TAN MAKES COMEBACK FOR 2022 SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX
Veteran Singaporean driver, Yuey Tan, is back with The Super Series for his 12th visit to the Marina Bay Circuit in 2022.
“It is absolutely fantastic to be back at this legendary circuit at Singapore’s biggest sporting event,” said the Singaporean. “During 2020 and 2021, and even during the beginning of 2022, many of us in motorsport had no idea if we would be back or not. Though here we are!!”
Tan will be hitting the streets for the 2022 edition of the Singaporean Grand Prix behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 R, battling against multiple manufactures including Audi, Aston Martin, McLaren, Mercedes and Ferrari.
“Of course I wanted to come back to have another shot at the Marina Bay Circuit,” continued Tan. “And it could’ve been in any car, though for sure I am super stoked that it is in a Porsche once again. It makes twelve race weekends at the Grand Prix for me and twelve races behind the wheel of a Porsche!”
The Super Series, lead by ex-racing driver and experienced race series organizer, Preeda Tantemsapya, will make its debut on Singaporean streets after the series made its name over the last fifteen years in Thailand with the iconic Bangsaen Street Circuit that had over 350,000 live attendance in 2022.
Tan has previously raced eleven race weekends at the Singapore Grand Prix with the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, finishing on the podium in all but three weekends in the Pro Am category, with two victories as well, his last victory coming in 2018. 2019 saw a disastrous weekend, finishing outside of the podium in race 1 and not making it past the first turn in race 2.
With the way things ended in 2019, Tan made it no secret that it was his wish to come back and have a chance to set the record straight.
“It has been a long few years during Covid. Its impacted us all. As a Singaporean, I am very happy that the Singapore Grand Prix is back, the racing fans have something to cheer about, and our largest sporting event in this country is back on the calendar!”
Yuey Tan, 40, will enter under the team name, SLK Racing, with the primary sponsor being Singaporean veteran logistics firm, SLK Logistics. Alongside the all Singaporean new look racing team, will be Vietnamese Car Dealership K-Supper, Singaporean brewery Brewlander, Camera manufacturer Leica Cameras, Oakley Sunglasses and Fearnley LNG.
Tan hits the circuit on September 30th for Practice and Qualifying, and Race 1 on October 1st and Race 2 on October 2nd.
