Wow.. time surely flies when you’re having fun. So much so that I have totally lost track of the updates done on the blog. My sincere apologies.
The following are quick updates of what we have been up to these past two months!
Pirelli Cinturato Dealers Launch 4th and 5th August 2012
Sync Optima was commissioned by the Kit Loong , the distributors of Pirreli , to do a launch for their new line of Cinturato tires to their dealers. We had a fleet of cars which ranges from Myvis up to BMW 5 series being supervised by trained instructors for this event.
We had a dry and wet course set up done for the dealers to have a better understanding of the tires handling characteristics.
TGIF’s Fathers Day Competition sponsored by Castrol and YHI Yokohama 26th August 2012
In conjunction with Fathers Day, TGIF ran a competition that gave out free drift lesson to fathers . We were fortunate to be given the opportunity to introduce and teach two lucky winners the sport of Drifting.
This would not be made possible without the generous sponsors from YHI Yokohama and Castrol lubricants.
The day ended with an free open drift session to all the drifters present.
FederationD RacePOD Drift Series round 5 2nd September 2012
We were roped in judge for round 5 held at MIMC circuit in Malacca. The RacePod series is currently the most regular drift series here in Malaysia .
Participated by the finest drifters from Malaysia and also participants from Singapore and Indonesia, we are glad to be part of this series and will be taking a more active role in the future.
New lesson car: Skyline GTR 32 15th Sept 2012
Besides our trust worthy AE86 ,we have purchased a new platform for rental to be used during our Sync Optima Drift Academy lessons. And no, it is not a typo, but it is really a GTR 32. A rear wheel drive GTR running on SR20!! To add to the queerness , is this car is running on 15 inch wheels. I would have to say that this is the world’s first !
I’ve been testing it during SpeedCity’s saturday night sessions and I am glad to say that this car is ready to be rented! Please contact Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org for rental rates!!
