The Indonesia National Buggy Rd 1 was held on 28 – 29 March 2015 at MRCC Track , Medan, North Sumatera .
A total of 45 racers attended the event from Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Bali and Medan.
The race format should be 5 rounds of 7 minutes, 4 rounds on Saturday and 1 round on Sunday, qualifying times with 4 best rounds to count.
Due to heavy rain, before qualifying rd 4 on Saturday, our race director decided to take 3 best rounds of 4 qualifying times with 1 Qualifying round on Sunday. The finals were run from 1/4 final with 5 drivers bump up.
After 4 times qualifying, I got overall position no. 2. I started from position no. 1 at semifinal B. I was lucky to get a clean start without any collision and finish position no. 1 at semifinal B. In the main final, I started from position no. 1 on starting grid and as usual I got a bit traffic on start and I tried to take back my 1st around 20 min race and I maintained it until the end of race.
Here’ the main final result after 60 min race:
1. Jason Nugroho - XRAY XB8
2. Adrian Wicaksono(TQ)
3. Stanley Wangsanegara
4. Reza Rakasiwi
