Thailand Super Series (TSS) at Buriram
Sunday race

With the reverse grid the new Toyota Revo had claimed its first ever pole position, thanks to that strong run by Khun Songsak in the first race, with Khun Yuth alongside him.

Row 2 comprised of Khun Waris and Khun Phisit while the comfortable winner of Race 1, Khun Tanawat, led out Row 3 with Khun Chaleampon alongside him.

At the start Khun Yuth and Khun Waris had a great start to depose Khun Songsak and move into first and second place with the Toyota third and over the first lap they pulled away from the pack while there was a big squabble going on for fourth.

Four trucks started from the pitlane and one on the move already was Khun Philip, he was up to seventh at the end of the first lap.

By the end of the second lap Khun Yuth was pulling away and had 2.5 seconds over Khun Waris who had 2 seconds over Khun Songsak who in turn had fallen into the clutches of Khun Akasit while Khun Phillip was having a great race and was up to fifth.

Lap 3 and Khun Philip was all over Khun Akasit in what had become the battle for second as Khun Songsak had dropped away and Khun Waris was gone. Race 1 winner Khun Tanawat joined them on lap 4 as it became a three-truck battle for second.

Khun Phillip muscled through and now Khun Tanawat was all over Khun Akasit. Meanwhile, Khun Ekasit spun out of sixth place on the approach to Turn 5 but recovered after loosing time.

At the end of the fourth lap Khun Yuth had 7.1 seconds over Khun Phillip who had crucially broken the challenge of Khun Thanawat and had stretched out a 2.5 second cushion so he could now focus on trying to haul down the deficit to the race leader.

But no sooner than Khun Philip had got the bit between his teeth than he lost power for a second day; it was bitter disappointment for the pacy Australian as the intercooler hose had burst and he quickly started to drop away before pitting at the end of the lap.

At the end of lap 5 Khun Yuth crossed the line with 13.6 seconds of an advantage and as the race headed for the halfway point it seems to be game over.

 Further back Khun Jaras was making steady progress; he had started down the back but was by now up to eighth.

Six laps to go and the gap at the front was steady, Khun Yuth was well down the road, with Khun Tanawat in second, while Khun Songsak had recovered his pace to hold onto third and Khun Chaleampon was up to P4 and leading Class C with Khun Wuttichai wrapping up the top five and also holding down second in Class C.

A bit further back Khun Jaras and Khun Pheerawat were slugging it out for eighth. Into the ninth lap and Khun Chaleampon finally muscled past Khun Songsak into third.

It stayed that way over the final three laps as Khun Yuth eased out to an 18.4 second victory over Khun Tanawat who after running away from everyone in Race 1 seemingly had no answers to Khun Yuth’s pace.

However post race Khun Yuth would be excluded for a technical infringement and that handed Khun Thanawat his second win of the weekend.

Khun Chaleampon was 7 seconds further back to claim the overall runners up spot and to win Class C. Khun Songsak showed that the new ‘Revo’ has plenty of promise to unlock as he took third place for the second day in a row while his team mate in the other band new Toyota worked his way up to finish in sixth place.

The top five was wrapped up by Khun Akasit and Khun Nuthaporn, the latter had been forced to race without the fifth gear that he lost the day before, as the team wasn’t carrying a spare part.

With two maximum points scores to his name Khun Thanawat left Buriram as the championship leader with 40 points.

Next up is Khun Songsak who enjoyed a rewarding couple of races in the brand new Revo to bank the points, 27 in fact, and that positions him very well in the championship for the next rounds when his new machine should be much more competitive.

 Khun Nuthaporn is next with 20 points ahead of Khun Jaras and Khun Akasit on 16 points apiece.

As well as his overall triumphs Khun Thanawat also picked up both Class B wins and has 40 points while Khun Nuthaporn is second in Class B on 24 points.

Both Class C wins went to Khun Chaleampon and that meant he also left Buriram with the maximum score available, 40 points, while Khun Anulak is next up in Class C, he’s on 27 point
