Only a group of 4 and no photos this round…’hit the wall’ after a massive ascent up a hill..had to use Mike as my portable back rest. Thats what happens when you wait for the people you dropped on a climb ( i’m sticking to this excuse guys :P)
Oh god!! has it already been that long??? Well as promised heres the rest of the coverage of FD Malaysia 2009 ,which I thought was my worse FD yet ( This year’s Singapore FD tops it , hands down!!)
We all got to the track early the next day. It was a good thing that the replacement throttle had arrived as today is the offical practice followed by the qualifying session
Ming and Cheng inspecting the replacement throttle we got early that morning
1st practice had everyone in a joyous mood
everyone is raring to go
smiles all around..
except for me…:P
Finally we got the car together and I was excited to test the car without its gremlins..
everyone was doing well
The first casualty of the day
My practice time was cut short due to a leak in my manifold..
Everyone waited patiently for the judges to arrive for the 2nd drivers briefing. Djan took the opportunity to do a few facial excersise while doing so
Mad Mike’s immaculate RX7
Another beautiful ride belonging to one of the Hong Kong drifter
Pop of Thailand pulled out a few beautiful runs during practice
Jane was consistent all day
I was getting use to the car’s handling and but the manifold started to leak again and I was losing power so i had to stop my practice mid way
Mad Mike was virtually rubbing his rear bumper on the wall all day
Cheng fixing the leak once again.
As predicted it rained
Yoong did a good run
So did Meryvn
Unfortunately, nerves got the better of Jane. She straighten on her first run and spun on her second inspite of doing so well during practice
I managed a good run and was placed third at the 1st round of qualifying. Till Djan knock everyone down a spot to claim first place on the second run. I wanted to better my first run and had attempted to rub the wall with my rear bumper…
Instead I bent everything on the car
Well I was off to the workshop and try get everything fixed …
Apparently I missed the annoucements and the post qualfying interview but I had Jane to represent me so it was ok..
Taken in 2004 during at the DCM’s Defying Grip 1 competition in Shah Alam..when hairs were still intact and bellies weren’t so bloated..
Due to safety equipments were not sufficient enough for track layout by the main organiser, we as sub-organiser has decided to cancel the event for this matter.
We would like to apologize to participants and crew that had worked hard in preparing their cars for this competition and also to some that had travel from far.
An official letter of apology will be provided by the main organiser for those who needs one, kindly contact Jane at +6012 4870487 for more details.
