"The team gave great support and good advice prepping the car well on the site after the first practice session, Edgar made a helpful final adjustment based on my feedback”, said Ng. "This is the first time I am driving the Hankook Z206 slicks and there are a lot of unpredictable responses from the current setup with the Honda S2000. I managed to set up a 2nd fast lap time during the qualifying session and placed 2nd on the starting lineup.”
