Senna Sin (Karting racer, driver, coach)

Picture
Hello, my name is Senna Sin and I'm 31 years old. I love motorsports a lot but didn't have a chance to experience it until I went to a kart circuit in Hong Kong. After several times I tried karting and racing, I want to have a change in my career so I decided and looked forward to change my job and become a professional driver in the near future.

The first time I drove a kart was at the age of 25. The same year, I received the best lap record at the Diamond Coast International Kart Circuit. I had won several different types of races in the year of 2008 – including the 2 Hrs Endurance Kart Race, and the YJI Cup. I also achieved an overall standing of first place for the Chicken Kart King Championship and the Hong Kong Kart Club Championship. My first experience in driving a formula car was at the end of 2008 when I went to Zhuhai to join the Formula Racing School with FRD.

At 2012 I am a founder of the Hong Kong Racing School for Motorsports. I hope they can learn something from my experience and looking forward the motorsports will become more and more popular in Hong Kong.



Chewy (BMX rider and coach)

Picture
I began riding at 4 years of age and never looked back. I have always ridden my bikes for enjoyment and try to be the best a dvocate for the sport I can be by encouraging everyone young and old to get involved at all levels.

I raced go-karts at a young age for several years and spent the past 6 years racing Down Hill MTB and BMX. I have ridden Trials, and Freestyle BMX as well as Moto-X in Australia before traveling Europe with my BMX in a van for 3.5 years. I coached Junior tennis for 2 years and developed several programs including 'Wimbledon Weenies' on Australia's Gold Coast.

Recently I have been fortunate enough to have the support from a Hong Kong BMX shop, BMX Evolution and I am very grateful for the opportunity to represent my first team!! Also a big thanks to DC Shoes, Garmin, Geigerrig, Muc-Off, DVO Suspension, Onza Tires, Stream Trail, Acti-Tape, & Dosun for the best riding gear available. 

I now own a coaching business that teaches children as young as 2 to ride on two wheels. Sharing my passion for the sport makes me happy. Ride On!

TEAMS


Project852 (cycling)

Picture
Garmin is proud to sponsor the newly created Hong Kong Cycling Team – Project852. The sponsorship of Project852 is doubly exciting as it brings a whole new concept to Hong Kong amateur cycling by combining multiple cycling clubs to form an event-based team.

Conceived by three Hong Kong cyclists, Rupert Griffiths, Aron Åkesson and Clinton Leong, Project852 brings together riders from multiple Hong Kong clubs for overseas stage races. The seasoned gents had noticed that riders at these competitive events were all too often split into small teams, or even racing solo and wanted to create an inclusive team.

Instrumental in the forging of friendship across the clubs- Dragons, Tritons, SIRS and Colossi, Rupert, who finished 3rd in category 2 of the Tour de Bintan last year, comments: “The team element is critical at these tough multi-day events – riders not only need to help each other but they can also put together team strategies to go for the win . By removing historical club rivalry and combining riders from Hong Kong under one banner, we will form a stronger and more capable team.”
