Its game over for 2009!!! GRA..

The Grass Racing Autosport series had marked its closing of its calendar of championship events of 4 rounds this year. In the Pro- Grass Class Categories had seen Andy Kow bag the overall award scoring full point in the first two rounds and was behind in last next two rounds. It was a tremendous championship this year as the challenges were though and that many skilled drivers were on the pitch of the championship to give the very best challenges to the others and mostly to themselves, yeah, time attack events is more of challenging yourself than competing with other rivals.
It was a nice observation to the pro grass class championship this year as Ee Yoong Cherng gave a massive pressures to the other GRA regulars. Not only him, but William Lim was also in this spotlight of Malaysian Motorsports Tv analysis, for a guy driving a Suzuki Swift (A) but was giving it a full clean swipe off the time that manages him to be in the 5th placing overall. Very impressive the fact that William Lim is driving an auto transmission car but then clocked around other competitors which were driving Japanese tuned up cars and engines such as Jason Foo & Julian Pang with their Mivec engine, Andy Kow in Subaru Impreza, Ee Yoong Cherng & Ariff Johanis which thir cars easily has 200 horsepowers above .
When one of our crews talked to William Lim, he said that it was more of having the right line and apex, and other advantages may include the car setup –more anti roll bars to lessen the time loss and getting the grip at every intersection corners and moreover the hatchback swift gives advantages in ntering the slalom and also, the fact the machine he’s on is an automatic, gives him mor focus and attention to precision driving without much using his left food and shifting gears like the rest .William Lim, had thus justified that precision, and skills matters and it aint solely on what you’re riding. Like I used to quote ‘it aint what you ride but how you ride the machine that matters’ with a british accent though..hehe.
The challenges were also interesting to see that Ee Yoong Cherng gave it a blast to Andy Kow in the last 2 events. He was 1st in the third round and 2nd in the round 4. The way I see it, it’s a good ego booster for all the challengers and a healthy spirit of competition . This is where the competitors can gain an insight to their art of driving and sharing thought bout the car setup, and art of driving.
Andy Despite driving his Subaru Impreza may also benefit with his 4wd but some other factors that might restricted him from our point of view is the engine under his hoods aren’t an Sti engine. Which might give others the advantages. And as at round 4(the final round) hld in Putrajaya, William Lim was 3rd ahead of him on 4th placing which again might be due to the factor of tight slalom and advantages to William Lim on his hatchback ‘Weapon-X’ .But then again , Julian Pang was first and secong was Ee Yoong Cherng so, it aint much about the car size factor here.
Julian Pang, in his white Proton Wira manages to close the placing on 3rd of the overall championship. Ee Yoong Cherng absence in the 2nd round gives way to Julian to collect the championship point and there he was, effort and lucky to have the latter absence in the 2nd round. If we minus his points in the 2nd round of the championship , totalling it all up from round 1, round 3, and round 4 points and comparing it with Ee Yoong Cherng, his points are only 17 points compared to Ee Yoong Cherng of 25 points. A massive gap there of 8marginal points .
Some comparison to the top 5 of Prograss overall championship point with condition all running equal without 2nd round points (Ee Yoong Cherng didn’t compete in 2nd round) it would be as follows:

No. Name CarMake/Model R109 R309 R409 Overall Points

1. Andy Kow S.Impreza 10 9 7 26

2. Ee Yoong Cherng N. Silvia 6 10 9 25

3 Jason Foo P.Satria 7 6 10 23

4. Julian Pang P.Wira 1.8 8 3 6 17

5. William Lim S.Swift 5 1 8 14

It can be seen from the above that the Andy Kow & Ee Yoong Cherng was equally fair at some point having both got 10 and 9 points from two rounds but Andy Kow’s advantage was his point in the first round leaving the latter 4 points gap and that point giving him the reserve till the final round 4 to finish as champion leaving just 1 point ahead of Ee Yoong Cherng.
Well, it seems that 2009 is nearing the end of it and we’re entering 2010 just around the corner. The 2009 had showed quite impressive shows from these comptitors despite there are only 4 rounds this year, could be because of the financial crisis which sees most of the industries are affected by it. With 2010 coming soon, we hope that there will be more rounds next year with more cars competing like previous years in GRA. As for 2010, MMTV has something in store for GRA  wanna know what? Then you’ll just have to wait and keep logging on to this site yea!!
