The Street ShootOut series continues with 3dot5 all the way up north in Batu Kawan, Penang. The SSO, as usual will feature the popular Drift and Time Attack events. What a way to celebrate Merdeka – tyre smoke, petrol fumes and R3 Speed Chicks! The SSO 3dot5 will also be held together with a Putera Drag Battle on the same weekend, so triple yay for grassroots motorsports this weekend!
With my modded Stage 2-powered Satria R3, I am looking at a strong showing this time round, having just missed out on points in series 2dot5. I’ve dropped from 5th in Championship standings to 8th, therefore determined to finish at least in the Top 5 to score some valueable points. Stanley, partner-in-crime, currently lies 5th (dropped from 2nd).
For the first time ever, I will be officially bearing the Race, Rally, Research (R3) brand, as a sponsored driver. R3 recently offered sponsorship in support of my SSO campaign for the year, up till 2006. Acting as a marketing tool for R3 is indeed an honour, and in gratitude, I am committed to doing well in the series.
Podium finish? Very possible. Wish me luck, people!
