Johor scored another sporting achievement when Tunku Panglima Johor Tunku Abdul Rahman Al-Haj Ibni Sultan Ibrahim clinched the GT World Challenge Asia GT3 Pro-Am Driver’s Championship with his partner Nick Foster on Sunday (25 September).
Their team – Triple Eight Race Engineering – also triumphed in the overall GT3 Teams Championships following the conclusion of the final round of racing at the Okayama Circuit in Japan.
Tunku Putera Johor Tunku Abu Bakar Al-Haj Ibni Sultan Ibrahim also capped a fine debut season, clinching fifth spot in the GT3 Pro-Am Drivers standings alongside partner Jazeman Jaafar.
Beaming with pride, Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar said he was very pleased with the achievements of his two youngest sons.
“We didn’t only create history on the national stage with the Malaysia Games (Sukma), but my sons also flew the Johor flag high on the international arena,” said His Majesty.
“I would like to congratulate them both on a job well done this season. To Iman (Tunku Panglima), keep up the good work and to Boo (Tunku Putera), try and overtake your brother next season!” His Majesty jokingly added.
