Malaysia’s homegrown hero Fahmi took to the world stage at the first race of the year at the Grand Prix of Qatar under the wings of World Wide Racing team; proudly entitled Team AirAsia Sepang International Circuit.

Finishing in 21st place, with team mate Sturla a few places in front at 18th place, it was a good start to the season, with plenty of time for them to improve at each race.

Alessandro Tonelli, the team’s Technical Director, says it’s a great result, for a couple of newcomers: “I’ve been surprised by Sturla and Zulfhami. They are new to this championship – nevertheless, they did a good job, absorbed every piece of information received and, on track, pushed 100%.

Check out the boys in action;

I’m the tall English girl in the company and I help organize sport and recreational activities for the lovely AirAsia staff. The perfect job for me as sport is really where my passion lies; anything and everything, I’ll give it a go! Lacrosse is my main sport but over here in Malaysia its played about as much as quidditch…so I spend my time running, swimming, netballing and tennising and soon I will be trying my hand at rugby for the first time – why not?!

As well as sport I love traveling; and South East Asia is an amazing place to be to explore; Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia – the list is endless!

A friend of mine recently set me a task to visit all of AirAsia’s destinations – I think I’ve got quite a few more to go before that’s completed!

Other favorite things are extreme activities; bungee jumping, sky diving, glacier hiking…next thing on my list is Mount Kinabalu and the Macau bungee which is over 200m, and I will have ticked off another AirAsia destination – get in!
