Who are we?
We are known as the Asian Endurance Series, in this case, the Asian e-Endurance Series for all Simulation racing events. https://www.facebook.com/asianenduranceseries
What have we done?
• In 2019, the Asian Endurance Series, ran what was arguably the regions most successful corporate Karting Endurance Championship.
• It attracted participants from not only varied occupational backgrounds and motorsports experiences, but it quickly evolved into a regional series with racers from Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau, China and even Australia.
• Ran over 5 races of 3 hours each, the series visited 3 different tracks of our partners, the X Park group in Malaysia.
• Notable race car drivers like Dominic Ang (ex-Team Petronas GT), Leona Chin, Natasha Seatter, were among the list of competitors. The winning team consisted of upcoming, young sim racers.
What are we going to do?
For 2020, plans were afloat to run an expanded Asian Endurance Series, this time with 6 rounds culminating with a 12hr season finale to be held at X Park Iskander in Johor. Alas, the pandemic has pulled the handbrake on us and pretty much any racing series across the board. Fingers crossed AES will be back stronger in 2021!
The one positive outcome from this pandemic, is it has accelerated our plans of establishing our presence in the virtual racing world.
We are therefore pleased to announce our very own online racing championship, the Asian e-Endurance Series.
The race format is:
Qualifying: 10 minutes
Race 1: 10 minutes
Race 2: 30 minutes
Race 3: 30 minutes
Race 1 grid is decided by Qualifying results.
Race 2 grid is reverse grid of Race 1 results.
Race 3 grid is reverse grid of Race 2 results.
As you can see, we are set up for maximum racing action for both the participants and spectators. Not only to be fast, drivers need to have a good grasp of race craft to be overtaking or defending their position. In place are also very strict penalties towards unsporting driving with experienced race stewards at the helm.
The biggest highlight is we are giving out prize MONEY!!! Besides merchandise, prize money is on offer, but not in a traditional way of a fixed amount for a podium place. We are giving out SGD$1 for every championship point scored, therefore the TOP 10 championship points scoring Drivers can potentially walk away with CASH at the end of the season.
Where are we going?
Eventually, we would like to be the best, most exciting and rewarding online racing platform for the competitors, the viewers and last but not least, all the sponsors.
We would also love for the most promising sim racers to be able to transfer their skill sets into the real world of motorsports.
