Last Saturday was the SNF 2014 Championship Awards Presentation. Held at Sepang International Circuit (SIC), the event was held in conjunction with the launch of the SNF 2014 Series which we reported here.
With plenty of barbecued burgers and hot dogs, there were 10 categories in total where prizes were given out to. All nicely laid out just at the entrance of Pit 4 at the SIC Paddock area, the crowd slowly started to arrive at 3.30pm before Adian Yein took to the stage to kick off the event.
A short speech was given by Dhayalan R. Renno, the Chief executive of Nusa Consult Sdn Bhd (Ducatus Motor Oil), one of the sponsor for SNF.
After the speeches, the prizes were then presented out to the following winners. In total there were 10 categories in which prizes will be presented to the winners. Here are the SNF Championship 2013 Final Standings.

As the event came to a close, I definitely became a fan of the SNF event as it brings racing out of the streets and allows speed freaks to channel their energy towards motorsports. I am also glad that they included in tyre regulation in the new series as tyres are freakishly expensive and having deep coffers will definitely grab you that extra second on the track.
I definitely look forward to the new SNF 2014 Series starting in March.
Here are the new classification for the SNF 2014 series for your reference.
