Car : Toyota 86, Suzuki Swift Sport
1)Everyone knows ACMA now has 2 teams for the Team Challenge. Harold and Hutch form the ACMA Hyper Attack, and both of you, Jeremy & Chase are Team ACMA Max Attack. Both teams have been performing well in the Team Challenges so far. Tell us, how does it feel being part of such a strong and competitive group.
Jeremy : It’s an honor to be in such a strong team. I’m grateful to veteran racer Chase for believing in me & (ACMA Boss) Alvin for giving me the chance.
Chase : I am delighted that Alvin (ACMA’s Boss) offered me the privilege to join Team ACMA, a recognition which meant alot to me. I love the freedom and trust Alvin gives to the drivers. This bonds us with confidence, enables us to fully commit and focus on the race.
2) What are the challenges you experience during Autotest? Which are the areas you think can be improved?
Jeremy : The challenges I’m facing are consistency & tyre management throughout each race. Rectifying my mindset & a more disciplined driving should help me improve. Also, having ACMA technical support crew on site during each race is a big ease off my mind to focus on driving.
Chase : To perform at ones best, I always believe in using a car which you’re are familiar with, driven on all road condition, weather, a car which you know in and out. That’s the reason why I’m using my daily Swift for all events. Maybe I should say familiarity is the strength which helps, even if I am having a underpowered street car.
3) Overall, do you think Autotest is a good platform for beginners? What would you say to those street drivers out there, to encourage them to take up this sport?
Jeremy : It’s definitely a good start for beginner. It’s a very safe & controlled platform for understanding your car, improving your driving skills & awareness. Besides, it’s just great fun hanging out sharing the love of motorsports with all the grassroots community!
Chase : Yes, I made lot of friends during the events. Today achievement wouldn’t not be possible without sponsorships from ACMA Engineering, FK Massimo High Spec Engine Oil and Hiap Hong & Co. Also, my teammate Jeremy for looking out for me, Team ACMA like Danza, Kong, Alvin the big boss, Sylvester, Hutch and Harold. They are my family and meant a lot to me. Also to all my supporters especially those racers in Malaysia, Thank you!
