Car training courses

Postby ohmz52 » Thu, 09 Jan 2014 6:38 pm

Do you guys know of any places in SG where they do track days?

Or something like training courses on how to drift and things similar?

Sepang is good but for nearer destination, you can try Pasir Gudang tracks in Johore.

do consider a V10 M5. you will not regret the E60... even if you're single.

I've never really been a fan of the M5, especially not the e60, if anything it would have to be the f10, but I'd have e92 m3 over that anyday.

E31, of all the cars I owned this was my favourite. Flawed in many respects I know particularly it's introduction at a time when fuel prices and fuel economy were the focal point.

Hell red 5 litre V12 remapped with speed limiter removed :D
