After eight rounds of grueling sim-racing action, the E1 Championship Season Zero came to a close at the Mount Panorama Circuit with Naquib Azlan and his team, Stratos Motorsport, taking home the driver and team championships.
Despite finishing second in the season-finale race, the 21-year-old Malaysian, who consistently finished in the top three throughout the season, clinched the title and a grand prize of US$5000 with a 67-point lead over fellow Malaysian driver Ayman Aqeem of Team RSG.
His performance, along with team-mate Yevan David who finished eighth, was also enough to seal his side's team championship 12 points ahead of Team RSG.
Team Safehouse's Mikko Nassi, representing Indonesia, finished third and bagged US$3000 for himself.
Organised by Astro’s esports and gaming channel, eGG Network, and former F1 driver Alex Yoong’s Axle Sports, the E1 Championship was launched last October to provide a platform for the best sim racing drivers in Asia Pacific to compete at the highest level.
