The F1 Auto Cars Racing Team has put together an exciting driver line up in a bid for victory at Singapore's largest kart endurance race of the year. Lead by one of Singapore's most successful International GT drivers of all time, Yuey Tan, who has raced in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, Porsche Carrera Cup France, and the GT3 Cup Challenge in Australia conceptualised the idea to enter a team about 11 months ago and started laying the ground work for a good chassis/ engine combination as well as a strong driver line up.

Singaporean Racing driver and Karting Arena circuit owner Yuey Tan said, "I am seriously stoked to be entering this race with our exciting driver line up with my wife Claire Jedrek, along with Andrew Tang, Alex Brown, Pavan Ravishankar and Sean Hudspeth. To put an all Singaporean driver line up with two fantastic Singaporean sponsors is a dream come true for us as we are all good mates. Victory will be the goal though we are here for a bit of fun outside of our racing careers to come back to where it all began for all of us! In karting!'
Claire Jedrek, Singapore's fastest woman, started in karts and then trained in single seater Formula Renaults with ART Motorsports, before entering the Malaysian Championship Series for three full seasons with R Engineering, scoring three podium finishes during her time in the series.
Andrew Tang, Alex Brown, Pavan Ravishankar and Sean Hudspeth all grew up karting and were all star performers in their individual age groups.
Tang went on to win the prestigious TRS Title in New Zealand amongst some of the worlds best junior drivers, also being selected for the McLaren Formula 1 young drivers programme. Tang also won the Porsche Junior Scholarship Programme and raced in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia for two seasons, taking race victory and multiple podium finishes.
Brown has recently competed in car racing including the Malaysian Championship Series where he has shown serious pace with a podium finish, as well as being a multiple karting champion in Singapore, and Internationally as well.
Pavan Ravishankar just finished two seasons in the famous British Formula 3 Series with podium finishes, and before that with Asian Formula Renault and will look to graduate to the Euro Formula Open in 2020 after a successful career in karting developed in Singapore.

An endurance race of this magnitude requires massive performance, focus, precision and reliability, things that we also take very seriously at F1 Auto Cars. With a host of generations of Singapore’s International driving elite, we hope to achieve success in this highly anticipated event! I know most of our drivers haven’t karted in quite sometime but with their ensemble of experience and achievements across the globe, it should make for an interesting race!”
