Young online claims to get the real drive

PETALING JAYA: A young Malaysian and a Singaporean are set to get a free testing with one of the region’s best karting teams, Stratos Motorsport.

But first, they have to beat their rivals online.

Axle Motorsport, helmed by former F1 driver Alex Yoong, announced the setting up of the Causeway Edition virtual championship , which is sanctioned by the Motorsports Association of Malaysia (MAM).

The event will be held like a regular championship, with races every Sunday at 2pm from April 26 until May 17.

“For this edition, we will be using the Tatuus Formula 4 car, which is just like the real Formula 4 car they use in Europe.

“We will also be racing on four of the fastest and most challenging circuits from around the world – the Brands Hatch Circuit, Zandvoort Circuit, Laguna Seca Circuit and Suzuka Circuit.

“With all these new drivers coming to eSports through online simulator racing, we are keen to provide a world-class platform for these drivers to showcase what they can do,” said Axle Motorsport in a statement.

The best placed Malaysian and Singaporean, aged 18 and under, will get to drive the real thing with Stratos Motorsport.
