whole race. Lovin the experience! Final Results are:
1st. Patrix Hutasoit JQ THE car White Edition/Alpha/Beta 2nd. Asang Mugen/Reds/Beta 3rd. Edy St Sworkz/S Power/AKA
Finally the wait is over! THE White Edition has shipped world wide, so yes, you will be able to get one before Christmas! However, we have some good/bad news, depending on how you look at it. The demand for the WE was overwhelming, and we actually sold out. So much so, that all distributors were not even able to get kits! This means, that if you want to be sure to get a kit before the next batch will be available late January, ACT FAST! I am sure all distributors and dealers with kits will start promoting them shortly! Watch this space, for a full review and release in text form, as well as a set up guide, specifically written for THE White Edition. For 2014 we are leaving no stone unturned.
As for parts, do not worry, spare parts are available, and have been ordered by distributors. And if you are wondering "What White Edition?" Please check the videos below!
With Rayan Medjoubi contracted with JQ Products until the end of 2016, it is no news that he is continuing to run THECar. But what is news, is the fact that Rayan has now also been picked up by JQ team sponsors AKA and REDS for his tyres and engines. Rayan has already been testing with his new equipment as is very excited for the upcoming racing season! Good luck Rayan!
Atsushi Hara TQs and Wins the JQ Asia Tour Event in Ratchaburi Thailand. Qualifying was still a close affair, with Hara edging out JQ by less than a second. But in the main, Hara switched gears and lapped the field with the new White Edition! JQ finished 2nd and Thai driver Witsarut 3rd with his Agama.
The race attracted about 60 drivers from around Thailand, mainly from the Bangkok area, and south Thailand, even Phuket! It was a successful event and we hope to be back next year. Thank you P'Samart and Ko Hobby!
