Asian Festival of Speed (A.F.O.S)

AFOS sparks on 14th May until 16th May, managed by Asian Touring Car Series. Drivers are professionals of varying backgrounds and mostly are highly experienced racers from around the globe. Skillful drivers and muscle machinery makes Touring Car second only to F1 in mass appeal. click on title for further details of ATCS.

rather than usual, i was in AFOS for a classical race instead of GT3 which latter is the  most popular race amongst.
not sure what car is this. driver from US, Michael Ricks. pretty cool classic car.
Mr. Bean signed up for the race too! and it cruises fast in SIC.
wasn't to my liking, cause i strongly believe this merely an old honda civic hatchback but classical. damn...
Mini dashes alongside Porsche 911 classic...as you can see, Austin Mini has no match for the barging 911.
again! not a classic car. just yet another old honda civic hatchback. not sure how ATCS determines the criteria of "Classic Car".
Porsche 911. there are plenty of Classic porsche in the race. not a big fan of Porsche but it is mighty fast for a Classic car
classic Jaguar in awesome racing stripes!
Austin Mini notching laps after laps without engine heat problem.
my favorite classical car of all, Alfa Romeo! it's the slowest car stooging across SIC but try enjoy its' awesomeness!
and wasn't sure what car is this, but the color does represent Lotus.
Rubbish. car. *opps*
2 Porsches racing each other to death...
excuse me!! Proton Saga??? but please. trust me, it's BMW.
another unknown classical car...
wrong tyre choice for the white Porsche, every turns even slower than the previous...
the pink panther, Porsche 911 classic. the fastest car on track, triumphed the classic car race!
and the old car lost to the classic, after 6 laps, the Honda Civic hatchback had enough of SIC, crushed out of the track and driver hits his early shower.
the end of line. Chequered.
Hello peeps! Risk deafening their ears with the those engine rolls.
chequered flag. that sums up the round 1, 10 laps classic car race.
my dad has one of these! Toyota Corolla. but since when my dad's car is a classic car?
and i heart this Mini Cooper! look at those shining chrome and paints! it's a killer!
above the podium.
immediately after classic car race, GT3 gets their marks, and these peeps putting numbers on the starting grid.
yes. there are show girls too. so pretty. but i chopped off their heads. *opps* 
with GT3's speed, you do need a disc-brake this BIG!
MYR 330 per day! interested?
the SIC heat caused first degree burn to the drivers especially within those tight suits...
too bad. beside a bunch of photographers, there's only 2 supportive audiences. how sad.
amongst the GT3. i heart this the most. Ginetta!
Defying Gravity! the British car is just gorgeous!
amongst 3 Ginetta, i love this color the most, although it came last eventually. why everything i heart don't need for speed?


admission to the event is absolutely FREE. so if you have nothing else to do and missed the F1 show, watch the Touring Cars! but next year then. so sorry...


*full Album* 


wish-list. NIKKOR 300mm F4 will do =D

The red #9 roadster is an MG Sprite. I've raced against my fair share of those. Not much power but they handle like a slotcar!

The other unknown red car, #181, is a Lotus Europa. Mid engine and this one appears to be heavily modified for competition. I watch them at Road America during the July historic races. Over 600 vintage race cars! Its an awesome site! "

Now we've just got the Lotus-a-like kit car and the white colour self proclaimed "Porsche" left unknown.

The white car doing the burnout is either a 924 or 928 Porsche.
