Racing with the ETEC Motorsport team, Andrew is the first and only Singaporean to participate in this series. Practice rounds have just commenced and the series will have five races over five weeks, ending in mid-February.

The Toyota Racing Series is a one-make formula car series using chassis supplied to Toyota Racing by Tatuus in Italy and powered by Toyota’s 2ZZ-GE engine producing 215bhp on E85 ethanol-blend fuel.

There are about 18 drivers taking part in the 2013 season, hailing from all over the world including New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Colombo, Australia, Canada, UK, Holland, Malaysia, Thailand and Norway.

Andrew’s last major win in Asia was the overall championship title for the Senior category in the 2011 Asian Karting Open Championship (AKOC).
