Well, there is not much to say. But since everyone is “washing hands” and pursuing other ventures. It is sad to say that today is the era of MTN(Malaysian Touge Network) & TOUGE-G… so guys… any updates on the Malaysian touge scene… it is advisable for you guys to bookmark those ultra hot Facebook links! 😀 tataa!!
Here’s a footage by Kudut of last Sunday’s Touge session 😀 enjoy guys!!
Just a brief write up. I’ve decided that Touge-R should have a run since its last hiatus on an event in Bukit Putus. Thanks to Kudut for his effort inviting other touge friends. Well, I met up Napi with his Satria GTi and headed to Hulu Langat. There was a slight traffic jam as the Malaysian Prime Minister is having his Election Campaign. Anyways, by 11 we are already arrive at hulu langat mosque. Seeing the others from gombak & rawang arrived earlier on the day.
The uphill is lead by me (Shalie) and I composed my driving tailgating the superbikers. It was fun following them. Kelawang is very forgiving for my rubbers which has only about 30% of thread. despite that we did make a stop on kelawang uphill startpoint. I gave kudut a time gap for him to record a video. later on i continued my uphill driving. I’ve been followed close by Taka from Touge-G & Chuck Jones. They are well talented drivers. Well at an apex there was water runner across the road. My car is partially grip and when it hits the water the rear skids out. I managed to countersteer and input more throttle to gain grip and traction. Phew! a close call and it has been ages since I did that back in the old days in kelawang nightfall rain cruise with KANSEI. Then we stopped at kelawang uphill endpoint near the border.
As usual I gave Kudut his time to record the vids. The Negeri Sembilan side is sort of highspeed turns and combination of sharp bends as well. I overshoot the shop where the bikers usually hanged out. Too fast I guess! Anyways, after having a drink and some chat. We headed home and the others headed to Genting Sempah for another run. The weather wasn’t that good on the way home. Slippery and the rain holds back the speeds of everyone. Taka seems happy with the rain :p anyways, thats all for my brief report! 😀

Pejabat Tourism Malaysia Negeri Sembilan (TMNS) bersama-sama dengan Starfresh Agropark dan Wheelspin Event Management sekali lagi telah mengambil inisiatif bagi menghidupkan kembali Jalan Lama Bukit Putus yang semakin sunyi dan kurang digunakan dengan menganjurkan acara Bukit Putus Hillclimb Track Day.
Bukit Putus Hillclimb Track Day ini pada dasarnya dianjurkan bertujuan untuk memperkenal,mengalak dan mempromosikan laluan lama Bukit Putus sebagai satu trek bertaraf antarabangsa bagi acara sukan permotoran. Keunikan selekoh dan laluan yang mengujakan dilihat mampu memberi cabaran kepada para penggemar sukan permotoran ini yang mana gaya pemanduan dan tunggangan memerlukan ketahanan dari segi mental dan fizikal.
Penganjuran acara seumpama ini juga diharap mampu untuk memberi peluang kepada pelumba haram bagi menzahirkan bakat dan kemahiran mereka dengan cara yang lebih selamat dan terkawal sekaligus mampu untuk mengurangkan kes-kes lumba haram.
Seterusnya,program ini juga mensasarkan matlamat untuk menjadi satu titik pertemuan dan medan pengkongsian ilmu diantara para peserta dan pemandu kereta lumba professional.Mereka juga mampu dilihat untuk menjadi satu ikon kepada pelumba haram,untuk pertama kalinya,para peserta yang terdiri daripada penunggang motorsikal dan pemandu kereta akan merasmikan trek lumba sepanjang 3.5 km di Bukit Putus.
Dan kini dengan adanya inisiatif dan usaha seperti ini bukan sahaja mampu untuk menaikkan kembali nama laluan ini bahkan mampu membantu menarik ramai pelancong dari dalam dan luar negara seterusnya memperkenalkan negeri adat perpatih ini kepada para pelancong.
From our words. This is the 3rd Uphill event since ignition.my Pioneer Balls Out & Bukit Putus King Of The Hill Charity Challenge By Traffic Magazine Online. I should say this is one heck of an event. Pictures says a thousand words. With Pre-BPTD BBQ with a rally enthusiast and a co driver, known as Cikgu Rafi in Negri Sembilan provided us with some delicacies as celebrating our attendance from as far as Johor Bahru of the Malaysian Touge Network meet. We are very supportive with the event. Well, we did have some minor runs for the night 🙂 For the day, Shalie drove a friend’s Proton Satria GTi 1.8 and has no problem with the car. He did not enter because of some financial problems. Azraie and Allen Aznan are the ones which run the night event to be smooth n flows nicely. Kudos to both of them!! 😀 Last But not least. TQ Azraie for printing the limited stickers of TOUGE-R 😀 Touge 4 Life!! 🙂
Thank you touge-G official especially taka… Enjoy guys!!
So the founder of TOUGE-R is already plus a year… hmm, maybe he shud slow down or get more active in the touge scene? god knows where TOUGE-R is heading. May the future holds for the better folks!
It was an old video during the time when my car was Black, without coilovers and with good wet tyres… I missed the day… 😦 but My wipers screwed up and Azuri managed to overtake me severely… hail the rain master 😀 Burn was bullied by Azuri and after being overtaken, Azuri chased me… sorry for the poor quality and the video is incomplete… 😦
Well, its been a while since the last event. I did manage to enter the 1st one. I’ve prepared my blue satria for this coming event. It is RM120 before yesterday and RM150 after 6th October. The event is mainly on touge course. They have decided to add on drifting, downhill and tandem drifting or touge. Which includes 2 cars per run(batteru). But nevertheless, The event has been published on issue 51 of GILA Kereta magazine. So if any of you guys are interested to join the fun, kindly visit:-
And the pics gentlemen…
Since I’ve started my training. I rarely went for night touge sessions. Maybe due to the changes of my sleeping pattern. I don’t touge in a sleepy state as driving at night needs lots of concentration and silly mistakes may end up bad. So I would like to apologize to TOUGE-G as many invitation has been declined. Its hard for me to stay awake till 5am. 2am is the most i can take. Later than that surely i’ll have a problem keeping up to myself. I’ll make sure next night event I’ll sleep in advance to cover the night fun coming up… 😦
