Supercars Do Their Bit

If you're into the exotics, then the Supercars for Charity event happening this Sunday at the Sepang International Circuit will be just up your alley.

The event, organised by the Porsche Club Malaysia, the Ferrari Owner’s Club, the SIC and the Force of Nature Aid Foundation, is open to the public and the full-day track experience is perfect for those wanting to savour a supercar ride and do their bit for charity at the same time.
Taxi rides on the supercars - which will include Porsches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis among the mix - are priced from RM300 for a Class 3 to RM1,000 for a Class 1 vehicle, per single ticket.

She challenges you to beat her. In a slalom competition, that is.For those wanting to do more for the needy, there are additional group, corporate and platinum packages to choose from. The charity rides are set to take place from 2pm to 4pm and 5pm to 6pm.

There's also a slalom challenge, organised by the Sepang International Drive and Race Academy (SIDRA), and for RM1,000, you get to drive a race-tuned Porsche Cayman S with a race instructor from the academy guiding you through the special course.

If that's not enough, Deanna Yusof has issued a personal challenge to any Malaysian driver – male or female – to beat her in a slalom competition at the event this Sunday. A regular in the annual Merdeka Millennium Endurance race (MME), Deanna is one of the guest drivers for the day, along with Alex Yoong, Tommy Lee, and Karamjit Singh.

For those not into the driving, there's still plenty of metal eye-candy to take in, in the form of a special display of rare supercars.

The event begins at 2pm and ends at 7pm, so there's quite a bit of time to soak it all in. All proceeds from the event will go to the Force of Nature Aid Foundation, in aid of Malaysian flood victims.

I got to drive a "Supercar" myself. My husband kindly took me to Thruxton Motorsport to test drive a car of my choice. I decided to try a Ferrari F430, and it was a sheer thrills from start to finish. The power of these cars is just insane. I would definitely do it again if the opportunity arose.
