The Drive In Automotive
KLRegistry F1 National Service
Watching F1 in HD at your favourite joint is always the best. Your drinks, your seats and your tv. This round at the Malaysian GP, we exchange those creature comforts to perform national service.
To parade the Formula 1 Drivers pre-race. Not that hard if you were in a modern sports car. But the requisite was vintage or classic. Meaning more than 20+ years old at least; and it had to be drop top. Challenge accepted.
Polished and serviced, they were recommissioned for an important task, out of their prime.
Practicing formation before the main event
Exhibition before the parade
South tracks get a very trick paddock at last. Control Centre, pits, air-conditioning and washrooms!
Game on. Forget the heat and osteoporosis
Jenson Button, die hard Brit supporters follow him everywhere
The Corvette was born for pictures
Probably the quickest on the starting grid, this round
Focm in the house
Tiniest car on the grid. Makes the MGA feel like a truck.
Shows over for us. Show starts for F1. By the time we sat down, it felt like we have a completed a GP ourselves. The scorching sun with drop top driving is no easy feat. Luckily all the cars and their drivers completed this challenge without any major incidences. But what an experience that was. Chance of a life time to ferry an F1 grid in front of the nation. Everyone was a champion.
And the Champion's trophy. Durian Cendol. Literally
