Throwback/Fast 6 Movie Launch/Kuala Lumpur

Throwback/Fast 6 Movie Launch/Kuala Lumpur

This was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done … putting together the opening weekend activities for the launch of Fast 6 in Malaysia … it was an incredible experience and of course a great honour to be allowed to create a genuine “Fast & Furious” experience for Malaysian fans of the franchise.

Movie-goers who watched Fast 6 on opening weekend where we were could register for a ride in one of two cars (one was mine, the other was Wan’s awesome RWD Satria) … Everyone had a super good time, some of my friends like Remus Chang, Erwin Azizi, Blue Jackets, Tengku Djan and Adrian Cham also lent out some of their precious cars for display.

It truly was an epic event (every show was sold out on opening weekend) and I’d like to thank United International Pictures and the Summit KL for choosing to work with me and my team.

The End Of A Legend

The End Of A Legend

My favorite anime series Initial D has officially ended … This is the anime that has inspired and motivated car guys all around the world and made the price of a 31 year-old car skyrocket all over the world is over … And what is the last car that we see Takumi-kun driving once he’s done with his 86?

Impreza FTW

This Is Gymkhana – Launching In A Few Days!

This Is Gymkhana - Launching In A Few Days!

Yep! The new Conemasters video – “This Is Gymkhana” is launching in a few days.

It will be launched on gymkhana.com (yes, THE gymkhana.com that’s in all the news right now haha)

For those who don’t know, gymkhana.com is run by Joshua and Matt Martelli of Mad Media, and they are best known to car enthusiasts worldwide for being the directors of Ken Block’s Gymkhana Practice, Gymkhana 2 and Gymkhana 3 videos (which everyone agrees are the best in the series).

To have the Martelli brothers take an interest in what we are doing at Conemasters is an honor for me as I have an enormous amount of respect for how they have revolutionized motorsport cinematography. Yes, Ken Block was the star of the videos, but no matter how good the driver, if you don’t have a good director – you will look like shit (take Robert De Niro for example)

For this video, I wanted to show people what a real gymkhana event is like, and footage was shot at Round 1 & Round 2 of the 2012 Conemasters International Gymkhana Challenge. I wanted to show people that there are a lot of very talented drivers out there and not just in the few high profile videos that exist on YouTube.

Hopefully those who watch the video will get an idea of how much fun we have at every Conemasters event!

We couldn’t have done it without you.

So now the question is … are you ready for Round 3?
