Yuey Tan is a Singaporean racing driver that has been a series regular in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia for the last decade, making 149 International race starts in a Porsche, finishing on the podium 79 times, with 8 victories and 1 Championship title in the Pro Am category in 2015. During this time, he competed in 28 Formula 1 support races, 4 World Endurance Championship weekends and a support race appearance to the Le Mans championship in Spa-Francorchamps.

Tan has developed a strong following around the region and has worked with high value companies both in the industrial and consumer sector including Porsche, Jebsen Motors, Leica, Under Armour, Fearnley LNG, Porsche Design, and many more during his racing career, making him no stranger to the corporate world.

His dream was born growing up in Adelaide Australia, the location of the Formula 1 season finale from 1985 to 1995 where he saw of the legends crowned world champion including Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, and Michael Schumacher. From there, always knew he wanted to go motor racing. Unfortunately, motor racing is something that needs to start with family support and he did not have that.

Hailing from a strong property development background with a 50 year history in office and residential development in Singapore, he defied the odds and chased his dream of driving a racing car making his first Porsche race start at the age of 26 years of age with very little support.

From 2008 to mid 2012, Tan had not had a single victory to his name and also had not finished on the podium between 2010 to mid 2012. Though everything changed in 2012, taking his first victory and then following up with 3 podium finishes. Coincidentally, 2012 was the year that Tan landed his first major sponsor with a major private equity firm and continued to work with them till 2014.

2015 saw him join one of Porsche Carrera Cup Asia’s most formidable teams with Team Jebsen, the largest distributor of Porsche cars in the world and raced with them from 2015 to 2017, clocking up 27 podiums, 8 wins and a championship title in Pro-Am, by far his most successful spell.

2018 saw Tan capture one of his most lucrative deals yet, as he competed in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in Europe (dubbed “the Champion’s League of Porsche Motorsport”), racing with the NOVU Racing Team, Visiting some of the most famous racing locations in the world including Monte Carlo, Monza, Spa Francorchamps and Silverstone. Though he also wishes to continue to compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia after joining his old series for pre-season testing. He hopes to join the Asian series once again with his only aim to win as many races as possible in the Pro Am category along with the championship title.

Join us as Tan starts his 12th consecutive season in a Porsche racing car.
