Exclusive Go Karting Session with Media – 25 June 2010

A kart race might not be your cup of tea to de-stress. However, the adrenaline-pumping act worked just fine for Honda Malaysia team and a group of motoring media members.

In the name of pure fun, Honda Malaysia recently rounded up some enthusiasts from the automobile media at Sepang International Karting Circuit, and had an evening of competitive fun.

Attended by more than 40 media members, the pure-play-no-work event was just the place to let the hair down, unwind and chill.

Having said that, the participants did have an agenda in mind, which was to clinch home some form of title from the fun and yet competitive race, in the endurance style.


Below are the pictures with captions that would walk you through the race and event details of the night:
