GAS Gymkhana series 2016 held its final round of the series on the 18th December 2016.Using MAEPS ,Mardi Serdang as the venue for all its 5 rounds, GAS which is on its 2nd year of running is proud to be instrumental in reviving the sport of Gymkhana in Malaysia, with other organisers now running similar events with many using GAS as the template for their events for rules n regulations and also for categories.
This is commendable considering that this a self funded event with a very small team!
However, we attribute our success to the undying support the Gymkhana community had given us.Words of encourgements n valueble advice were used to guide us throughout this past 2 years! We were privilged to have Gymkhana celebrities such as Mitch Chong who was our course judge for the past couple of events ,lending a hand and also Mickey Teoh in helping us promoting our humble event!
And of course, those who participated in our events played an important role in making this event a success
Participants like Abdul Halim who had not missed a single GAS event every since we started! This is a participant that has to travel 8 hours to just participate as he resides in Kuala Terengganu! We are most fortunate to have him in our events!
- The beauty of Gymkhana, with the multiple categories being contested, is the mixture of cars contesting; not only there are varieties in drive trains but also the state of build! From the stock show room standard to the stripped out purpose built cars can be seen competing!We have participants such as Mr Chow, in his stock standard Proton Wira , who placed 2nd in the Front Wheel Drive Road Legal Category,And we have En Fadly Hashim in his purposed built race Proton Satria!
