Happenings: Battle of The Clubs 2017 - Goodyear Malaysia Organises Car Club Challenge For Malaysian Car Clubs!

Goodyear Malaysia is currently hosting Battle of The Clubs 2017 for eight selected car clubs in Malaysia, featuring a series of fun team challenges, in search for the Best Car Club 2017. The challenge first started in early August 2017 and the “Time Attack” round for the event had just concluded. Participants are now gearing up for the next challenge known as “On The Road Treasure Hunt” across Klang Valley happening tomorrow (as I type), 17 December 2017.


The competition, which is based on a points system, consists of six different team challenges in total where the club members, or participants, are tested on their skills, knowledge, creativity, teamwork, and passion for their cars. 

As stated above, all of this started in early August 2017 with the Go-Kart Endurance Race challenge, followed by the Paintball Challenge, the Livery Design Challenge and the recent Time Attack Challenge. With VW Club Malaysia leading on the scoreboard, the other contenders will attempt
to catch up with the upcoming On The Road Treasure Hunt challenge this weekend and a final showdown which will be a public event, as Goodyear Malaysia crowns The Best Car Club of 2017.


As part of Goodyear’s Shared Values in caring for communities, this initiative represents the company’s continuous efforts to improve and better the wellbeing of local communities that host the company’s operations.

Take a look at some of the photos here. You can see a bunch of motorheads enjoying themselves silly. Winning isn't the key here folks. It is the experience. Winning is just a bonus and I have to hand it to Goodyear Malaysia for providing enthusiasts an outlet to try out something more exotic, i.e the Lotus cars, other than their more bread and margarine stuff that the club members usually drive.

SELANGOR, 12 December 2017 – The Battle of The Clubs 2017 organized by Goodyear
Malaysia is an exclusive monthly community gathering of avid car junkies from eight selected
car clubs in Malaysia, featuring a series of fun team challenges. Having just recently concluded
the “Time Attack” challenge, participants are currently gearing up for the next challenge called
“On The Road Treasure Hunt” across Klang Valley happening this coming Sunday, 17
December 2017.

The participating car clubs are VW Club Malaysia, Satria Society, Myvi Movement, Peugeot
Club Malaysia, Benzer Motorsports Malaysia, Club Audi Malaysia, The Rusted Jackets, and
Civic X Community. The on-going meet-up across hotspots in Selangor, over the span of four
months, has since received high engagement by the respective club members and their
supporters, with the sponsor anticipating to award The Best Car Club 2017 early next year
during its finale.

The competition, which is based on a points system, consists of six different team challenges in
total. The car junkies are tested on their skills, knowledge, creativity, teamwork, and passion for
their cars. The participants collectively enjoyed the “Time Attack Challenge” round the most so
far. The round four entailed driving the Lotus Evora 400S cars fitted with the latest Goodyear
UHP tire – Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3. Five drivers representing each team were put into an
exciting challenge to complete a course which includes slalom tests, 360ยบ turn, a sprint back to
the ending grid, and the ending with a wet braking test. Each club member’s time was tracked
and added to the total team time where the club with the shortest total time wins the challenge.
It was an exhilarating experience wrapped up in high spirits. This challenge has also gained
numerous positive feedback on the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3. The UHP tire’s superior dry and wet
grip, braking and handling performance impressed the drivers.

Being one of the largest series of local community events ever held by Goodyear Malaysia, the
project aims to promote engaging activities and networking opportunities for the car clubs. As
part of Goodyear’s Shared Values in caring for communities, this initiative represents the
company’s continuous efforts to improve and better the wellbeing of local communities that host
the company’s operations.

“Goodyear Malaysia recognizes that the car clubs’ community in Malaysia is large in numbers,
and in their commitment as well. While they have always been active in advocating their own
car brands, we are proud to offer the platform to bridge the gap between various car clubs for
them to share the same enthusiasm and exchange ideas within their local industry,” said Ben
Hoge, Managing Director of Goodyear Malaysia.

The campaign started in early August 2017 with the Go-Kart Endurance Race challenge,
followed by the Paintball Challenge, the Livery Design Challenge and the recent Time Attack
Challenge. With VW Club Malaysia leading on the scoreboard, the other contenders will attempt
to catch up with the upcoming On The Road Treasure Hunt challenge this weekend and a final
showdown which will be a public event, as Goodyear Malaysia crowns The Best Car Club of
2017.
