The 1Malaysia Autoshow Carnival 2011 is not merely a “show” but various competitions are held at this carnival, where vehicle owners have brought their cars or motorbikes, showcasing them and competing against each other. There are various categories, including spray paint, sub-woofer, in-car entertainment (ICE) and car sticker competitions, among others. Well, I am sure there are proper terms used for such competitions but since I am not in this field, I am clueless.
Besides competitions that I have mentioned above, there are also sprint tests and other bike racing competitions. Some of the roads in the area around Dataran Merdeka have been closed today for this event.
A live band started performing from 11.30am onwards. Also, Ladies Uptown, which usually starts business from 6pm onwards on Saturdays, started business early this morning, and just for today, vendors have moved to the field opposite Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh (MBI) building, near the clock tower.
