Leading SE Asian Touring Car operation, Team Petronas, named two new cadet drivers today.

Iskandar Bin Syed Hashim (21) and Mohd Farique Bin Hariman (17) will participate in a specially planned cadet racing and training programme that will see them race in Malaysia, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia before they join the International Team.

"Iskander and Mohd have already demonstrated their ability to get in a race car and go fast. Now they need race miles and experience by the truckload. That is where our established champions like Mike (Briggs) will become invaluable" said David Wong, Team Petronas founder and Principal.

Team Petronas' 2001 racing schedule will be announced very shortly.
