Well renowned Singapore based tuning shop Choon’s Motor Works have confirmed they will be entering a two car team at WTAC, a 700hp Pro Am Mazda RX7 and a 500hp Open Class Honda DC5 Integra.
The RX7 will be driven by team principle Eddie Ng and features a full fresh build ready to compete on an international level. “We have a fresh Petit Racing 13B from USA with a GT40 Garrett turbo backed by a TTI sequential 6 speed transmission, and all the bodykit was built in house by my father. It has all come together really well!” said Eddie “It was a long road but we are now on the water and on the way to Sydney”
The Honda has been built to Open Class spec and features a “built 2 litre with around 480hp at the wheels and a 6 speed dog engagement gearbox” and will be driven by long time Choon’s Motor Works client, friend and experienced racer Gerald Goh. “Gerald will certainly be an asset to our team” said Eddie “He is actually a watch trader with shops in Singapore and Hong Kong but has a lot of race experience and when we told him of our intention to race at WTAC he was committed 100%”
Both cars feature a full catalogue of top line parts including AP Racing brake packages, 3 way adjustable Mitin coilover suspension and ORC clutches. “Both of these cars are built as a showcase for our workshops ability to produce track oriented vehicles.” said Eddie “Whatever we use in our own cars are the same parts we fit to customer vehicles and the big news is we are planning on expanding our business into Australia. This is the first step to gain some recognition before we make our official entry into the Australian market.”
“This really is a fantastic news that the Choon’s Racing team are heading our way.” said Superlap CEO Ian Baker “It really does solidify our position as a true world event with teams arriving once again from all corners of the globe. To date Asia has primarily represented by Japan but now we have Singapore joining the fold. It will certainly bring a whole lot more interest and variety from the Asian region.”
