Naquib Azlan Crowned eRacing Global Edition Champion

Ever-tenacious Malaysian, Naquib Azlan was crowned as the champion in the fifth edition of the eRacing GP Global Edition championship. The 20-year-old held off a fierce challenge by Australia’s Josh Purwein to claim the title for the first time after being runner up in the previous four Global Editions. 

Despite starting from the rear of the race, Naquib burned virtual rubber to gradually inch his way to victory and hold off Josh Purwein in the standings by just 7 points after a 10-race season.

The clash proved costly in the “reverse grid” second race when Purwein, not taking chances, shot to the lead and left Naquib trailing eighth in the early stages of the race. However, Naquib held steady and kept his nerve to come home in third behind Purwein which was enough to see him clinch the title at the Zandvoort circuit.

After the race, Naquib Azlan said:

“Wow, that was so tough especially after losing the last Global Edition by only one point.

I knew that today, with me being on top coming into the final round, having never won it before, I wanted to do it no matter what, so I tried my best and it worked out.”

As the dust settled on an exciting racing season, confirmed his position as champion of the Gold Class category with 142 points followed by Australia’s Josh Purwein 135 points and Singapore’s Muhammad Thasbeeh on 109 points.

In other categories, Nur Shazliezhan from Singapore won the Silver class, Philippines’s Francis Angelo Gonzales emerged champion of the Bronze class and Malaysia’s Kelvin Pao topped the Copper class. In terms of the Teams Cup category, Stratos Motorsports were crowned as the champions with 427 points followed by Tedco X Project Mu Racing 328 points, and Sim Racing Pilipinas 268 points.

Axle Sports founder Alex Yoong said:

“It was a long time coming for Naquib who has proven to be one of Malaysia’s best drivers, and not only in the sim world.

He was recently signed up by Toyota for their rookie programme and he won both races in the opening round at Sepang.

So, he is a real talent for the future.

We hope to attract more new racing talent next season which will in turn drive our viewership numbers in the upcoming eRacing GP Global Edition 6.”

The culmination of the fifth and final round saw Malaysia emerge champions of the Nations Cup for the second consecutive time with 695 points followed by Singapore with 487 points and Philippines with 471 points.
