    The underpowered cars totally outclassed the highpowered competitors in Class 1; showing that power was not everything in an endurance race. Team Ultra Racing Kegani Torco won the second edition of the Sepang 1000-kilometer Endurance Race at Sepang Circuit tonight; winning in sensational style in a 1600cc Toyota Levin machine as it upstaged the higher powered 1800cc cars.

    Featuring Kenny Lee, Christopher John O’Shannessy and Hsiao Tung Wei, the team took eight hours 32 minutes and 1.455 seconds to cover 181 laps of the 5.543-km to cover the required 1,000 kilometers as it led another Class 2 entry – Type R Racing Team - to finish second overall.

    Not only lower in cc, Kegani's race cars, number 36, 37, 38 & 39 all enter the race without spoiler. Can I say aerodynamic not important in endurance race?

    i would say due to low displacement...they opt to keep the aerodynamic drag lower....so fuel consumption at a manageable pace as well as allowing them to achieve higher topspeed from minimum drag....


    or its just their style racing without spoiler....:idea:
