Chin Swee Temple Car Park was PACKED with not just old school rides, but also with new and modern rides! Organized by BackwheelBitches, the annual Kiss Of The Horizon 2017 (KOTH 2017) event saw numerous builds and makes from various disciplines and backgrounds. A great day up in the mountains!
Japan is famously known for two very terrifying, larger than life monsters; one of it being Godzilla, a fictional behemoth that terrorizes the streets of Tokyo, and the other monster being a four-wheel drive, 2.6 liter twin turbo sports coupe produced by Nissan from 1969 up until today.
This morning's route went through the scenic b-roads of Ulu Yam, winding up through the mountain with some light traffic. The drive ended with a quick photo shoot at the Chin Swee Temple Car Park right before the Auxillary Police came by and closed the barrier to the place.
Last Sunday we were privileged enough to follow (keep up with) a group of legit, prime and prepped BMWs sporting the infamous "///M" badge up to Genting Highlands. BMW M, M standing for Motorsports, is a division within the company that specifically tunes, modifies and produces high performance cars which are generally sold to the public.
A total of 14 R32s came to the event which was scorching hot. The perfect weather for you to go through a set of brand new rubbers while lapping the 1.6km circuit. The MIMC track is a tight and technical circuit which might be a bit too small for the likes of these R32s. Nevertheless, they had fun doing drifts and such throughout the tight and twisty turns.
The atmosphere during Speed Junkies was very exhilarating and truly reflected the automotive and motorsports scene in Malaysia. The car guys came out in full force to end their 2016 with a bang. Trackday participants could be seen negotiating through turn 1 and 2 of the Sepang International Circuit as attendees were walking about in the Autoshow. The day was HOT and luckily it did not rain, we received forecast that we would be getting some showers in the afternoon but thankfully it blew over.
A few months ago, we organized the infamous 'Midnight Attack'; a drag meet in a secluded housing area in Elmina. The reason why it was 'infamous' is because we managed to gather a crowd of 1,000 cars in attendance dragging along a 300 meter strip of road which eventually attracted the attention of the police. We ended our night (morning) at the police station with a stern warning from the authorities.
This morning we held our very first Speed Junkies Touge session which was in conjunction with our upcoming #SPEEDJUNKIES2016 event in December. We were at BHP Karak Highway by 6:30am and the crowd had already formed! We announced earlier on our Facebook and Instagram Pages that our meetup time would be at 7:00am but the station was packed to the brim by then.
Geraldine began her racing career in 2014, when she beat 300 other aspiring racers for a spot in the all-female Red Bull Rookies team. Together with two other rookies, the team was put through a series of intensive race-driving training courses before competing at the Sepang 1000KM Endurance Race later that year. Geraldine and her team made a commendable 12th place finish in their debut race against factory teams and privateers alike.
It was an articulate dance between pit crew, race car, and driver as they ensured everything was in enduro mode. Watching the Remaining Laps tick off one by one on the Main Screen was a long journey as the countdown started from 50 with at least 2-hours remaining. There were numerous challenges on the track as some drivers bumped and collided with each other within Sepang's infamous technical turns.
