Race Report by Jan Ratheisky
I was able to race at the well known GRC Racetrack to be part of the AOC Series.
With lots of strong local guys and changing track conditions each hour it was not so easy to find the best setup for each temperature and traction. However it took me up to Q2 to understand what is going on with the traction and how to react.
In F1 my worlds car went very well from the first pack and I was able to TQ all 4 rounds in combination with the win in A1 and A2.

In the 13.5 Boosted class my car felt great in the last practice runs but lack a bit of steering and bite in Q2 so I was still happy to be 0.2 behind a fast local young star. After changing the springs back to my "basic setting" I was on pace again and TQ´ed Q2 and Q3.
With a bit of tire gambling I ran old tires in Q4. Tried to follow the guys on new but fail with a flip on curb. Anyway... Overall TQ locked ;)
In the final I didn´t change the setup and just tried to drive my normal blocking mode. However there were some crashes behind me resulting in winning the A1 and A2.

What more to say? I enjoyed my stay at the GRC Racetrack in Korea once again very much and I would be very happy to be back next year again. Thanks to the local Xray guys who took care of us all the time and also showed us some cool parts of the city!
