Tommy:

歡迎大家收看冠軍特輯

這次我邀請到甄卓偉

他是中國房車錦標賽2011年度總冠軍

可謂前途無可限量, 那麼先請你作自我介紹吧

Andy:

大家好,我是甄卓偉Andy

其實很多朋友都問過我的賽車歷程

我的賽車歷程應該要由我爸爸說起

因為我爸爸本身是一個賽車手

他之前有參加過房車賽以及卡丁車比賽

我與大部分男孩一樣

年紀很小就非常喜歡賽車這項運動

直到11歲那一年, 爸爸就安排了一輛Go-Kart(卡丁車)給我開始練習

然後就參加比賽, 也參加過全國性青少年錦標賽

2003年開始就參加了香港房車錦標賽

參加過1600cc組、2000cc組比賽

甚至後來的S2000澳門杯高級組比賽

對於我個人來說自己的轉捩點在2009

因為2009年我加入了長安福特賽車隊

參加CTCC中國房車錦標賽

Tommy:

卓偉,2011對於你來說一定非常難忘

跟我們說一下整個經歷吧

Andy:

其實說到2011

對於我和車隊來說最開心當然是拿到車隊全年總冠軍

其次是可以拿到我個人的車手年度總冠軍

這兩件事對於我和車隊來說都是非常興奮、非常開心, 也很難忘

至於我們在2011賽季也經歷了很多難忘的事情

始終全年度一共有8站賽事

當中最開心的要數第二站——珠海

因為我是從第三位起步

然後在沖線是追了上來拿到第一個冠軍, 非常開心

2011賽季第一個分站冠軍

當時其實是很開心, 我站到了車頂上面

很多朋友說你這樣會踩壞車頂

其次,珠海站過後去到成都

在成都站我的排位成績並不理想, 排到第11

到正式比賽起步前幾分鐘就下起了暴雨

或者這一場雨也幫了我, 最後獲得季軍

這個過程很深刻, 雖然不是冠軍

但是可以幫車隊拿到積分

繼成都站之後, 面對最困難一場比賽是在內蒙古

是第4站——鄂爾多斯

主要有關於新賽例修改

每一站贏得冠軍要加重60kg

而當時去到內蒙古鄂爾多斯站我的賽車已經加重了140kg

其實是一個很重的負荷, 對於車輛在彎道上的操控、刹車性能、直線加速

甚至在比賽當中的輪胎損耗都有很大影響

那一站比賽比較辛苦, 但最終都以第6名完成比賽

以背負了這麼大負重來說成績還算是比較理想

最後一場,第8站比賽, 我們去到上海天馬山賽車場

這一站可以說是全年度最重要的比賽

因為有三位車手可以爭奪車手年度總冠軍寶座

在決賽時我是排第4位起步, 起步非常順利

超越了一個對手進佔第3

去到T4彎道再把握了一次機會超越另一名對手上升到第2

經過20多圈比賽, 我最終以第3名沖線

我回到維修站以後看到一片藍色的海洋

因為車隊上下所有工作人員全部跑出來包圍了我

我下車以後他們就馬上擁抱我

他們非常興奮、非常開心

因為我們期待已久的2011年車廠、車手雙料年度總冠軍終於拿到了

Tommy:

2011年你就成為了全年度總冠軍

有什麼人你是想要特別感謝一下的呢?

Andy:

那是當然需要的, 很感謝FRD、長安福特、Yokohamabp 優途

CastrolTeinAvanti 以及 Recaro, 很感謝他們在這一年內的支持和參與

另外我也很想感謝我的家人, 以及所有關注和支持我的朋友

謝謝你們

長安福特無論在技術上或者架構上都是一支非常專業的車隊

我們團隊包括車隊總監許永善

車隊經理凌绍章

德國籍首席工程師Bernd Meyer

以及一班專業技師

他們打造出一輛非常具有競爭力的賽車

再加上隊友何曉樂、江騰一、范高翔配合

令我們車隊可以在2011年賽事奪得驕人成績

Tommy:

那你對於2012年有什麼展望呢?

Andy:

2012年我們車隊會採用全新福克斯賽車

這是一款全新型號

加上我們有新技術合作夥伴艾巴赫和倍斯登

在賽季前我們會為賽車進行不同測試與調校

想知道我們新賽車的競爭能力到底有多高

就要留意2012CTCC賽事

Hes the 2011 Champion of China Touring Car Championship

With promising prospect, Please introduce yourself

Andy:

Hi everyone, I’m Andy Yan

Many of my friends do ask me about my racing history

Actually it was my father who brought me into motor racing

Because he used to be racing driver

Did compete touring and kart races

Just like most young man

Fallen in love with motor racing at young age

Till eleven year old

My father arrange a kart for me to start practice

Then compete races

Also compete national youth competition

Start compete Hong Kong touring car championship at 2003

1600cc group and 2000cc group

Also compete Macau cup highest group S2000

2009 was my turning point

Because I joined FRD racing team

Andy:

Obviously in 2011

Very please our team had won the championship

Also clinch the driver champion myself as well

Me and the team are very happy and thrill with this achievement

Never would forget

There are experience during 2011 races are hard to forget

With eight rounds throughout the year

Second round in Zhuhaiis the round I enjoy the most

Started at third place

Managed to come through before the chequer flag to win the race

Very please

It was the first win of 2011 championship

I were so happy, Stood on top of the car

Many of my friends thought that would damage the roof

After Zhuhai round then to Chengdu

Did not achieve good qualify position at Chengdu stop

Startat11thHeavy rain just before the race begin

Perhaps the rain helped me

Finish third at last

Memorable experience

Despite not winning the race

At least collected more points for the team

After Chengdu stop

Face the most difficult round in Mongolia

It’s the fourth stop at Ordos

Due to race regulation

Every winner has to increase their loading 60kg in every round

My car already increase 140kg when we arrive at Ordos

Its very heavy load

Affect handling, brake performance and acceleration

Also those tires wear out much quicker during the race

Its was difficult a round, At last finish at 6th

Not bad result for such a heavy load

The final stop 8th round race

We went to Shanghai STC

Its very important round of the year

Because its Champion decisive round for three driver

Start at 4th position at the final round

Started very well, Pass one of my rivals to third

With good opportunity at T4 pass another of my rival to second

After 20 laps, Take the third place at the checker flag

I see there was blue ocean as I return back to the pit

Because everyone in the team are out there around me

Hug me as soon I got out the car

They were very excited and very happy

Because we won the long awaited 2011 team and driver champion
