Leona Chin breaks record as Best Asian Female Driver

Malaysia Female Racing Driver , Leona Chin, finished 2nd overall in Clio Cup China Series.


Breaking the male racing driver stereotype, Leona successfully landed multiple podium positions throughout the 12 round championship.  Held in five international circuits around Asia, her race car certainly stood out with pink and yellow livery sponsored by Team WebTVAsia. 


“It has been a challenging first season for me but I am very happy to have competed with and learned from top racers in Asia. To be crowned championship first runner up was beyond my expectations so I am definitely looking forward to coming back stronger next year,” Leona said.


She caught the motorsport bug at the age of 16 and has ventured into all forms of racing like drifting, circuit racing, gymkhana, go karting and even rallying since then. Her natural driven and friendly character has propelled Leona to great heights and somewhat of a celebrity with many YouTube prank videos going viral throughout the years.
