I was at SSO 1.6 at Shah Alam as a spectator. As opposed to GRA Autocross events, the course at SSO is much longer and faster, hence slightly more dangerous. The following pictures illustrate how risky autosports can be, and why it is important to race only in controlled situation like this.

It happened as the Kancil was coming to the first big left turn at high speed. As the driver started turning the car, the 2 left wheels started to lift off the ground, and momentum just carried and toppled the car 270 degree, damaging both side mirrors and smashing the windscreen. Luckily the driver appeared to be unhurt and in good spirit.

    Hi KY,

    I see you capture the pics from the slopes.

    Kancils due to their narrow track , high centre of gravity when combined to highly grippy tyres are prone to flippin.

    BTW Though you minght wanna know the offcial name SSO has been changed to R3 Time Attack 1dot6

    Cheers
