Ten kids from the Association of Social Services and Community Development of Gombak, Selangor were treated to a car-filled day with Team FXPRIMUS Aylezo at the Aylezo Garage in Sunway, Malaysia in early September. Organised by the PRIMUS Child Foundation, the children were treated to a workshop tour, simulator games and were chauffer driven in a variety of Supercars that were brought to the garage by friends of FXPRIMUS and Aylezo Motorsport.

Upon arrival, the children were paired up with an ‘FX Friend’ who became their buddy for the day, before changing into team t-shirts. Then the group was divided into two groups of five with one group going for the workshop tour with Team FXPRIMUS Aylezo’s race driver, Zen Low and Team Manager Cheah Lai Sun, while the other group had a few rounds of ‘racing’ with the guidance of team driver, Afiq Yazid.

On the tour, the children were brought to every corner of the workshop, shown the different types of cars that the crew was working on and also to witness a little race session demonstration to give them a better understanding of what goes on during a race. Zen and Cheah also explained the importance of safety in the workplace before showing them some videos of the team’s recent races at their home circuit in Sepang International Circuit and also at Sentul International Circuit in Indonesia. At the end of the tour, the children had a little colouring contest and had the chance to take selfies with Zen before the group activities were switched.

After both tours were completed, everyone grouped together for a Question & Answer session with Zen, Afiq and Cheah. The children were quick to ask questions about their races, the workshop and especially the cars. It was then Zen, Afiq and Cheah’s turn to ask them questions, giving them a chance to win some prizes. Kevin De Silva of FXPRIMUS was on hand to present prizes to the children, along with a RM5,000 cheque for the home.

Jackie Cheng, an IB of FXPRIMUS also gave a short motivational talk to the children, right before they were treated to a car ride. Ten different Supercars were lined up outside the workshop waiting to bring the children out for lunch. A welcome treat for the youngsters.
The outing with the children from the Association of Social Services and Community Development of Gombak, Selangor is part of a programme by PRIMUS Child Foundation, an organisation dedicated to improving and transforming the lives of underprivileged children by bringing them better educational opportunities and fulfilling their basic healthcare needs.
