You gotta’ hand it to all race car drivers. Be it on the circuit, the rally stage or even an empty car park, every single of them is always up for a challenge – and what a challenge it will be as Malaysian drift sensation, Leona Chin, has just issued one in the direction of WRC driver, Jari-Matti Latvala.

The challenge appears simple enough with the local lass set to go head to head against the Finnish driver (who has chalked up a total of 14 rally wins, by the way) in a gymkhana course at the Setia City Convention Center on September 4. Whether or not he decides to take up the challenge during his Malaysian visit, we’ll find out soon enough.

Those who were unfamiliar with Leona’s stunts might have taken notice when a video of her dressed as an unfashionable learner driver went viral. In said video, Leona adopted the persona of a rather terrible learner driver to prank several unsuspecting instructors. Upon entering the vehicle however, said instructors were given a rude awakening as Leona gave them a taste of her true driving talent.

So, then, who do you think will come out on top in this challenge? Will you be gunning for our local heroine or will Latvala prove the old adage ‘If you want to win, hire a Finn’ true?
