The boys at the Art of Speed Malaysia recently held a meet in-conjunction with the final race of the Saturday Night Fever series at Sepang.
Art of Speed for those who do not know, is a group of like-minded oldskool automotive lovers that aim to bring the classic car & bike culture out in the open to all Malaysians.
Here’s a short viddy introduction to what the Art of Speed is all about
We met up with the guys at Awan Besar R&R @ Kesas Highway before disembarking on a comfortable cruise all the way to Sepang. There we were greeted by impressive, rare rides that normally do not prowl the streets of Kuala Lumpur.
As well as some good ol’ bugs!
Onward to Sepang!
When we arrived at Sepang to be greeted by wet and wild weather, washing down all the terrain to a muck of sludge brown. With that, we had to wait outside the gates for the parking area to be sorted out. As we waited, more and more classics rolled in to join up.
After about an hour of watching the sun go down, chit chats and a burnout by the big Impala, we finally managed to get up and enter Sepang’s support paddock. The wait was caused by a major flooding of our intended gathering spot, and now we had to share the lots with all the other race cars participating in the Saturday Night Fever series. Not a bad mix of vehicles in one place!
Even the eye-melting ones were present!
The classics were slated to have a parade lap around Sepang’s track, showcasing eardrum piercing Choppers, oldskool JDM rides, American muscles, and many more to wow the crowd.
A long tiring night, but an eye-opener for anyone wanting to know what kind of car culture does Malaysia have to offer. The night showed all the kinds of genres available in Bolehland; JDM rides, American muscles, oldskool classics, track-orientated machines, fast oil burning crotch rockets, big and burly cruisers, the flashy florescent flavours… you name it, the night had it. All in one place.
