Bar None: S2E15 - Vroom Goes The Jazeman

Getting in a high-performance kart and swerving around the race-track at seven years of age isn’t exactly the common routine for most kids. But one Jazeman Jaafar did exactly that and had his dues paid off, is now proudly hoisting high the Jalur Gemilang on the international circuit. Now driving for McLaren GT, he is the youngest professional racer to win the Formula BMW Asia, the first asian to finish as vice-champion in the British Formula 3 Championship and also took the chequered flag at the most difficult racing track in the world - the Monaco Grand Prix. He joins us and tells us of his journey so far, the challenges he had to face, and of the future of motor-sport in Malaysia.
