Team 1Malaysia FXPRIMUS Aylezo Takes the Chequered Flag in Second Place at the First Gulf 12 Hours Endurance Race at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi

YAS MARINA CIRCUIT, ABU DHABI--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2012) - It was an historical day in Abu Dhabi today as Team 1Malaysia FXPRIMUS Aylezo came in at second place at the Yas Marina circuit. After half a day of wheel to wheel racing, the team deservingly took the chequered flag at the first ever Gulf 12 Hours endurance race.

Having qualified in second place as well, the team was dealt with a blow as they had to start from the back of the grid. This was due to an engine replacement as the older unit simply could not handle the stress of endurance racing.

The most experienced driver of the team, Jazeman Jaafar was tasked with starting the race against 24 other competitors. It was however not entirely smooth sailing as the effects of endurance racing took its toll on the car. Apart from tyres and brakes, some mechanical parts required replacing as well, effectively forcing the team to take extended pit stops up to an hour long at one point.

The prolonged pit stops forced the team to drop a few positions but the drivers and the crew put in a fantastic combined effort, ensuring that mechanical failures were kept down to a minimum and stops for fuel, tyres and driver change took no longer than three minutes.

At the restart after six hours of racing, the Team's Lotus 2-Eleven race car had a minor electrical problem that forced it to stall in the middle of the circuit. Circuit marshals towed it back to the pits and in a matter of minutes the problem was rectified and the car was back in the race again.

British Formula 3 racer and team driver Jazeman Jaafar again put in a dominant display of speed and control to regain the time lost in the pits. He was soon lapping five seconds quicker than the fastest car in the class and by the time he handed over the car to the team's youngest driver, the 18 year old Hiqmar Danial, Jazeman had regained about five laps that were lost during the pit stop.

The cool weather of the night provided ideal conditions; it was smooth racing with all both drivers showing their class and the team putting in an excellent show of supremacy in the pits. A few hours later, FXPRIMUS was handed its first ever chequered flag in a world class endurance race.

Terry Thompson, President of FXPRIMUS was understandably ecstatic, "It was a brilliant race. We were all kept at the edge of our seats when the car needed some repairs but by nightfall we had our finger crossed lap after lap. I did expect us to finish the race, but to be honest I never expected us to take second place. This is an absolutely fantastic result for the team and for FXPRIMUS, a great start to 2012 even."

Team owner Zen Low was also overjoyed, "I can't express how glad I am, it was a difficult race, we had to nurse the car, but thankfully everything set in perfectly. I want to thank FXPRIMUS for believing in us and making this happen."
