DC SHOES OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE – JANUARY 10, 2011
BADBOYBEN TAKES 2ND RUNNER UP AT SEPANG INTERNATIONAL F1 CIRCUIT.
January 10, 2011 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – DC is proud to announce a podium for endorsed driver BadBoyBen who competed in the “Time to Attack” invitational at Sepang International F1 Circuit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia over the holiday period.
The event, arguably South East Asia’s premier Time Attack, saw over 100 vehicles from Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore come together for a meet celebrating the finale of the 2010 driving season. Strictly invitational, each driver had to have recorded an exceptional time during the 2010 season at the prestigious F1 circuit. Ben has done this in both his DC Subaru Sti and more recently in his Lotus Exige, especially prepared for him by Lotus Cars Malaysia.
In the “Fast & Furious” category which is sponsored by Lotus, Ben raced exceptionally well to secure the 2nd Runner Up position in a field that is one class above the “Expert” category reserved for professional drivers in professional race cars. Demonstrating exceptional skill, Ben’s achievement was awesome considering his vehicle competed with stock suspension and tyres. His modifications in the new Exige at this stage only includes Lotus Sports Stage 2 Exhaust and Unichip piggyback ECU. The vehicle that took the category was heavily modified, so with further upgrades we are expecting even better results from the vehicle in the meets of 2011.
“We are extremely pleased with the vehicle, and Ben’s driving under tutelage of Malaysian race legend Oh Kah Beng of Lotus Malaysia” said DC’s South Asia General Manager Jeremy Hale. “The car is looking great and we are looking forward to helping them strive for excellence in 2011 in our commitment to the auto category. Lotus’ vehicles are exceptional, and their commitment to the progression of the motorsport is inspirational”.
Congratulations to Bad Boy Ben, and Lotus Cars Malaysia for a fantastic result. DC is excited to follow the performance of the vehicle through the new year.
