After winning the RWD category the first round of Conemasters International Gymkhana Challenge, I was obviously eager to defend my title for this second round. Word got out to Jane that I had so much fun during the first round that she decide to join this round too.
Upon hearing this, organiser extraordinaire, Ben Loh decided to spice things up putting out a poster with both Jane and I on it with the caption ” Will Hubby Let Wifey Take The Win?”
Well everyone knows the answer to that, after all they don’t call me the “Boss” for nothing!
Jokes aside; the weather that day was wetter than an otters pocket, which was perfect as I ironically do better in the wet than in the dry.
One thing I like about how Conemasters operates was ;We were given multiple timed runs within an allocated time for our category, which was unique for autocross/gymkhana events here. However despite posting the best time, I was relentless in improving my time as I was going against the best RWD competitor in Malaysia. With the likes of Mickey, Chris, Hafiz and Vijay, I knew that my time could easily be toppled at any given moment and had to continue to strive for the best time I could muster.
Jane with her drift set up competition car was struggling to get grip throughout the course. Though not being able to post a good time , her runs were spectacular to say the least.
The weather soon cleared up and it was soon scorching hot and it became more of a nail biting experience for me as my other competitors time were beginning to improve thus inching their way into the time I had set.
To my relief, I clinched the fastest RWD title for the 2nd consecutive time by the skin of my teeth from Mickey Teoh!
Well all I have to say Conemasters rocks!! From the swags to the pit girls to everything , it just rocks..Bring on round 3 Ben!!!
