The Melaka Attack

Bringing their third round to Melaka International Motorsports Circuit (MIMC), the Forca Generation X Time Attack event got even more exciting as the Singapore Aces come face to face with the top Malaysian grassroots drivers.

This was Project SG Racing Crew first participation in the Generation X Time Attack that was held at the MIMC. MIMC is an intermediate circuit consists of 900m worth of hairpins and 800m of straights.

The difference between the Malaysian-version from the Singapore-organised event, Generation X Time Attack made the race more challenging by implementing slight changes to the track configuration.

Hanz (organiser for Forca Generation X) trimmed down the straight to only 700m. With this race layout, drivers could only trim off their timing at the hairpins rather than depending on the straights to shorten their lap times. This required much more more effort than the usual full-track configuration.

Attracted a total of 153 drivers from both Malaysia and Singapore, drivers shown no mercy on their throttle as they kept attacking and pushing hard on their rides, hoping to secure a podium moment for the categories which they have signed up for.

The hottest battle of all categories, the Open Category offered a cash prize of RM$1,000 for the champion. Guess what? This event had also attracted a handful of lady drivers to take part as well and… don’t say we didn’t warn you, that their timings were almost on par with some of the guys!

With a narrow lead of 0:55 split-sec from Malaysia’s pioneer driver, Mr Dzamir Shah, Shane Ang had managed to grab the Championship title for Forca Cup Open Category (1:03:35). The timing also won him cash prizes of RM1,000, he also bagged the ‘Fastest Timing of the Day’ award as well. Well done!

Other than Shane, Sen Koh (Toyota GT86) and Chase Lim (Suzuki Swift Sport) have also came in 1st Runner Up in Rear Wheel Drive Open Category and 1,600cc naturally aspirated (NA) Category respectively. The luckiest additional award which made Chase a happy man was that he also managed to bag the Cash prizes of RM150 in his category. Well…. Should be enough to cover his “makan” stuff in Malacca!

Anyone keen to take part in the Malaysian races? Generation X Time Attack Round 4 will still be held in Melaka International Motorsport Circuit and it would be held on 10 Dec 2017. Do contact Project SG Racing Crew if you are keen to join them for the northern race!
