Georgetown to Trang. 385kms We left Georgetown early in the morning via the old bridge and drove up country to the final time trial in Malaysia. A highly technical test, the “Fields of Athenrice” time trial was courtesy of the local community and it demanded intense focus and attention with no room for errors or […]

Georgetown, Malaysia. Rest Day. On Day 5 we zoomed into the island of Penang after crossing the longest bridge in Asia.. a 20km long gargantuan span where we put the Datsun to a speed test and went over 170.. in the process we overtook pretty much the entire field many of whom I am sure […]
Day 5: Kota Bharu to Georgetown 450km Picture this: A closed-road, full police attendance, smooth tarmac and endless curves that would put Italian sirens of yesteryears to shame. Add to it a casual conversation and budding friendship with the Sultan of a country, throw in a near perfect race in the timed section, and cap […]
Cameron Highlands to Kota Bharu. 440 kms A rather bland day racing wise.. The recent devastating monsoon floods in Malaysia swept away our racetrack, the ferry slipways that we were to ship our cars across, and parts of the countryside. Made for an insipid day for racing but allowed time to take in the stunning […]
Kuantan to Cameron Highlands. 430 kms Another gorgeous day to be out and about racing with a collection of uber cool Classics through the jungles of Malaysia leading then to a mountain range involving a 76km alpine climb. Ended at the hill station and tea plantation town of Cameron Highlands aka the Darjeeling of Malaysia. […]

It rained until noon and gave a new challenge and dimension to our rally and endurance race sections. Unfortunately one of the Bentley’s could not get enough grip and went off the […]
After two intense days of repairs we finally qualified and had a memorable send off from Raffles Hotel. Placed overall 10th out of 70 cars in the plantation run rally and our timing was 2nd overall (Yes!!) on the entire 450 odd km day long endurance race to Desaru, Malaysia. We just went for broke […]
What a Day!!! Collected the car from the Port and found we had a stowaway rat that ate up bunch of the wiring while it was in transit from LA to Singapore over the last two months!!! Fixed what we could and keeping our fingers crossed that it was just the rear and front light […]
Landed in Singapore and trying out local delicacies to ‘tune’ our bodies before the race starts on Sunday! Oh the tough things one has to do preparing for these ‘endurance’ races.
