A self-professed fan of cars and motorsports for as long as his memory permits, Malaysian Wing Hoong Chia is a true-blue petrolhead with racing embedded deep within his cerebral cortex! It is not difficult to discover and discern the reasons behind his involvement in motorsport. Though self-motivated, the young Malaysian credits his ex-racer father, adding, “my dad played quite a big part in influencing my racing career.”

With an illustrious record in the go-kart scene, both at home and abroad, Wing is no stranger to life in the fast lane in all its permutations, having had the opportunity to compete at the Sepang 12 Hours race in the touring production class. An indication as to his future racing career inclinations, Wing states his ultimate racing ambition as, “being a paid professional racing driver in GT cars or prototypes, hopefully with a works team.”

The next step on the racing ladder from go-karts into single-seater formula racing is the Formula 4 South East Asia Championship which Wing see as “a great development series for young drivers and a great way to start a racing career.”
