What's up guys. The year just started and the activities are just starting. Last night, I received word from Taka that there was going to be a run at 2am. During that time, I was at the Ampang Lookout so I decided to go. Once at the Touge Bistro, I met up the usual dudes. Alif Botak, The Quatros, and Aiman Civic R. Then I met these two new dudes from Kelantan. I asked more about them and it turns out it was their first time running Genting Sempah.

Not much to talk about except that for the first time this year, I got car sick while riding with Syawal. Straight up a good driver using every skill in the book. Weight transfers, heel toes, tuck ins, you name it. His hillclimb only took him 11 minutes.
After that, Kudut gave the idea to head to Bukit Tinggi. We gave it a try and it was also my first time to go up there. The corners and slope was quite an epic sight. When it comes to most beautiful, Bukit Tinggi made my pick.
Just like the Sempah hillclimb, the downhill run by Syawal was just as epic. But there was a little twist, just before the finish line, a truck took our side of the road. We hit a wet spot and Syawal's ride oversteered but he manage to save his ride. Right after that, we smiled and laughed, it was the perfect finale for the run and the whole year. We arrived at Gombak at 7pm with smiles on our faces. A great finale for a great year of action. Until next time, peace!

Ariel EF9 and Oreedo when I was hanging out at Juara Seafood next to the Wise Speed Autoworks in Subang. I arrived at 9.30am and met up with Syawal, Shalie TR, Azim, at the track. It turns out Ariel was renting out his Toyota Starlet that I tested out the night before at Wise Speed.
Botak Traffic and Azham were making their own lap times with a track tuned rally Impreza GC8. After a few runs, the Starlet faced minor problems and had to retire. Turns out there was something wrong with the connecting rods of the engine. The Impreza on the other hand had problems with traction. On that day, a lot of Subarus came out. The other cars that ran that day were and Integra DC5, A R34 Skyline GTR, A Renault Megane RS and Megane R26R and a Toyota Altezza.
