The Asian Classic Car Challenge is set for an explosive finish

Asian Classic Car Challenge series enters its final round on Dec 8-9

After five exhilarating rounds and 10 thrilling races, the inaugural Asian Classic Car Challenge (ACCC) series enters its final round on Dec 8-9 at Sepang International Circuit (SIC) with the battle for the overall crown and the premier open class title still up for grabs. Incorporated as one of the support races at next weekend's Sepang 1000-Kilometer (S1K) race, Round 6 of the ACCC, which features drivers from various backgrounds, promises another to be an explosive affair.

"It will be an extremely important final two races for the series. Naturally, we are proud to be associated with the prestigious S1K event, which is one of the key events organized by SIC every year in its efforts to promote motorsports in the region," said series spokesman Daniel Bilski of Classic Car Club of Hong Kong Ltd.

Bilski, who currently leads the open class with 79 points, pointed out that nothing can be taken for granted and that he would need to be at his best to keep the top spot at the conclusion of the two races next weekend.

"For Class O, all three final positions are open and it will be decided on the final race weekend. With the ever changing fortunes of drivers this season, nothing can be taken for granted in Class O," said Bilski, who carries an 11-point advantage over Bertie McCrory. Third is held by Paul Wilkermann with 61 points after five rounds.

In Class A, Iain Mackenzie has secured an unassailable lead with a total haul of 96 points; crowning him as the maiden winner of the ACCC.  With 55 points, lady driver Nurul Husna, who is making her debut in the series this season, has secured second in the class.

"This is indeed a great achievement for Nurul and we at the series are indeed very happy for her. Third place in the class, however, is still up for grabs," said Bilski in reference to the battle between Saiful Anuar and Firdaus Musa.
