CONEMASTERS: GYMKHANA VACATION

Conemasters: Gymkhana Vacation!

Our friends in Songkhla, Thailand, organized a gymkhana event last weekend so we decided to go there and visit them before our insanely hectic racing season kicks off.

Thanks to Whiteline Southeast Asia and Lucas Oils Malaysia for supporting me on this trip!

Special thanks to Topfy and everyone at Top Auto Tire and P. Tee at T-Noodle House for their warm and generous hospitality!

Photo overload after the jump!

My buddy Ray from KL joined me and Jackson for this little road trip. This was Ray’s first time participating in a gymkhana and I think he’s hooked!

Handling by Whiteline. Their swaybars make my so much more stable and have helped eliminate almost all of my car’s bodyroll!

We brought some wine to a roadside restaurant for dinner and amazingly they had a wine opener there!

Lucas Oils provided me with engine oil, gear oil and this octane booster for this trip.

Conemasters: Gymkhana Vacation!

Perfect.

Conemasters: Gymkhana Vacation!

I can tell you without a doubt that this octane booster seriously packs a punch. I emptied a whole bottle into my gas tank and later at the event I nearly lost control of my car at the start coz it just bolted off at the start with a ferocity that it has never done before. Amazing what a little bottle can do!

Thanks so much to Whiteline Southeast Asia for coming to support us at this event.

The race went all the way until 10pm. In fact, I only got my first timed run at 9something pm. The organizers also cut down my number of runs, which I was not too happy about. :(
