What we have today is a prime example of this particular conversion. Xiao Hong got his Inspira five years ago, and had no intention of modding it whatsoever. But car guys being car guys, when you get that itch, you're gonna be scratching it for as long as you can.
It was a harrowing weekend at the Sepang International Circuit with the Malaysia Championship Series 2016 underway. The weather also proved erratic as the hot and dry weather turned to wet and cold within a matter of moments. This proved to be a challenge for the racing teams competing in the third round of the MCS 2016 as they had to change from dry to wet setup as soon as the clouds began pouring
The day was cloudy as we arrived at the Circuit. It looked like we were expecting some rain but thankfully the rain never came but instead left a nice and cool atmosphere for the race teams. As with all races, the pits were brimming with action and anticipation as everyone was scrambling to prep the cars and the drivers. Tengku Djan kept his cool as he mentally prepared himself for the race where he would compete against other drivers.
Building and prepping the race car is half of the story in winning any race. With a total of 181 laps, covering 1000 kilometers of the Sepang International Circuit, Proton R3 ensures that every single component on their purpose-built Proton Suprima S is in optimum running condition to endure the grueling 8-hour race.
Race mechanics are going back and forth ensuring every setting and every specification on their race cars are in optimum working order while the drivers strategize their every move once out on the track. Cars and drivers alike are prepped and ready for their time to shine out on the circuit.
Rain was still drooling down my front screen as I made my way down to Maeps Serdang for Car enthusiast night x Hondaday Malaysia. It was about 10pm when I reached carpark 2 and although the grounds were damp and wet, the spirit of all the car enthusiasts who was in attendance was not.
