M.A.C Kuching 12~14 Aug 2016

Posted in Uncategorized on October 3, 2016 by Stanley Carter

Last year I was the only driver from Sibu to compete in MAC Kone Attack round along with 4 350z friends from Bintulu, this year however, the number of participants from Sibu have grown exponentially, altogether Sibu and Bintulu we now have 12 cars joining the convoy to Kuching on 11 Aug’16, however, majority were in it for the  ‘Display’ category only, as for the Kone Attack contenders, only 5 of us have registered (3 from Sibu and 2 from Bintulu).

As always, S.A.S is the main party behind this annual auto event, and this year has got to be the toughest for them thus far, they’ve been facing a whole loads of crappy obstacles in getting this year’s MAC rolling, to sum it all up, they’ve changed venue more than 3 times, reschedule the date 2 times, all of us from Sibu and Bintulu are just glad that they managed to still get the event going no matter what, whoa…. what a relief….

But all that last minute changes do come at a cost, the scale of the event was greatly toned down due to budget and venue constraints, while some of our sport car owner friends were a bit underwhelmed by the whole thing since they were really looking forward basing their impression from last year’s success at iCom Square, those of us who’re more interested in the actual Kone Attack event were not affected much, Kone Attack was still going on at full blast, the great sense of nervousness and excitement was still very much flooding all our senses, it was simply awesome!

BCF Autoshow on 23 July 2016

Posted in Uncategorized on October 3, 2016 by Stanley Carter

BCF had its first ever autoshow held last year just right outside of the door steps of Wisma Sanyan, it was considered a success, and this year the organizers have approached us to see if we can squeeze in some drift demo shows in between, to which I answered immediately: No F*cking Problem!

13667995_10157174563800261_5166072101650642690_o

While last year the weather was great, this year’s autoshow was plagued by constant heavy downpours, which greatly affected the overall crowd and atmosphere, but for us drifters, the drift demo was never an issue despite the pretty slippery road surface though, anyways, it’s the FIRST for Sibu finally, and rest assured there’ll be more to come in the coming months, so stay tuned…

July 2016: More Sibu & Bintulu Drift Madness

Posted in Uncategorized on October 2, 2016 by Stanley Carter

It’s 1 month before the annual MAC Kuching again, this year I’ve been planning early and just to get everyone hyped, we’ve arranged some impromptu training or should I say… practise sessions for the Sibu and Bintulu participants in Gymkhana/Drift, just to get ourselves ready and well prepared for the big event next month!

Again, pictures talk!

10 Jul’16: Sibu Gymkhana/Drift practise

It is at the 2nd quarter of 2016 that I’ve met 2 newcomers in the Sibu drift scene, it was very fortunate that both of them are really serious in the sport and the rest is history, both of them are young, single and very energetic, I’m excited to guide them to the right path and looking forward in seeing how they progress in the near future!

Here’re some videos of the Sibu Gymkhana/Drift practise sessions:

After the Sibu sessions, we’ve proceeded straight to Bintulu again the very next week, damn we just don’t stop!

28 May~4 June 2016: Bintulu-Miri-Brunei Trip

Posted in Uncategorized on October 2, 2016 by Stanley Carter

Had a holiday trip with my in law family members and we travel in 2 cars, 1 of which is my own Charmant, although it was intended to be a relaxing family trip, but I just can’t help but to squeeze in some drift action in between to quench my thirst for some sideways action, haha!

Anyhow, I’ll let the pictures talk!

1 Jun’16: Bintulu Drift Boleh!

After me and my in law family had our funs at Bintulu, we departed to Miri, and while we’re 2/3 on the trip, my Charmant decided to break down…again just like the very old times, I’ve called up my good friend Johnny Yong whom is now working on his own business (Ceramic Pro) in Miri, he came for the rescue without hesitation, his deep knowledge and experience in 4age have saved me numerous times in the past, and that day was no exception, in the end I managed to drive my Charmant safely to Miri in one piece, all thanks to him. Good to be catching up with you again old friend!

13336095_10156956407005261_1552929763591646268_n

3 Jun’16: Long time friend, Johnny Yong!

After some long needed catching up with Johnny, I’ve made a visit to the infamous Go-Kart track of Miri the very next morning, I’ve been wanting to visit this track for such a looong time and I’m glad I’ve achieved half of my dream, if you ask why only half? …. well… it’s the fact that the gates are bloody LOCKED god damnit! I was soooo tempted to break open the gate and just let my Charmant go loose in that beautiful little track, definitely would be very fun in some 2nd gear actions!  Anyways, not being able to drive in it after making such a long journey from Sibu, was definitely my BIGGEST disappointment in this trip!

4 Jun’16: Special moment for me, finally reached Miri Go Kart Track!

12 February 2016: New Wheels…Finally!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 2, 2016 by Stanley Carter

Been eyeing at this local wheel maker from Malaysia for quite some time and finally made the decision to pamper myself and my Charmant right before CNY, got this Atara Racing Cengkih 14″x8jj at less than RM1,500 delivered to my very door step, you can’t ask for any cheaper than that!

12640255_10156486723185261_1186874775664060165_o

Finally some proper wheels on my Charmant!

The wheels didn’t fit that perfect though, as I faced some issues with clearance, but that was temporarily resolved with a set of front spacers installed, looks kinda weird but hey, as long as it functions fine, I’m all cool!

23 January 2016: Bintulu Gymkhana/Drift Scene Blooming

Posted in Uncategorized on October 2, 2016 by Stanley Carter

The momentum from 2015 doesn’t stop and with my persistent enthusiasm, me and my new friends jump started 2016 with a bang in Bintulu, we’ve established a small convoy from Sibu to Bintulu and had an awesome 2 days Gymkhana and Drift session with the locals, so much fun, so much heat and so much satisfaction in burning rubbers via sideways style!

12525671_10156420489025261_5915382595428691981_o12605370_10156420487735261_2798407459563797466_o12615242_10156420522970261_7843442600184045137_o-112493478_10156420523235261_4212347604253040811_o12376391_10156421028450261_3597761707855710817_n12548962_10156423773375261_4221935257478024319_n12439553_10156423811205261_7104587121857920749_n12592471_10156423810245261_7133532388583190646_n

At this point of time, majority of us from Sibu have started to realize just how much better the scene and venue here in Bintulu in terms of drift, not only does the surface works way easier to our tyres, but the runoff zones are all flat grass, which is way safer compared to Sibu, there’s no problem here going 2nd or 3rd gear drifts, flat out!  More exciting moments to come…

2015 Recap after MAC

Long overdue update eh? well I’ve been way toooooo busy nowadays, it just so happens that I’m sorta free at this particular late morning of a beautiful but hot Sunday (2/10/16) that I felt that this blog site of mine is in desperate need of a recap update, so let us begin with what has happened to my drift and Charmant’s adventure after the Kuching MAC event shall we?…

As you can see, the Gymkhana/Drift scene in both Sibu and Bintulu started to pick up soon after the Kuching MAC event, met a whole lot of new friends in both Sibu and Bintulu of course, this is just the beginning, and 2016 is starting to get much more exciting in terms of Sarawak motorsport scene…

Now to end this post, check out some youtube videos of the above mentioned sessions:
