Remarks – Japanese Infinity driver Akio Sobue is running his prototype Infinity touring car with the same basic setup that he used to win the recent opening round of the CETC. Changing only the front and rear upper links on his car to give them more angle to compensate for the lower grip and the different tires, the only other change he has made is to cut a slot on the front of the top deck to give the car more flex. Akio has also chosen to run the Stock Spec battery from LRP which is slightly heavier, for better balance and he because he also believes it is more consistent over the 5 minute run.
