Auto-City Carnival

As the Scav man has promised.. Here are the pics from my short visit to Juru's Auto-City Carnival with Northern Touge.
I'm getting work done on Silver so I hitched a ride with Fer in his turbocharged monster and arrived to the roaring exhausts of 2 FD2Rs doing a demo lap around the Auto-City premises.
As the short race stint was done, we moved on into the main gallery to check out what's on display. We were missing Monster Workshop's (from Ipoh) cars, but heck there were these offroad time attack hellraisers on display!
Where there are cars, there will definitely be leggy beauties from the other gender present. That's why guys keep buying car mags now innit?
Super wide Beemer patrol car with matchingly clothed beauty alongside.
A little later in the afternoon, we were all treated to a couple of demo laps from some of the awesome machines on display. Here's the safety Toureg taking the initial initiative to ensure the "circuit" is clear of all obstructions.
These two are undoubtedly the only two display cars that went all out to make a fast lap.
I love this Celica... Psst... It's rear lamps are from the MkV supra!
Inspiration??? Hmm...
The last car in the line-up with the contender, whom was 1 lap ahead, right behind.
Ass shot... The Marlboro EvoVI in pole position is hunting down the wide-ass 350.
I was swimming in my trousers, so we went into the gallery area again to visit our buddies at Toms' Sticker where they had this awesome and intricately copied "Takumi Fujiwara" (from Initial D) replica on display.
Naza brought every FI enthusiast's wet dream along with every NA petrolhead's fantasy along to grace the event.
Finally, as we were about to leave, the MC announced that a GT car will be doing a few demo laps to our amusement.
The Thunder Asia GT Car was sublime and so low it could've scooped ant poop off the pavement. But the sound, oh-my-god, the sound was just awesome!!!
The driver then stepped out only to be fledged by the GT Queens present that day for a short photo op.
Whilst everyone was crowding the front, I couldn't help but sneak behind the lines to get another.. ass shot!
BHP held a little go-kart "pump and race" contest which out very own VictorGR took the top podium finish home. Check out his helmet head and that's Joy next to him btw. Congrats bro, on both the prize and the chick. Cheers!

I went home still stunned from the audial blast of Thunder Asia's GT Car. A quick surf on the net showed they were racing either an Ultima GTR or an Ultima Can-Am. Either of which are powered by Chevy small block muscle. These cars come spartan without electronic aid, ABS, traction control, power steering, and not even fuel injection! Which explains the super loud burble from the carb-fed V8.

I loves it... I wants it... I... I... Urgh! I hate Thunder Asia!

Hey Kevin, too bad you didn't give me a call. We would've had a great lap.

I'm glad you found the touge dude. It really is a fantastic run, only if you'd brought your birdy.

Let me know next round you're up here.
