Bashir & Hakeem Overall SBS EP ML Champions
With our country facing heavy haze, it did not stop us from running the final round of SBS 1/10 EP Malaysian Major League 2019 over the last weekend at SBS Speedway in Sg Buloh, Malaysia. Albeit a lower turnout than usual, competition remained stiff as ever with the country's fastest drivers making their appearance this round, including 1/8 GT IFMAR World Champion, Jade Lim.
In 2wd Modified Buggy, Bashir (Team Associated) did not show any signs of slowing down knowing that he already had more than enough lead in the points to be crowned the overall champion. It was a strong fight between him and Jade (Team Associated) in all 3 finals but Jade managed to win the first 2 mains to grab 1st place. Bashir finished 2nd and Aaron (Xray) bagged 3rd overall.
Meanwhile in 4wd Modified Buggy it was a tough fight between 4 drivers all the way to the 3rd main. Jade (Team Associated) and Bashir (Team Associated) headed into the 3rd main with a win each but Shahrin (Xray) and Kent Sung (Tekno) both had a 2nd place each putting them in the run for the win as well. After a tough A3 battle, it was the World Champion who emerged the winner of the round. Kent Sung snatched 2nd place and Bashir in 3rd.
Most importantly it was also the time we announced the Overall Champions of SBS 1/10 EP Malaysian Major League 2019 after 5 gruelling rounds of racing (Driver points attached at the end of this article):
