1) Why the chosen ride?
I was deciding between the BMW E92 M3 and the Alfa Romeo Brera 3.2 V6 before setting my mind on the Alfa Romeo Brera. I have always been a fan on the aesthetics of the Alfa Romeo. It is fierce, wild and you will never get bored over its looks!
Dad owns a BMW E60 M5, which made me decided to try out another marque.
2) A brief on yourself and your outlook in life, family, career
I hold an Accounts Executive position in a U.S. MNC, focusing on Telecom software solutions. Besides my day job, I run a tyre business together with my parents.
My passion in motorsports started when I was 5-6 years old. Back then, I was brought to Kallang Car Park Rally where my father took part in car races. In the eyes of the majority, Dads are usually the key influence when it comes to motorsports. Mine was no exception though it was really my Mom, who encouraged and licensed me to pursue my passion in motorsports. From then on, I never once looked back.
On a regular basis, I would be involved with car-related activities such as tracking, go-karting, breakfast meets, road-trips to Malaysia and social gatherings with like-minded friends.
Sadly, I will be missing from the car scene soon to serve National Service
3) What do you think of our local car scene?
I’ve been a member of SCCS since the year it was established.
As a member, I’ve made a lot of friends and picked up valuable knowledge from the people in the club. With launches and meets running frequently, the local car scenes are still pretty active.
However, it’ll help the local car scene if we have more motorsport events other than the annual Formula 1 race.
4) How did you come to hear of SCCS?
Previously, I was a member of the BMW.SG and VAGSG group.
Through one of the meetups organised by BMW.SG, I met Alvin.
He told me about SCCS and I decided to join the group to meet more like-minded friends.
Prior to SCCS, I was with VAGSG when I had the Volkswagen Scirocco R.
