Ignition.my Saturday Night Fever Series Preview 25 Dec 2010

Published on November 26th, 2010

An iconic motorsports event of the 1990s, the infamous ‘Saturday Night Fever’ will be revived in spirit next year by Ignition.my. SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER SERIES will feature rounds every month and will be held at Sepang Circuit, with a introductory Preview Round taking place on 25th December 2010.

Taking experience from their earlier successful SPEED CHALLENGE event organised together with RCA of Singapore, the Series aims to create the real-life excitement of console-game racing simulations such as Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsports. With the addition and spectacle of night-time driving at the Sepang Circuit North Track, the Series hopes to generate a new twist of enthusiast circuit action and exhilaration.

Saturday Night Fever is targeted at tuned Street-spec cars and run in a format just like in the games, offering the opportunity for Street-tuned owners to bring their hopped-up rides to the safety of the Sepang Circuit, and run a 5-lap challenge in heats of 10 cars at a time.

It’s not just a speedfest either. Adian Yein of Ignition.my explains, “We want to fuse elements of ‘Fast & Furious’ with ‘Gran Turismo’ and throw in NASCAR-level entertainment value to create a rich, healthy motorsports entertainment activity for everyone to enjoy.” Ignition.my are looking at a hot-chick car-wash, booming music, booths selling motorsports apparel and accessories, and other forms of entertainment to keep the excitement running till late.

Look forward to seeing turbo-charged flame-spitting Nissan Silvias, Mitsubishi Evo Xs, and Subaru Imprezas on track with screaming, b-winged 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,” expresses Adian.

Ignition.my released the first 3 event dates, being 25 Dec 2010, 15 Jan 2011, and 19 Feb 2011. Action starts at 7:00pm and goes on till midnight, with spectator tickets priced at RM 10.00 for General & Mall Area, and RM 30.00 for Paddock & Rooftop Access which will be limited in availability.
