Asian Touring Car Series Round 2: Ruokonen again; Chau spins.

Toni Ruokonen completed a clean sweep of the 2002 Asian Touring Car Series' opening rounds in his Peugeot 306. With over ten years experience and previous championship victories in the UK and Finland, the 28 year old Finn was always the favourite. "I almost got it wrong on the first lap when I put a wheel on the dirt," he confessed after the race. Ruokonen know looks forward to last year's champion returning to the series at the next round: "I've heard that Nattavude is really quick."

Second and third were the brothers Lo, elder brother Ka Fai beating Ka Chun. After the race Ka Chun said, "I hope to get close to him next time, but he has too much experience for me to be him.... at the moment!"

The Lo brothers father, Lo Hung Pui, took Division 3 honours ahead of compatriot Danny Stacy Chau and Macau's Ao Chi Hong. Chau led from the start but spun when his car jumped out of gear. "It happened again near the end of the race and I nearly lost second place too."
