December 3rd marked the day of the rotaries. RX-8 Club Malaysia collaborated with RX-7 Club Malaysia to host this spectacular event, where all Wankel powered vehicles gathered for a day out together. The event started early in the morning at 8AM in Puchong, where the cars gathered for a roll call prior to driving to Cyber Jaya Sports Arena, where the gathering was held. A total of more than 100 cars turned up in the event, making it the largest non-piston powered car gathering ever to be held in 2011.
The convoy group started their journey to Cyber Jaya at 9 AM. At 10 AM, they arrived at the food court in Cyber Jaya Sports Arena parking lot. Everyone sat down and had their chatter after driving a distance from Puchong. People were just chatting about their cars and how they love their rotaries. It was an enthusiastic bunch.
Members of the press and fellow photographers were invited to take photos of the models that were hired for the day. There were 8 girls present in the event and photographers were grouped into 2 groups where they are tasked to take photos of the 4 girls in each group.
At 10.30 AM, the MC for day, Joey Ch'ng who was also the committee member of the RX-8 Club Malaysia, gave a presentation speech to their club members, appreciating their attendance and giving support to the event on that day. A discounted sale of automotive related items and vouchers were offered for sale to the public. Ultra Racing chassis reinforcement items, Tom's sticker decal services discounts and Auto detailing vouchers were up for grabs.
