In conjunction with “Tahun Melawat Negeri Perak”, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club Klang Valley (AROCKV), in association with the Perak Alfisti Club (PAC) successfully organized an “Explore Race Tour” recently.

The event had Seri Malaysia Hotel, Ipoh, Perak as the base and the race was divided into two sectors with pacenotes providing route guidance.

The routes took them along challenging roads and through areas such as Tambun, Tg Rambutan, Chemor, Sungai Siput, Taiping and Kemunting.

The first sector took about four hours and the cars gathered at the final checkpoint in Dataran Lenggong. Not everyone was able to reach the destination without losing their way occasionally, but eventually everyone turned up.

The race tested the patience of the drivers and their navigators and those with families also had to have teamwork.

After a break of about an hour, the participants departed from Dataran Lenggong through Sector B. As expected, the current rainy weather ensured that progress was wet. In one section, the slippery road caused one car to have a minor accident and in the heavy rain, some teams took wrong turns through the kampungs. But it was an enjoyable experience for all the members and at the end of the day, all participants were treated to a gala BBQ dinner. Prizes were given out and a lucky draw was also held.
