Dilango Racing confirms Nissan entries for GT4 Asia Cup

Published on May 14th, 2010

Dilango Racing have confirmed two Nissan 350Z’s for the newly launched GT4 Asia Cup.

The cars, backed by Nismo engineering, were converted from the Nismo 380RS to comply with the GT4 Asia Cup regulations.

Unfortunately, the cars, which were scheduled to arrive for this weekend were delayed due to a last minute overbooking problem with the airfreight. The cars were in Fuji, Japan for a shakedown and were unable to be flown in on time.

Malagamuwa although disappointed at not being able to race in the Nissan, will still be competing in the first two rounds in an Aston Martin N24.

“Ringo Chong is helping me with the car and if it was not for him I would have lost out on the chance to gain some valuable points this weekend” said a grateful Malagamuwa.

“GT4 is going to be one of the best racing series in Asia, as it is low cost with powerful cars providing some fantastic racing. Our team, Dilango Racing, will be getting technical support from Nismo this year and we will have two race cars, I will be driving one and the second driver will be announced soon. I hope to win the first GT4 Asia Cup Championship.” he concluded.

The FIA sanctioned GT4 Asia Cup Series will begin during the Asian Festival Of Speed event on 14-16 May 2010 at the Sepang International Circuit. The series will then be a part of the Super GT event, also in Sepang, for Rounds 3 & 4. The GT4 Asia Cup will be competing at some of the best circuits in Asia including new F1 circuit in Korea, Fuji and Autopolis race tracks in Japan.

The Asian Festival Of Speed Malaysia Event will also see over 800 cars from the various Car Clubs around Malaysia lining up at the grandstand for the Car Club Gathering & Display alongside the Autoshow, ICE Competition and various booths.

There will also be three cars from the ICE Display joining the grid during the Opening Ceremony along with the KL Drumline Corps, 20 lovely GT Grid Girls and the beautiful “AFOS Angels”.

The Opening Ceremony will be made even more exciting with a planned group shot with the GT3 Asia and GT4 Asia Cup drivers all lined up alongside their GT cars with the participants of the Car Club Gathering & Display lined up on the grandstand behind them.

For the first time, AFOS will host a ‘Roti Canai’ Eating Competition, sponsored by Kayu Nasi Kandar. The competition is open to all spectators and three rounds will be held at the grandstand. Participation is RM10 and the winner, the person who eats five Roti Canai in the fastest time or the most in three minutes, will walk away with RM150!

Entrance to the Asian Festival Of Speed is FREE and the Pit-Walkabout access is only RM10 per person.
