The GS Trophy Southeast Asia Qualifier 2015, held at Enduro Park Thailand from 30 October to 1 November 2015, marks a sweet victory for Singapore representative Mr. Tommy Lee, along with his future team-mates; Mr. Peerapat Woratham (Thailand) and Mr. Mohd Faizal Sukree (Malaysia) who will be joining forces to take on the upcoming GS Trophy 2016 tournament in Chiang Mai.
Held in Thailand for the first time, GS Trophy Southeast Asia Qualifier 2015 is a qualifying round in which one winner from Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia, comes together as a team of three to represent Southeast Asia. The team will then battle early next year against 18 competing teams from other regions around the world, including the first female team, at the International GS Trophy 2016.
Skills, teamwork and strategy to successfully complete the mission at hand are essential in the GS Trophy tournament. Honorable judges will include eminent persons from the off-road tournament such as Tomm Wolf, an icon of GS Trophy.
Mr. Sethipong Anutarasoti, Corporate Affairs Director of BMW Group Asia said: “GS Trophy competition is BMW’s world-class off-road motorcycle challenge. This is the first time for a Southeast Asia team to participate in the competition and the first for Thailand to host the qualifier at Enduro Park Thailand in Bangkok, as well as the final round of International GS Trophy 2016 in Chiang Mai. BMW Motorrad is very proud to be a part of this regional and international program, which reinforces our strength in the big bike market, both domestically and internationally.”
