High Drama Kicks Off At Sepang

We was given a invitation to the Perdana Suite for the recent Japan GT Championship held on 23rd to 25th June 06.

What could I say more when we had the VIP parking and the pass in hand. Over the years, fans had always been treated with a legandary race in Sepang. They can expect the same thrill and excitement at this year race too.

Birdview from the balcony in the Perdana Suite.

What is a Perdana Suite or what is so special about the Perdana Suite? Perdana in Bahasa means Prime. When you put the Menteri which means Minister next to it, you got Perdana Menteri, that is Prime Minister. And a suite is like a rating for a hotel room in a 5 star hotel. Hmmm….. am I making myself confusing here? …which means, Perdana Suite is the place where the Prime Minister sit and watches the race and guests there are basically by invitation from the VIP, that is none other than *hush, hush!*.

Other than posh lounging, exotic buffet spread, highranking VIP’s sharing the same table as you and familiar faces standing next to you watching races from balcony…..

Drink Excel. Excel is good for you!!!

… enough said. I’ve been floating on cloud nine the whole afternoon. Even the blazing sun and humid weather is like a perfect windy weather walking on the white sandy beaches on Mauritius bay 🙂

One more show off stylo pic for the readers!!!!

You want more pic on Alex Yoong? 😉 Ain’t it looks like a *cough, cough* family pic? Muahahaahaaa….. beh tahan.

More birdview pic from the Suite’s balcony –

F1 race before GT race. After the positioning of F1 cars on their track, mechanics making final check on the cars before the flagoff. Something that you don’t get to see on teevee.

With its track measuring up to 20 meters width, the 5.543km Formula One track provides plenty of overtaking opportunity. Driver also have large run-off grass area, allowing them to return to actio if any of their overtaking maneuvers fail to provide the desired results.

I don’t understand why they have to haul the eight tyres in and out from the track. Not that the tyre will go puncture or melt by the hot tarred road. *ish..

Ok, ok. Enough of camwhoring. Was supposed to go for the pitwalk too but missed it by merely 30seconds 🙁 before the allocated time. We tried the outdoor grandstand. Spectacular view amidst the blazing sun and humid weather. Can’t even stand being 15min there and we have to yell for the air-con again.

You see, as a privillage holder of the Perdana Suite pass, we can enter just any room we like. Found this room for GT Club members. It is just above where the pit stop is and we had the closest pit view looking at the pit crew members changing their tyre, switching drivers and so on. The best part is one of the car (no. 13 Endless Golden Cruiser, if i’m not mistaken) failed to start up and you can see all the panic mechanics running around the pit with their equipment and busybody Japanese chick reporter broadcasting live there. Not forgetting the original Vroommmmmmmmm……… unfiltered ear-piercing sound when the cars zoom by. A totally different experience you had there compared to watching any live telecast from the teevee.

Just as when things started to heat up, the digi cam battery started to die on you (always!). Boohoo! There goes all the pretty japanese umbrella girl walking on the street. The crowd which is hugely boosted by the presence of the gorgeous GT babes is as popular with the presence of more than 45,000 spectators on race day.

I have more pics from the other camera but it takes sometime. So, tune in….
