Video from Round two of GRA Autocross on 15th January, 2006 held at KLCC. This is Julian Pang with Proton Wira 1.6 doing a pretty good run and scored 3rd place with the best time of 42.47s. Just a tad slower than the no. 13 Honda CRX, and no. 39, a Civic EG6. It is a no brainer that those cars have superior powertrain as compared to the 1.6 wira.
After the success of the first GRA Autocross at KLCC on last November, the organiser followed up with the highly anticipated second installment of the same event. This time with more participants and slightly altered course. I was there again as a spectator snapping pictures, perhaps I might take the dive and participate in the next round, we’ll have to see about that.

The results are posted here. Due to slightly longer straights and less turnings, the results are somewhat different from the previous event. For example, Julian Pang was not able to dominate with his Proton Wira 1.6 that is only equipped with the original engine.
Here are some photos I took at the event. I will be posting more photos in the gallery and some videos of the event in these few days. Enjoy!

Mickey doing his run, notice the taxi sign on top of his car
Video from Autocross KLCC, 20th November 2005. This old school Datsun Fairlady Z had made an almost decent last run, until the last 360 whereby the inadvertently spun out. Instead of continuing the run to the last bend, the Fairlady decided to make a few more donuts and hit a cone before gong out in a cheer.
It was unfortunate that I didn’t get his previous run where the car went wild on the course and spun 3-4 donuts knocking everything down and created a smoke so thick it probably caused a few spectator lung cancer. View the rest of the entry to see the video.
