GAS Gymkhana Series 2017 Round 1: Pay back time!

Gymkhana Autocross Series or better known as GAS, had a roaring start for the first round of its series this year, where a total of over 23 slots were taken to fiercely contested in their respective categories in this 2 course event!

This event also serves as a sweet pay back for the Singaporean participants, whom made their way to the Kelang Valley to successfully contest in all the categories and made a healthy haul of trophies to bring back home!

This was the usual practice for the Malaysians ; where we would track to our neighboring country  and compete fairly successfully however with  Gymkhana racers that Singapore are developing , I would not such a cake walk anymore!This event also saw new faces like Lucas, driving a borrowed car which eventually giving him top spot in the Rear wheel drive road legal category!Last years Front Wheel Drive Road Legal and Pro overall Champion , Abdul Halim , piloting his ever successful Myvi managed to fend of Singaporean Chase Lim for top spot of both categories by the skin off his teeth. Both were seen observing each other times and only made their runs only after having theirs beaten! Chase Lim is a veteran in motorsports scene in Singapore and has vowed to compete in all 5 series this year!Though the numbers of participants in the AWD category were small, Sylvester did show his dominance by exhibiting smooth runs and were able to post a blistering time  which our local boys will find it hard to beat!

This event also had Malaysia’s drifters competing in the Rear Wheel Drive Pro category! Ah Seng, Sky Ho and Sam Jong a familiar name in the drift scene competed in their drift cars but struggled  to match the times of the other rear wheel drive cars which were mainly set up for this genre of motorsport! However Sky Ho managed to clinch 3rd stop for this round!This round also had last year’s Ladies overall champion competing in the Front wheel Drive Pro category which she managed to secure 3rd place with her precise runs! The Rear wheel drive Road Legal category had Singapore’s James Lee taking first!

Followed by Jeremy low also from Singapore in secondAnd Alvin Tan in third!Champion for the Open category and also posting the fastest time of the day goes to Mickey Teoh! Piloting the late Ben Lim’s MR-S , Mickey  impressively managed to post a time 2 seconds faster than his competitor with just a handful of runs and opt to sit out of the rest!

GAS Gymkhana Series 2016


GAS , which is the abreviation for Gymkhana Autocross Series, started on 2013 in conjunction with the launching of the GT Radial Champiro SX 2 in Sepang. A one day event which saw 30 participants competing in this inaugural event. With the glut of other gymkhana events following its wake that year, the management decided to take a hiatus and diverted it’s effort to more private gymkhana events mainly for car clubs. However, with the frequency of Gymkhana event dwindling the following year to the point where there were not a single event in the year 2014. Sync Optima had decided to take the helm and try to revive the sport in 2015 by running three events which proved to be successful. The formula of a self funded event , amongst the tight knit of competitors proved to be the way to go in these trying times. So much so that in 2016 , it was decided to run a 5 series competition which will end on the 18th Dec 2016!
