Hello everyone, I am Leona Chin, a Malaysian motorsport athlete who has been passionately racing since 2008 and diving into the world of motorsport drifting since 2005. It’s an honor to be regarded as the fastest female race car driver in Malaysia and to be considered an inspiring figure in the motorsports industry.
One of the things that sets me apart is my multilingualism. I can speak English, Mandarin, and Malay, which has allowed me to connect with people from different backgrounds and cultures throughout my racing journey.
My racing career began unexpectedly when I stumbled upon a group of car enthusiasts who introduced me to the fascinating world of engines, technical knowledge, and driving skills. From that moment, I was hooked and decided to pursue racing with all my heart.
Over the years, I have gained international attention in the motorsport industry, showcasing my talent, perseverance, and determination to excel in a sport that is predominantly male-dominated. It has been a challenging yet rewarding journey, and I am grateful for every opportunity that has come my way.
In 2020, I had the privilege of making my debut in the GT World Challenge Asia Series, an incredible milestone in my racing career. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the season, but it didn’t dampen my spirit and determination to continue pursuing my dreams.
Aside from racing, I have had the pleasure of appearing in various TV shows and reality programs, such as the “FTEAM Reality TV Show” in China and the “Che Shen Jia Dao” reality TV show challenge in Hang Zhou, China. These experiences have allowed me to share my passion for motorsports with a wider audience and inspire others to chase their own dreams.
I have been fortunate to receive recognition and awards for my accomplishments, including being appointed as the official ambassador for China Auto Salon (CAS) in 2019 and winning the Most Inspiring Female Motorsport Athlete award at the Petronas SIC Motorsports Association of Malaysia Awards in 2018. These accolades serve as reminders that hard work and dedication can truly make a difference.
Endurance races have also been a part of my racing journey, including the exhilarating 12-hour endurance race as a member of an all-female race team. Collaborating with other talented women to achieve a common goal is an experience like no other.
In today’s digital age, I make sure to maintain a strong presence on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Twitter, LinkedIn, Youku, Weibo, and Douyin. Through these channels, I am able to connect with fans, share behind-the-scenes moments, and inspire others to pursue their passions fearlessly.
I am grateful for the incredible support I have received from fans, sponsors, and the motorsports community. It is their encouragement that fuels my drive to continuously push my limits and strive for excellence on and off the track.
Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey, and I look forward to creating more unforgettable moments together in the world of motorsports. Stay tuned for exciting adventures ahead!
