Singaporean simracers Ar Muhammad Aleef Mohamed Rafik and Jason Tay have clinched the Overall Championship Pro Class in the eRacing Grand Prix Southeast Asia (ERGP SEA) Causeway Edition.
Both simracers, who are Legion of Racers (LOR) professional athletes, took the top two spots in the competition which pit Singapore’s best against the top simracers from Malaysia.

A total of eight races were held over four rounds, with 21-year-old Aleef dominating the races.

He finished first in three of the races and returned second in three others, with the best six of eight results taken into consideration for the overall championship.

The duo’s exploits were also picked up by Motorsports Singapore, who posted a congratulatory note on their Facebook page.
In addition to the Causeway Edition, LOR’s simracers from Luis Moreno and Andika Maulana also found themselves at the top of the podium in eRGP SEA’s Indonesia and Philippines Editions, thus making it a clean sweep for the LOR athletes in the competitions organised by eRGP, which was started by former Malaysian race car driver Alex Yoong.
“It feels great to have come out as the Champion of eRGP’s Causeway Edition against some tough opposition and leading a 1-2 charge for Legion of Racers with my fast and talented team mate Jason Tay,” said Aleef.
“The Tatuus Formula 4 was a pretty tricky but rewarding car to drive and overtaking in it always brought good enjoyment!”

Aleef’s victory in the eRGP SEA Causeway Edition further cements his position as one of the region’s top simracers.

Earlier this month, he was crowned champion of the eRGP SEA Global Edition, and was also the Logitech G Challenge Asia Pacific e-racing champion in Melbourne.

Along with Tay and Jaden Low, who came in sixth in the Causeway Edition, the trio have been on LOR’s pro roster since 2018.

“I was really excited to race in this series as it happens right after my university exams. I really enjoyed driving the Formula 4 car as it suited my driving style, allowing me to be closer to Aleef than usual,” commented undergraduate Tay.

“There was great team chemistry with Aleef where we frequently had race-deciding moments where it could have ended up in a mess, but we played the team game which allowed us to achieve 1st and 2nd place in every Race 1 of each round, greatly benefitting our championship run.

“I am really proud to be able to fly the Singapore flag alongside my teammates.”

Winner of the Philippines edition Moreno said, “I feel very happy in taking the top spot in this Philippines series. It’s one of the most intense local championships I had with all of the best sim racers in the country taking part.”

“It was not easy but I did my best to focus and win as many races as I could. It is amazing that we managed to capture the podium in all the four main competitions organised by eRGP SEA,” added Maulana, who won the Indonesian edition.

LOR co-founder Melvin Moh who has been mentoring the simracers noted that their performances in the eRGP series has elevated their regional presence.

“The podium positions and victories has continued to elevate LOR’s simracing brand presence in the region. As a team, the boys have been performing well, and we are ecstatic that all our simracers are continuing to excel in their competitions,” he remarked.

武吉巴督组屋单位疑PMD充电引起火患 一男一女婴送院治疗

武吉巴督组屋单位昨日(8日)又发生一起个人代步工具引起火灾事故,一名男子与一名女婴则因为吸入过量浓烟而送院。 根据民防部队脸书帖文指出,他们于昨日早上10点40分接获通报,关于武吉巴督西4道第416座组屋一个五楼的单位发生火灾,在赶往现场后发现单位内的男住户,以及住在六楼的一名女婴均吸入浓烟,因此需分别前往新加坡中央医院与竹脚妇幼医院接受治疗。 现场有约30名居民,均被民防部队疏散。 据民防部队所拍摄的照片,可见屋内已被烧毁,面目全非,墙上更被熏黑,其房内物品也逃不过被烧毁的命运,包括屋内正在充电的电动踏板车,照片显示,其器材被烧得仅剩电池残骸。 民防部队也透露,初步的调查结果,毫无意外,仍与充电中的电动踏板车有关,相信当时是因为电动踏板车在充电而引起的火患。 民防部队呼吁民众应该遵循防火安全指示,避免意外发生,而日前陆交局亦鼓励所有PMD用户应使用UL2272认证的个人代步工具。 民防部队也提供数项安全指示,供民众参阅: 使用带有安全标志的电源适配器 在充电期间,必须使用贴有安全标志的的电源适配器(Power adaptor),因此民众购买时必须留意充电器上是否贴有安全标志。 请勿过夜、在易燃物或逃生道附近充电,可能导致过热 用户必须遵循制造商的充电使用说明,勿让电源过夜充电。电池充电过度可能会导致过热而引发火灾,子女应在成人的监督下充电。同时,避免在易燃物或逃生道附近充电。…

“滥用泼马法企图噤声异见” 马律师组织不遵循更正指示

今早(22日),内政部援引《防假消息法》(POFMA),要求马国捍卫自由律师团(LHL)、《网络公民》、雅虎新闻以及新闻工作者韩俐颖,发出更正指示。 事缘内政部指责捍卫自由律师团,在本月16日的新闻稿作出不实指控,称樟宜监狱以残酷和不合法方式处决囚犯。 不过,捍卫自由律师团也很快在今日作出回应,声称坚持立场,且扬言不遵守新加坡政府发出的更正指示,并要求撤回。 文告坚称樟宜监狱内确实曾发生残酷行刑、且若绞绳断裂,则朝囚犯的脖子后方使劲踢断。并指他们的声明是来自前任和现任监狱官员的证据。 “试图干预马国公民在自家土地发言自由” 同时,该律师组织董事梅丽莎(Melissa Sasidaran)也抨击,近期才生效的《防假消息法》备受争议,是欠缺民主和压迫式的法律,国际上都指责该法被用于钳制异见。 “再者,新方对在马国土地发文告的组织,用《防假消息法》发出更正指示,是令人愤慨和无法接受的。新方无权干预马国公民在自家土地发声明的言论自由。” 梅丽莎认为新加坡内政部的做法无疑是要让该组织噤声,避免处决方式的真相公开;他揶揄新加坡政府应学会接受批评。 “他们对于真相和事实没有独断权。这种尝试把管辖权力延伸到马国公民身上的做法,是挑衅、非法的,也违反国际法。” 内政部驳斥指控 内政部驳斥,捍卫自由律师团作出不实指控;并强调政府不遗余力确保执法严格遵守法律程序,而执刑也都有监狱长或一名医生在场等。…
