Leaving the field far behind, the pair head into the last minute, where Hirosaka makes a pass on Kimura heading onto the straight.

Starting from 2nd position on the A-final grid, Masami Hirosaka makes use of the awesome power and runtime of his batteries to pilot his BD past Atsushi Hara, finishing 1st and posting the fastest A-final time of 28L 8:10.853.
Hirosaka, reknown for his 1/12th scale prowess, finished on top of the qualifying order this day, but was followed closely by 4 other competitors who were within a mere 1.5 seconds of his time, leaving little to no room for mistakes. Scattered showers on the second day brought in humidity, which seemed to improve the track conditions even further. A practice round and 3 qualifiers were scheduled this day, and although Hirosaka set the fastest time in the 3rd round, newly crowned Offroad Japanese National Champion Kimura and other fellow team members raised their pace and moved up the order in round 4. The highly anticipated 5th and final round of qualifying belonged to Kimura, setting incredible lap times and putting in a fantastic run that would allow him to secure the TQ spot over Hirosaka. Making it into the A-final were Kimura, Hirosaka, Maruyama, Fukuda and Akira Suzuki of Team Yokomo, Kitazawa of Team Futaba, and privateers Sakamoto and Mitsumizo, all of whom used the Associated RC12. In the first final, Hirosaka took the lead at the start, and never looked back to take the win. Capitalizing on Kimura's mistake on the opening lap, Hirosaka took the lead and extended it to where he was able to cruise to the finish for the win, and the championship.

Fighting for the top spot in the invitational class was former world champs, Hot Bodies Atsushi Hara and Yokomo's Masami Hirosaka.Just when it looked like Hara would make it a clean sweep for the win in the early rounds, Hirosaka wouldn't go down so easy.It all came down to the last qualifier with Masami in the lead needing that crucial win to take the over all win.Marc Rheinard piloting his Tamiya 416 was right on Masami's rear view mirror and would make then pass when Hirosaka rolled and that bobble eventually cost him the over all win; Atsushi Hara would take top honors.
