In the Supersixteen class Wong Yew Choong or Boy Wong as the racing world knows him by, took first place with 142 points. A whopping 63 points ahead of Koo Pak Chiang with only 79 points and Moo Wei Leong with 75 points.

“It’s been a good year for me and the team and looking forward to 2010 racing season where we will also concentrate in the Supersaloon class,” said Boy after receiving the Championship trophy.

This makes it his fourth Championship in the Supersixteen class, he added that he is confident that he can manage to go into both class without too much complications as to one race affecting his performance in the other.

“I already drove in a few rounds of the Supersaloon race and I think I can manage both, besides I need the challenge anyway,” said Wong who also won the first Sepang 1000km race this year.
