Two of Singapore’s veteran gymkhana drivers, Mr. Johnny Wong and Mr. Terence Soh are set to represent Singapore in the Taiwan Auto Gymkhana Prix from 24th to 25th Sep 2016.

“It is my first time participating in Taiwan and I am extremely honoured to be chosen to represent Singapore. It is a good opportunity to exchange pointers on driving and also to benchmark the Asia-pacific region’s standard against our own,” Mr. Terence said.

Mr. Terence and Mr. Johnny will be competing using the Luxgen S3 1.6, provided by the organisers for all participants. The Luxgen S3 is a frontwheel drive vehicle and left hand drive with Auto Transmission. The left hand drive, according to Mr. Johnny, will be one of the main challenges for them in this event.

“The last such international gymkhana compeition was organised by Taiwan ASN 10-11 years ago. I am sure SMSA-Singapore ASN will be sending our top drivers to such events if there are more events like this,” Mr. Johnny Wong replied in response to a discussion on future Singapore participation in similar events.
