Updates: After the first day of injury, I stayed back to finish the elimination test which was to battle against my team mate Jin Zhi Yong on a Time Attack Battle. The race was held the following day and I walked with crutches and wore a knee guard to prevent my leg from further injury.

During the race, I wanted to prove that even with my injury tear of ligament, I still could drive and if i had the chance to beat my opponent would be a proud moment for me. However, I lost to my opponent by a difference of 0.4 secs.

I came back to Malaysia and did a MRI scan and confirmed that I have lost my left ACL Ligament.

Even though I have lost my ACL but I decided not to proceed with the ACL knee surgery but opt for strengthening of the upper thigh muscles through physiotherapy and rehabilitation sessions.
I am now able to cycle and jog and compete in motorsports as long as I do not engage in sports that may trigger the onset of pivoting the knee. Luckily motorsports isn’t like football or badminton or basketball where most athletes ACL injuries occur.
