Weiron Tan

Despite being only 22, Weiron has been behind the wheel of a motor powered vehicle for nine years. Consistently levelling up from a 13-year-old competing with go-karts, to becoming the first Malaysian to win a motor race in the United States of America. Although he names Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher as his heroes, in the more immediate future, Weiron is looking to build on his fourth place finish in the Pro Mazda Championship before filling Alex Yoong’s seat as a Malaysian competing in Formula One.

Did you know: When he’s not speeding in a car down the track, Weiron enjoys snowboarding down icy slopes.
