In April 2010, Mazda Singapore organised Advanced Driver Training and a circuit day at Johor Circuit, Pasir Gudang. Here’s a collection of the action!
After much rumour and speculation, the construction of Singapore’s first ever racing circuit, the Changi Motorsports Hub, commenced with an official Ground-Breaking Ceremony at the Hub’s venue grounds along Aviation Park Road. Over 200 guests were in attendance with Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches and some drift cars on display.
Developers SG Changi Pte Ltd, the consortium selected by the Singapore Sports Council in March this year to design, build, finance and manage the Hub took the opportunity to introduce its Executive Chairman, Fuminori Murahashi, whose experience in international motorsports is claimed to be vital for the project.
The S$330 million facility is located on a 41-hectare sea-facing site near Changi Airport, and will feature a 3.7km main track, a 1.2-kilometre kart track, and seating for up to 20,000 spectators. It is expected to be operationally-ready by the end of 2011 and ready for … Read More »
Tengku Djan lived up to his moniker, the “Tandem Assassin”, at the Formula DRIFT Singapopre 2010, making it look so easy as he dominated the weekend at the Marina Bay F1 circuit. But all sorts of other stuff go on behind the scene.
This is part 1 of the story, as always, in video!
As usual, we bring you the Best Girlie photos! This set courtesy of our resident photographer, Carlos Nizam.

Unfortunate circumstances saw his teammates out before the Sweet-16, but Hanizam Hamzah soldiered on with tremendous fighting spirit. Certainly, he had the most drama of the weekend!
The weekend started off badly for him when his bonnet flew open and cracked the windscreen on Saturday, causing his crew to put in a super-human effort to replace it (where do you find a windscreen in Singapore??) and get the car out just in time to qualify.
His Best-32 run was marred by incident (I’m not telling what, watch the video to find out!), and then he had to go up against 2nd qualifier, the Japanese driver Atsushi Murata from Japan, for which he whipped out a surprising but planned victory, and moved up to the Quarter-Finals.

There’s so much video footage, we’re going to have to upload them bit-by-agonising-bit over the next few days, so stay tuned doriftorati (yeah, you heard that term HERE first!). But to keep your pants wet for the time being, here’s the Best-32 Tsuiso results (click on the thumbnail below for a readable hi-res version), and a couple of mean pics by our resident photographer, Carlos Nizam..
Hot of the press, Tengku Djan has just won the first round of the Formula Drift Asia series for this year, held at Marina Bay GP Circuit in Singapore.
Runner-up was his Bridgestone teammate Tan Tat Wei, followed by Goodyear’s Fanga-Dan from New Zealand taking up 3rd place.
Further details and, of course, videos will come tomorrow. Let me do the long drive back to KL first!
