SLK Racing and Yuey Tan Team Up with Absolute Racing to Tackle Singapore GP

SLK Racing and Yuey Tan Team Up with Absolute Racing to Tackle Singapore GP

31.08.2022: Absolute Racing is pleased to announce that will enter the SLK Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R with Singaporean race driver Yuey Tan in the two ďTSS Thailand Super Series racesĒ in support of the blue riband Singapore F1 Grand Prix.


Absolute Racing is pleased to announce that will enter the SLK Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R with Singaporean race driver Yuey Tan in the two “TSS Thailand Super Series races” in support of the blue riband Singapore F1 Grand Prix.





Founded in 1978, SLK Logistics (SLK) has established itself to be one of the leading logistics companies in Singapore.  With more than 40 years of experience in the field, it offers advanced customer-specific solutions through their comprehensive services like global shipping, specialized warehousing or cold storage.




With an enormous passion for motorsports, SLK has enlisted Singaporean racing champion Yuey Tan to field their quest for the coveted spot on the Marina Bay podium at the upcoming “TSS Thailand Super Series” race for GT cars.




High end luxury supercar dealership, K-Supper is also joining the SLK Racing in a major partnership with the Singaporean racing team. K-Supper is a leading brand specializing in the business of imported supercars in Vietnam, founded by businessman Phan Cong Khanh in early 2020 - a talented former volleyball player. Catching the consumer trends in Vietnam as well as all over the world, K-Supper company regularly imports to Viet Nam all the latest models on the market,  which are known as high value of collectible.



The opportunity to come to this luxury product line business started from the endless passion for speed of the businessman Phan Cong Khanh, more specifically the sport of motorsport. That is also the reason why K-Supper is very happy to be able to become a companion for domestic motor races, or even represent Vietnam participate in professional and international races, typically "The Super Series" Singapore Grand Prix 2022.




40-year-old Singaporean native is making his motorsport return after two-year hiatus due to the pandemic with the support of SLK, Brewlander, K-Supper, Leica Store Singapore, Oakley Singapore, Top93 and Fearnley LNG. Tan had the chance to tackle the Marina Bay circuit for 12th occasions. He won two Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Pro-Am class races and finished seventh times in the podium, but this will be his first appearance in the event with a GT3 class car.




After a successful test session at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, Tan will drive a Porsche 911 GT3 R run by the Asian powerhouse Absolute Racing. Ranking one step up Carrera Cup Asia in the Porsche Motorsport pyramid, the 911 GT3 R was designed by Porsche for worldwide GT3 series.  Powering the 911 GT3 R is a cutting-edge four-litre flat-six unit which is largely identical to the high-performance production engine of the road-legal 911 GT3 RS.




Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, Thailand Super Series (TSS) is the biggest domestic racing series in Thailand and one of the biggest national GT series in the region. The series, which is racing in Singapore for the first time, features an exciting mix of GT3, GT4 and GTM supercars.




While track experience counts for much when it comes to street circuits, navigating the ferocious GT cars between the unforgiving Armco barriers of this technical track will still be a mighty challenge for any skilled race driver.



For some, the weekend will be a return to the scene of triumph and disappointment, for others it will represent a thrilling new challenge, but for all, the Singapore Grand Prix weekend will be a dazzling showcase of glamorous, high-octane enjoyment.




The 30 minute qualifying session for the Thailand Super Series is scheduled for Friday, September 30, with the first race on Saturday, October 1, and the second race on Sunday,  October 2, just prior to the start of the Grand Prix.





TEAM QUOTES:
 


Yuey Tan (SLK Racing Driver):
"It's absolutely fantastic to be back behind the wheel of a race car. I did my first test with Absolute Racing and the SLK Racing car just a few weeks ago. It was nice to know I haven't lost too much speed though obviously, there are still gains to be made.


I am super stoked to be back with a professional outfit like Absolute Racing. My aim for this Grand Prix is to come back and enjoy myself and remember all the things we love about motor racing after the Covid time. We would like a podium, but I know there are many great drivers in the series that have already been racing so they have shaken the rust off.



Given said that, we have experience in Singapore and hopefully being the homeboy will give me that extra motivation to do well here! Let's see. Happy to be back!”




Soh Gim Hoe (CEO of SLK Logistics):
“It has always been our dream at SLK Logistics to engage in a partnership with a racing team. We watch both Formula 1 and GT cars for decades since the 90’s and truly understand how speed, precision and reliability contributes to the overall success of a team. This is second nature to us in our line of work and the opportunity to be a part of Yuey’s campaign to race again at the Singapore Grand Prix after a two-year absence was an easy decision.



The synergy and experiences we shared while getting prepared for the race will forever be etched on our memories. It will be a historic day for SLK when we register our team’s name on August 29th! How often does a Singaporean company get to back a Singaporean racing driver in the Singapore Grand Prix? It is truly is a perfect way to make our debut in motor racing.“




Phan Cong Khanh (Founder and Owner of K-Supper): “
We are excited to partner with Yuey at his home Grand Prix! Being the largest supercar dealership in Vietnam, it’s a partnership that makes sense for us as we find it a natural progression to get into the international racing space and Yuey has been well known for well over a decade for a lot of his racing and marketing alike!”




Ingo Matter (Team Director of Absolute Racing):
"We're thrilled to welcome SLK Racing and Yuey to the team. Yuey is well-known to us from our Carrera Cup Asia campaigns, and it is a joy to have him race one of our cars in Singapore.

This is one of the season's most important events, and one that we missed in Asia during the pandemic years. GT cars will provide fantastic entertainment for motorsport fans, and we are convinced that with Yuey and his track knowledge, we will be able to compete for a podium position.”
