Eurasia guest driver, Dan Cammish, improved his pace with each of the four races held at the Sepang F1 Circuit in Malaysia, just missing out on three podium finishes in the incident packed races. Team mates Aaron Chang and Natasha Seatter were in the thick of the action and had their own private battle in all four races.

Race one saw Cammish slot into third place after a close battle with Irfan Ilyas. He had opened a good gap with a lap to go when Nabil Jeffri slowed with a mechanical problem and managed to block Cammish allowing his team mate, Ilyas, by into third robbing Cammish of a debut podium. Aaron Chang did well to finish 9th from last on the grid after qualifying problems whilst Natasha Seatter went one place better after a strong drive.

Race two ended in disaster for Aaron Chang on lap two when he ran into the back of team mate Natasha Seatter at turn nine. This put him out of the race whilst Natasha did well to finish 10th with a bent rear wing. Cammish was again in the battle for third place but was forced off the road during the battle with the Petronas duo, Jeffri and Ilyas. He eventually finished a disappointed 6th.

Aaron Chang finished race three a mere .625 of a second in front of Natasha Seatter after a race long battle whilst Cammish was fifth after another close battle with Jeffri and Ilyas. Cammish lost several places at the start of race four but was soon up to fourth place closing on the leaders, at one point almost within striking distance of newly crowned champion, Lucas Auer. However Ilyas lunged past and whilst they battled it allowed Auer to get away. Once clear of Ilyas, Cammish pulled away to finish fourth. Aaron Chang again finished in front of Natasha Seatter, this time by .694 of a second!

“Dan demonstrated the car is on the pace, he was improving every time out after only a wet test session, one dry practice and qualifying before the race. He did a good job having never driven the car or circuit before and he was racing against drivers who have had hundreds of laps around Sepang” remarked Eurasia’s Mark Goddard. “Aaron did a great job, getting quicker with each race whilst Natasha again proved she is real racer”.
