Saturday Night Live!

The Northern Touge bunch were up for a run after sitting around our arses for too long. All of us gathered at our usual kiosk, Caltex, before heading up the touge. Soon & Bro, Ewe Jin, Benjamin, Daniel, and I were present for that night's session. We arrived at the dam soon after to a beautiful clear sky, Dan took a test drive of the Sunny to get a feel of the "Weber effect" and usual banter commenced, when TCM (my old buddies) arrived to join in on the chat.

Daniel mentioned that he'd seen a pal of ours performing at the Gurney roundabout, so we took heel and blasted downhill to a "ponna" lively roundabout.
Crowd was everywhere and cars and bikes alike stopped at the junction to watch this rare occasion. There are even some with chairs!
Hot laps, one after another, then tsuiso style chase with loads of tire screeching action. I salute those whom dare park along the roundabout and not flinch!
These guys were like the Energizer bunny and kept going...
And going...
And going...
The local favourite has arrived in his Iswara, and taking on all comers.
Which this green Wira felt obliged to take up.
But what's this? A cheecky bugger had decided to do it the wrong way...
And then in REVERSE!
Phew... Although I do not condone or approve of such activities, I have to say, these guys have balls and serious skill! If anyone needs a skidpad test driver, these guys will be the ones to call!
Soon and I watched on until 3.30a.m., which was when exhaustion got the better of us. Aging sucks... Does anyone know Benjamin Button?

Hey bro, a vague memory of it strikes me. Great to hear you drive and enjoy driving a GTi. It's an awesome car.

No, I hail from Penang as well, that's why I can go touge ever so often :)

We should meet some time.
