Some B-road fun up North

By Faiming_low on 03 Jul 2014 in Events, Motoring

Attached Image Enjoy driving? So do we. But Singapore is not the place for drivers to have fun with the limited amount of good roads to drive on. So I hopped over to Yong Peng, Malaysia with a few others to scratch our driving itch. Like most folks who go into Malaysia for drives, meeting in the wee hours of the morning is the most suitable so as to avoid the jam.
 
Attached Image So why Yong Peng? Because there is this stretch of B-roads nearby that was probably designed by people who love to drive. But first we had to hit the highway for an hour or so. For those of you who are wondering, yes, that's the Ignis Sport that I drove up to Penang a couple of months ago. Bittersweet feeling seeing it again.
 
Attached Image And then the we hit the B-roads. Jalan Paloh as it is named, is around 20km long.
 
Attached Image Plenty of twist and turns while going over crests with decreasing radiuses to challenge the keen drivers. Occasional potholes ensure those on coilovers have a good back massage. 
 
Attached Image Having a regroup here before we head for breakfast. 
 
Attached Image Nothing much is operational in the town of Kluang on a Sunday morning. Looking for somewhere to have breakfast was harder than we thought.

Settled for some Maggi Goreng at the Railway Station. Can't remember exactly how much it was but it was very reasonably priced.
 
Attached Image After feeding ourselves, it was time to feed the cars.
 
Attached Image Then it was time to head back. Same road but everything in reverse. 
 
Attached Image But before we end the day, we dropped by this empty area to have a bit of unrestricted fun.
 
Attached Image We mapped out a small route which simulated an autocross event and pushed hard. 
 
Attached Image But that wore out fast and we soon found ourselves doing silly stuff. Tandem front-wheel drive drifts anyone?

Attached Image How the area looks like from the outside. 
 
Attached Image With much balder tyres, we headed back into Yong Peng for lunch before the drive home.

The fishball noodle was surprisingly good or I was very hungry. Will be back for this when the next driving trip calls.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Very keen on knowing the exact location of the empty area? Please give GPS coordinates. You're welcome to PM me if it's private.

Looks like an abandoned karting track, is that what it is?

From Yong Peng to Kluang on J16 - how long it too?

 

Felt like half an hour. Not sure to be honest.

You will pass it on the way to Kluang on the J16. I don't have the exact location.

Seems like a small area for drifters.
