My daughter and I landed in Singapore on 29 September 2011. First on the agenda was to check into the Grand Park Hotel along Orchard Road. All drivers then visited the Stargek Tamiya radio control hobby shop.

Video of the 2011 Tamiya Asia Cup finals. The 3 day event summarized into 10 minutes. Includes the Tamiya hobby shop tour, tanks and scale rigs demonstration, action from the Jr. Stock class and some of the award ceremonies. Plus pictures of the concours body contest winners.

Friday was control practise. We arrived at the track around 8:30am and finished the day around 7pm. So far so good, both my car and Porsha (my daughter) were running well.

Saturday was 5 rounds of qualifying. Then Sunday a last round of qualifying. Overall Porsha qualified 2nd on the grid in Jr. Stock while I qualified 2nd on the grid in Formula 1. While we wished for TQ, 2nd was very satisfying.

Racing was a triple A-Main setup. The best two results will determine the overall standings.

A side event was the concours (body beauty contest). It was a good day for Porsha and I as we both won concours in our classes.

Overall it was a good event for Team Philippines, with three of us making the podium and Jomil (FF03 class) winning a trip to Japan to compete in the 2011 Tamiya World Championships.

The Tamiya Asia Cup is a yearly event. For me, it is a lot of fun, a chance to bond with my daughter and meet new friends from other countries. Plus the excitement of racing r/c cars.
