City To The Stars | Hillrunners of the Infamous Genting Highlands
Despite the numerous deaths and mishaps, it is still a popular destination for spirited drivers to just drive their cars for the fun of it. I personally have been and driven all the way to the top and back but the nervous anticipation is still present since one would know the risks involved. Under the cover of darkness on a Saturday night, we followed one group on their drive up. Rides varying from Proton Satrias, Honda Civic Hatchbacks, all the way to high powered machines like Honda S2000s, Nissan Skyline GTRs and the car I was riding in, a Mazda RX7 FD3S.
Even though it was only a fun drive, but one can sense the precision and concentration involved at the pace they are going. The group mostly driven their cars grip style and go for the best cornering line as possible yet they still have to slalom due to the heavy Saturday night traffic.
