4pm till late la!
to buy pit tickets, remember your reference number, and you should be able to get it at the track itself..
Go look under car talk, ther are pictures posted. The Thai cars are in! with parachutes! Fast enough for you?Originally posted by clorox@Oct 11 2004, 10:36
im from kelantan.i want to go see the drag event....i want to know about the car that most probably or confirm joining.
from kelantan to sepang ...500km journey just for the event.if no powerful cars i think not worth to go.
hope some body inform.
So... it was Blackie purging innocent bystanders... :DOriginally posted by acura@Oct 17 2004, 02:27
so who won...???
wah.. blackies car... super chun@!!! especially when the chicks came and tertekan the NOS haha!
i didn't stay after the super loud car went to drag....
i love the black bike!! what model isit anyway?
subang it terribly jam! /... stupid road block. cos of illegar racers.. round about ther.. from 3 lanes bottle neck to one lane got inspection..... saw a girl got arrested... oso dunno why... too sleepy... *yawn*
anyway, I got to the event just as the REDSun skyline burst into flames. haha... but kudos to the fire marshalls... very fast reaction leh.
BTW, the whole event was quite a mess. there's very little, if none, crowd control at all. As if they didn't have enough marshalls to go around but i saw like at least 5 marshalls directing people in the car park!! wrong place dudes!.. they should've been at the pit lane.
Also, about burnouts.... they should only allowed the cars to do burnouts at pit exits!! not at the pit lane itself. damn scary la to see the Thai RX7 and the VIS RX7 doing burnouts at pit lane... while hundreds of people standing just inches away!!
One more thing, What's with the DJ? they should've done a bit of homework and get the list of the cars that participate in the event, so that they won't give out wrong informations to the crowd... Pink RX7 from Thai? Please la... that car is a 200sx/180sx Nissan la. Oh... also the crowd favorite, the old skool 120y datsun with supra engine.... errr... which supra is that?? 1jz? 2jz? 1g?
Another thing that was missing, how did the calculate the timing? is it just lap times? or including reaction time? From the big screen, i can see the cars are like easing off on the start line and WOT on 2nd... 3rd... the rest of the gears. Suddenly, 9.077sec? is it really? Also, the times should've been displayed so that the crowd will know it. That nite, nobody knows anything until the DJ announced the times, and that was towards the end of the race. I wonder if there's anybody watching how the timing was done because for all the prize money given out, it should've been audited... i mean the timing. hehehehe
I don't mind the loud music, eventhough they should've mix it up a bit instead of just playing technos only, but please get the facts straight. Ok la, it's an event sactioned by AAM and FIA but i never knew FIA did anything for drag racing... someone please enlighthen me. I thought drag racing rules were always sanctioned by IDRC, International Drag Racing Committee. i think IDRC is a part of FIA but correct me if i'm wrong.
Personally, i feel that the event wasn't a success that it should be. It was all good until the implementation. BTW, please accept my sincere apology if I rubbed u guys the wrong way with these comments. Congrats to the organizers and those involved in making this event. There are certainly some rooms that need improvements.
It's just that for an event that's sponsored by some big name companies, it's nothing short of just another Drag race. The "after event" event that took place outside sepang was quite interesting until the blue lights started to flashed. hehehe...
