After having to settle for second best in the last five races, Team Atlantic's Matthew Palfreyman returned to winning ways soundly beating Sweden's 'Justin Bieber' lookalike Jesper Forss by a huge margin.
However the Swede still leads the championship by 10 points so even if Palfreyman wins tomorrow's final race of the year, Forss will have to finish 4th or lower to give the title to the Brit.
The leading two drivers were do dominant they lapped the entire field including 3rd place Qatar's Khalid Al Kuwari. If Team Nauta's Tobias Munthe-Kaas had not lost his sense of direction twice while attempting to overtake the Qatari driver he could have clinched 3rd place.
Team Mad Croc's Hungarian driver Viktor Vo was another who lost time spinning out while Abu Dhabi, Singha Team and CTIC China rounded out the last three places.
