This is a belated post which i have wanted to blog about for the longest time but due to some pics problem its delayed.
Anyway, here it is. :)
Went to Malaysian Motor GP with my boyfriend and his friends a few weeks ago.
I must say that i do not know how to ride a bike & neither am i a huge fan of motorcycle.
However, i just tagged along for i just needed a place to getaway from s’pore.
The travelling is crazily long & not to mention that its during the wee hours.
We reached Sepang Circuit at approximately 7am whereby we have to queue for an hour for the circuit to be open.
The circuit is HUGE.
I really mean it.
It takes me around 15 mins to walk from one end of the viewing seats to the other.
The viewing seats are designed in an inverted ‘V’ shape which i thought is pretty interesting.
Probably for easier viewing purposes for the audience.
This event is actually pretty huge in Malaysia.
There are loads of people from all over the world coming together to suppost their idol racer.
Apparently as explained by my bf, these fans come for only 2 specific racers.
One of which i forgot his name, my apologies.
The other is number 46 VALENTINO ROSSI an Italian professional motorcycle racer!!!
He is uber cute. <3
So we stayed throughout the whole event waiting for the finale which is the showdown involving Rossi and the other racer.
It was really exciting.
The whole stadium was filled with the thunderous ‘vroom vroom’ sound from the modified bikes and whenever they rode pass by, you can sense the vibration.
The competition goes like this, the racers have to complete a total of approximately 20 rounds and the racer who reaches the finishing line first is the winner.
From what i have heard, apparently dear Rossi has been the Champion for 7 years in a row. ( please correct me if i get it wrong)
I’ve yelled my throat sore cheering for him all the way.
Initially he came in 8th place for the first few rounds, then he slowly caught up and came in 5th place.
Then the exciting part came.
The racer who is 4th in place skidded!
It was quite a scene.
That poor guy was so helpless.
He skidded and the first thing he did was to check on his bike.
He tried kickstarting his bike for a whole 10 mins but to no avail.
I could tell that he was really mad.
Millions of bikes zoomed past him and there he is standing in that huge field with a roaring sea of audiences cheering on his skid.
I give him my sympathy but still, if without his skid, there won’t be any climax would it? haha.
Dear Rossi then went up to 4th place.
And he remained there throughout.
HAHA. ok. it rained just before the competition started.
Perhaps he has this thing about fearing wet grounds.
I must admit its pretty disappointing but oh well, he did his best.
Anyway in my heart, he’s still the big winner!
I’ll be rooting for you Rossi! :)
Before the results are out, we hurried to the exit for fear of human jam when the event is over.
Trust me.. all i see is a huge sea of ants pushing each other to make their way through.
Thank god we came out earlier or we’re the ants.
Well.. that’s all about it for the Motor GP.
Enjoy the pics ;)
