PETRONAS MOFAZ RACING makes first international debut at Guangdong International Circuit

Published on August 30th, 2010

The PETRONAS MOFAZ Racing Team will make its first international debut during the race weekend of 2 to 5 September 2010 as the Formula BMW Pacific Series enters into its autumn season at the Guangdong International Circuit. The event will host Rounds 7 to 10 of the series and as a support event for the Hong Kong Autosport Challenge.

Calvin Wong, racing in his second year in the Formula BMW Pacific, will be looking forward to improve his current 4th position in the drivers’ championship standing as the series enters the autumn season. Aiming to improve their overall standings, teammates Natasha Seatter, Abang Amirrul Hadi Khiruddin and Ryan Ritchie also have their targets set on their quest for the Rookie Championship titles, having undergone intensive training and preparation outside of their respective race machines throughout the summer. The team will also be hoping to make headway to improve their stand in the overall team championship, with the target being consistent performances for the weekend at Guangzhao.

With hot weather and occasional thunderstorms forecasted for the race weekend, the team will be putting all the data and knowledge acquired from the first 6 rounds of the series to ensure that both drivers and their race vehicles will give their best performances.

Team Principal, Haji Fauzy: “As the Guangdong International Circuit would be a new track for everyone, it should be interesting to observe how everyone adapts and fares. Over the summer break, the drivers have had an intensive and full workout schedule to keep them in great physical and mental shape, and the cars have been thoroughly and well-prepared, ready for the challenge ahead. Our target at Guangdong is to fly the Malaysian flag at the podium, in commemoration and conjunction with our nation’s 53rd Merdeka Day. We certainly look forward to more positive results this weekend!”

After Guangzhao, the team will take on the challenge of the next round of the Formula BMW series as a support event to the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix on 23 to 26 September 2010. The final two rounds will take place at the Asian Festival of Speed (AFOS) at Japan’s Okayama International Circuit on 29 to 31 October 2010, with the historic Macau Grand Prix hosting the season finale on 19 to 21 November 2010.
