William Au-Yeung is no stranger to extreme FWD performance, especially when it comes to Hondas. He and PZtuning (Point Zero), an automotive performance store and full shop in Canada, are also not strangers to setting Road Atlanta records, having completely crushed it at Global Time Attack at Road Atlanta in that same Unlimited class Honda Civic with a 1:19.509. They also brought their Limited class Acura RSX, proving that they’re no strangers to Acuras, either.
But this feat was almost not meant to be. At Super Lap Battle at Buttonwillow, after earning a 2nd-place finish in the RSX and securing the 2017 GTA Championship Pro Title, the car suffered an oil fire that fortunately only took out some of the vehicle’s wiring and other little things.
For 2018, PZtuning decided to attack the RSX, refreshing and upgrading it in the hopes of doing well at Global Time Attack at Road Atlanta. However, with the lion’s share of PZtuning’s efforts focused on their Unlimited Civic, the RSX was completed but didn’t even get a proper tune before Global Time Attack at Road Atlanta. William and the PZ crew used data logs from on-track laps to dial in the tune! Apparently it worked.
He’s also the fabricator and part-time tuner on the RSX. I’ve heard he’s also the cook and bottle washer. William has been actively track driving since 1997, and has been involved with competitive wheel to wheel racing in the past (2003/04 in an EG).
