Ignition.my-RCA Speed Challenge Series 2010

Published on September 2nd, 2010

The IGNITION.MY-RCA SPEED CHALLENGE SERIES was created to provide the real-life excitement of console-game racing simulations such as Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsports! Scheduled to take place at the Sepang F1 Circuit on 26 September 2010, it is a new twist of enthusiast circuit action that is sure to be exciting!

Targeted at tuned Street-spec cars and run in a format just like in the games, the Speed Challenge Series offers the opportunity for Street-tuned owners to bring their hopped-up rides to the safety of the Sepang F1 Circuit, and run a 3-lap Time Challenge in heats of 8 cars at a time!

Co-organiser Adian Yein of Ignition.my says, “Every other marketing industry places heavy emphasis on the ‘Playstation-Generation’, so the time is ripe that Motorsports embraces the culture too, and maximises the entertainment value for this age group. Almost all car-enthusiasts below 40 know what Gran Turismo is all about, so let’s take that excitement is bring it to life!”

Expect to see wide-arched, flame-spitting Nissan Silvias, Mitsubishi Evo Xs, and Subaru Imprezas on track with screaming, bewinged Honda Civic Type-Rs, Toyota Altezzas, BMWs and VW Golfs. It is hoped that such colour and variety will attract the new breed of drivers to the circuit, and get them off the streets.

“Just like any other sub-culture, the street-racers are misunderstood. They’re grew up racing modified street cars on the computer, and have now grown up and seek a playground. We’re providing it, and hope that they can make the next step to proper circuit and rally racing from here on.”

Entry fees are RM 350 per car, and Spectators have free entry. For more information, visit the website at http://ignition.my.

UPDATE: Please be informed that the BallsOut Drift event has been postponed 1 week to 10 Oct, as Tengku Djan has a sudden commitment to make an appearance in Jakarta on 3 Oct.
