Today we would like to post about the Proton Axle Racing which was established by our first Formula One driver Alex Yoong.Alex Yoong who is the team principle of the Proton Axle Racing and Chief Executive of the Axle Motorsport has put together a dynamic team of drivers who look set to take the event with the flying colours.The commercial partners for the Proton Axle Racing are Plus Expressways Berhad and also Proton.The support from them has allowed the team to compete at a high level.
Proton Axle Racing was created to compete in the Asian Touring Car Super 1500Max Challenge. For the uninitiated, the 1500Max is a competition for normally aspirated cars below 1599cc. It is a professional and open championship with a variety of different manufacturers competing. We race in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and China.
The organisers stated that the regulations ensure equality between the different makes while a strict power to weight ratio has been worked out, so that all cars will have an equal chance of winning. This will ensure that nobody can gain an advantage and will keep the action close and exciting.

PODIUM FINISHES FOR AXLE MOTORSPORT IN FIRST RACES OF THE SEASON.
It wasn’t quite the perfect start to the new season of the Asian Festival Of Speed Asian Touring Car Max for Axle Motorsport in Sentul, Indonesia today, but considering the mechanical problems experienced by both of the Axle cars in Qualifying, it was an excellent team effort to get one car out of the pits and into the race for Shafiq Ali to take 2nd place in both the morning and afternoon races.

The youngster, who was trailing teammate Fadzil Alang going into today’s final two races, finished second in Round 11 to clinch the overall title but his joy at winning the title was soured when Faidzil was involved in an accident which saw his car roll over three times.
