Malaysian athlete Daniel is a race-winning national formula car champion having progressed from a successful karting career. He is one of the very few Malaysians participating in single-seater racing, and has career aspirations of making it to Formula 1.

Daniel is an 18 year-old straight ‘A’ graduate from the Alice Smith International School, and is pursuing a professional career in motor sport.

In 2013, Daniel was selected to participate in the AsiaCup Formula BMW single-seater race car Series. After winning races in his first season, he became the first winner of the AsiaCup Malaysian Series. This success resulted in an invitation from Petronas and Mercedes Formula 1 team to attend their pit garage during the Singapore GP. Daniel’s success frequently sees him on the podium, which ensures that he’s able to advertise his partners in front of the media’s eye, as was evident with his dominant performance in the last AsiaCup race series of 2014 – where he won 4 of the 6 races.
