The Dakar Rally Experience will be in Kuching, Sarawak, for the first time this weekend (March 19/20). At the event, visitors will get to sit with 2-time Dakar Rally Champion Hiroshi Masuoka from Japan as he pilots a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (or Mitsubishi Triton) around the course at the Travilion carpark at high speed. The tough Mitsubishi vehicles will be subjected to jumps and bumps and punishing terrain and prove their capabilities.
Masuoka was the second Japanese driver in history to win the Dakar Rally in 2002 with the official Mitsubishi team in a Mitsubishi Pajero. He also won the event in 2003.
Visitors will also be entertained with nightly live concerts by local artistes such as singer-choreographer Choo Hao Ren, Sarawakian Hafiz (champion for Akademi Fantasia 2009), Claudia Geres, as well as local rock band Masterpiece.
Though there is no charge for the ride, it’s a good idea to pre-register. This can be done at a Mitsubishi Motors showroom in Kuching or by visiting www.mitsubishi-motors.com.my
The latest Mitsubishi models will also be on display and test-drives are available. The first 100 visitors (on each of the two days) to test drive any of the models will get exclusive Mitsubishi merchandise.
From now until 31 March, those who book and register a new Pajero Sport or Triton will also get a Sharp Aquos LCD TV, 2 years of free maintenance and a cash rebate (terms and conditions apply).
