blogentry-133713-0-06104300-1535707341_thumb.jpgWith the derestricted 919 Evo that is based on the three-time Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid, Porsche broke the Spa-Francorchamps lap record past April.

 

However, that record didn't last long as three drivers lapped the Francorchamps circuit during this past weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix faster than the 919 Evo.

 

According Motorsport.com, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who clocked the fastest race lap at 1:41.501 managed to beat the Porsche's 1:41.770 lap record. Kimi Raikkonen and Mercedes-AMG's Lewis Hamilton also managed to go faster than the 919 Evo over the weekend.

 

 

While the 919 Evo's lap record at Francorchamps circuit was short-lived, its record at the Nurburgring will likely stand for much longer as Formula 1 cars don't test nor race there.

    The end of CB does not stop PMDs from riding on the road

    With the end of the Circuit Breaker measures, more people have resumed working, creating more traffic on our roads. But that has not stop this rider from riding recklessly on his Personal Mobility Device (PMD) in Sembawang. As reported by SG Road Vigilante, the rider can be seen overtaking a car that is moving away from the traffic lights before keeping up to speed with it. In fact, the video which was shot on the 4th of June, showed the rider overtaking a motorcycle in the next lane. Judging from the 20 seconds plus clip, we reckon he could have been doing twice the legal speed limit of PMDs (25km/h). Naturally, netizens were quick to slam him... Should we be tolerating this? Watch the video of the PMD rider here! 101385818_2673239402892083_8980883442018037830_n.mp4

    What to do with neighbours who install loud exhaust systems for their cars

    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! If there's something unbearable like the loud exhaust from an RX-8 (I think it’s an RX-8), who you gonna call? LTA! LTA takes your complaints seriously In a post uploaded on SG Road Vigilante, a video and various images of 2 LTA officers checking out the undercarriage of an RX-8 has gone viral. Here's the link to the long video (might take awhile to load because it’s 4mins+ long, I suggest skimming through the video). The story behind this Apparently, a "pek cek" (exasperated) neighbour could not take the sound of the car’s exhaust and made a complaint to LTA. The neighbour even left a note for the owner of the car. Online Chatter I can feel the passion from this comment. Very interesting plot twist. I think the neighbour will have to lan lan suck thumb, wear earplugs.  Err. LTA stands for Land Transport Authority. If you want to complain Have a neighbour with too much money and owns a car that disrupts the peace of the neighbourhood? Call LTA @ 1800 2255 582 The officers will come down to investigate in no time.

    Mitsubishi Lancer and Audi TT survive one close shave!

    Now that is one close shave. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page, an Audi TT failed to stop at the give way line, nearly crashing into a Mitsubishi Lancer Ex which had the right of way on 29th of April  Eagle-eyed readers would have definitely spotted the P-plate sign on the Audi, signaling to us that this might just be a rookie's honest mistake. In our opinion, we thought the camera car would have gotten a larger shock, seeing the Lancer swerve into his lane along Sengkang West Road. On another note, should the Lancer have slowed down instead of (recklessly)accelerating into the camera car's lane?  Let us know in the comments below! 94921823_310296959954310_3878032568351719424_n.mp4

    Mitsubishi Evolution driver gets praises for his parking offence

    Someone has spotted this chrome-wrapped Mitsubishi Evolution 9 MR parking at some motorcycle lots and sent it to SG Road Vigilante. The photo, which was taken on 30th of May 2020, obviously shows the Mitsubishi Evo occupying lots intended for motorcycles. You might be wondering why we are sharing this with you as HDB parking offences are not that big a deal as it is a common occurrence. In fact, we reckon most of us should have some form committed parking offences before and simply sort out our mistake by making an appeal for the parking offence. What is interesting however, are the comments on this photo on SGRV's facebook post, there were more netizens praising how cool the Evo looked or how rare the car is instead of the usual slamming and shaming comments. Don't you love our local car community?
