Ealrier this year, Afiq had a taste of a GT3 car when he participated in the Asian Le Man Series driving an Audi GT3 car with Team ARC Bratislava. Endurance racing is also not new to Afiq as hehad participated in the Sepang 12 hours with Team Gt TIre where they won the GTC class.
When asked about the drive, Afiq said, "it is a great opportunity for me to have this chance to race in a higher level of racing. This will be my first time racing in the Lamborghini Huracan GT3. I have had few laps on this car 3 weeks ago and it is not much different from the Super Trofeo car. I hope to learn and gain as much knowledge as possible especially on the car characteristics. Working with Orido would be a great and I hope to learn from him. We also are hoping to finish on the podium this weekend".
