LOCAL motorsport enthusiast Vance Lee Khin Pek continues to excel in the 4×4 motoring sport when he collected the Best Rainforest 2019 Winner Special Award last weekend at the Rainforest Trophy Malaysia 2019 event held from June 28 to July 6 in Kuala Chini in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Vance Lee, driving with his partner Li from China, was the overall champion last year at the same competition.

A total of 16 4×4 off-road vehicles from Brunei, Hong Kong, Russia, Indonesia and Malaysia participated in the event.

Lee said, “The condition of the route of the race was not easy. The road was wet and slippery. Working as a team, we managed to finish the race. I am honoured to bring home the Best Rainforest 2019 Winner Special Award.”

Vance Lee’s next race is in September at the GK International 4×4 Off-Road Challenge 2019 in Shah Alam, Malaysia.
