The Adrenaline Impact iRacing Malaysia Championship came back on air with a bang at the legendary Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst, with the new Kia Optima and plenty of thrills and spills! Quick rookies and the new guard of drivers came to the fore as we saw newcomers Tengku Djan Ley and James Russell transfer from the real world of motorsports and bring serious pace into the 375hp FWD touring cars, while Lloyd Laughlin and Mycil Hafez had new found pace at the front of the field. But some things never change, and Kelvinder Singh led the field in the same style he had in the previous season. However, with a record 3 safety car deployments, the whole field was thrown into chaos, and in the end, several drivers failed to take their mandatory pitstop! In the end, it took a team of expert stewards to determine the result, with Rueben Wong of Team URT Pink taking home the top prize! After a dramatic season opener, who knows what will happen at the next round in Silverstone? There’s only one way to find out at the next round of AIMC!

After an amazing season of wheel to wheel racing, the Adrenaline Impact iRacing Malaysia Championship came to a dramatic conclusion in the Charlotte Roval. Round 6 saw interesting battles up and down the field, along with a dramatic finale to the championship. Ahmad Noorazam of the Autohaus FCR Performance team headed into the final race with the championship lead, only needing to finish in 8th or higher, while Syaiful Ariffin needed second and Kelvinder Singh needing to pull out all the stops and win with the others faltering. Coming into the last lap after a strategic battle, Ahmad had an accident at the final corner, handing the championship to Syaiful, who came short in his challenge for the win with Kelvinder. In the end, Season 1 sees Syaiful Arrifin as the Driver’s Champion, and Autohaus FCR Performance clinching the Team’s Championship.

Round 5 of the AIMC took place at the historic Summit Point Raceway, located in the eastern United States.

The race lead and the championship lead changed several times during the race, with Syaiful Ariffin and Ahmad Farid Yan colliding after brake sim faliure, Ahmad Noorazam dropping back in the field and Nigel Chuah running out of fuel! In the end, after no less than 6 lead changes with 6 seperate drivers, Afizul Jai came out on top of a chaotic race, followed by Jayzreen Jali and Tengku Ezan Ley.

Join us at round 5 in Summit Point Raceway for more breathtaking action.
Round three of AIMC was held in the picturesque countryside of rural Connecticut, on the historic Lime Rock Park GP course. The fast and flowing nature brought out some fantastic battles and more than a few agressive moves, which gave the early leaders a tough time negotiating traffic. Syaiful Arrifin lead for the majority of the race, but fuel strategy once again came into the picture with Ilham Halabi taking the win, as well as the distinction of being the only driver to avoid having to pit! 2nd place went to Syaiful Ariffin followed by Kelvinder Singh in 3rd, with Autohaus FCR in a commanding position in the teams championship. Tune in to Adrenaline Impact for round 4 at the classic Laguna Seca for more action!
Round two of the AIMC featured the heavy braking zones of Okayama, which saw a hectic first lap that saw Mycil Hafez upside down and drivers battling to avoid the chaos! In the end however, the battle between Syaiful and Amir Farid Yan ended with a collision with a backmarker, leading to a fortuitus win for Ilham Halabi, followed by Kelvinder Singh in 2nd and Ahmad Noorazam in 3rd.
