Aston Martin Asia Cup Ready For Its F1 Date!

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

The Aston Martin Asia Cup (AMAC) returns with pride to support
the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix. Last year’s race saw the
Aston martin Asia Cup, in its debut year, thrill spectators with an
exciting battle with drivers from Asia and beyond plus a former
Formula One Star!

The 2009 Season So Far…
The Aston Martin Asia Cup comes to Marina Bay with eight
thrilling rounds under its belt. This year has seen some titanic
battles, none more so than for the Championship lead which is
currently a duel between Mark Williamson, of Concord Motorsport
and last year’s vice-Champion Dilantha Malagamuwa, of Dilango
Racing. These epic races have taken place across Asia and in a first for AMAC, included the series’ first night race
in support of the Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race (MMER) at Sepang, Malaysia, last month. Throughout the
field there has been exciting and entertaining racing.
Whilst the battle for the Championship is sure to be the forefront of
their minds, neither contender can rule out the threat from the many
other able drivers who’ll be looking to mark their mark on this
prestigious event in Singapore. The home spectators will have no
fewer than six drivers to support in the race. Amongst these is Ringo
Chong, a podium finisher in last year’s race who will be keen to
repeat the feat. Mel Choo, whose 2009 season has seen him add the
might of the Mosler in Super GT to his racing credentials, will be
eager for home glory. A welcome returnee to the AMAC grid is Mok
Weng Sun, his Team PCS Racing have such honours as winning the
MMER in 2008.
It could be said Singapore have six and a bit to support in AMAC with Nasrat Muzayyin’s Singaporean team,
Concord Motorsport, fielding a total of 4 cars including Williams’ Championship contender. From further afield
Canada’s Eric Cheung is making great grounds in his first full year of AMAC racing whilst Frenchman Jean-Marc
Merlin will be looking to add a little magic. Malaysia is represented by Tunku Hammam, who already has a race
win to his credit this season. Hong Kong is represented by Andrew Luk and Frank Yu.
