Lotus XLR8 experience Putrajaya

                                      Lotus Owners Club Malaysia were recently invited to attend
                                a car show that is part a classic car show ,part autocross.  and all fun.

From the offical website. -
Among XLR8’s key attractions are:
• King of Clubs, Car Magazine Malaysia’s premier event, which kicked off successfully last year. The 2015 edition of King of Clubs will take it up a notch higher by opening participation not to just the European-car clubs, but also the Japanese-car clubs. Participants will be vying for top prizes and the ultimate bragging rights of becoming the best car club in Malaysia. To get there, they would have to complete motoring-based challenges such as Gymkhana, Precision Driving, Pit Stop Challenge, Racing Simulator, Remote-control Cars and Treasure Hunt. Each challenge will earn team precious points; team with the highest score of the day will earn the title King of Clubs.
• Tarmac Warriors, where our very own Flying Sikh, Karamjit Singh, will perform stunts in highly-tuned AMG cars. Spectators will be wowed by tyre-squealing, exhaust-firing manoeuvres that defy the laws of physics.
• Movie Icons showcases cars that have been immortalised by their iconic appearance in movies and television series. Fans can get up close and personal with Herbie, Mr. Bean’s Mini, Triple-X’s 1965 Pontiac GTO and the car that have fired many imaginations – the Knight Industries Two Thousand, a.k.a. KITT from Knight Rider.
• Asia Klassika is for the fans of vintage cars. They will get to see some of the rarest cars that have ever graced Malaysian soil. Whether it is American Muscle, German Power or British Suave, this classic car exhibition get fans longing for the golden age of motoring.
