Astro Digital Publications, publisher of nine print magazines and 17 e-magazine including the noted motoring magazine CAR MALAYSIA, is organizing the XLR8 event, two days of motoring activities and display of the world’s most desirable vintage and sports automobiles, as well as iconic cars seen in movies and television series.
Taking place at Putrajaya Pullman this weekend on 3-4 October, XLR8 will feature key attractions including themed displays such as King of Clubs, Tarmac Warriors, Movie Icons, and Asia Klassika. The Movie Icons section will be particularly interesting as iconic vehicles made famous in the cinemas and television such as Herbie, Mr. Bean’s Mini, Triple-X’s 1965 Pontiac GTO, and KITT, the talking car of Knight Rider.
In King of Clubs, members of various motoring car clubs will pit their skills against each other a series of challenges Gymkhana, Precision Driving, Pit Stop Challenge, Racing Simulator, Remote-control Cars, and Treasure Hunt. With bragging rights at stake, teams earn points from each challenge, with the highest-scoring team of the day earning the title King of Clubs.
Motorsports fans will be treated to the sight of rallying legend Karamjit Singh performing stunts in Mercedes-AMG vehicles, whilst classic car lovers can get their fix in Asia Klassika.
