I took these photos when I was in Kinta City last evening. Most people were busy with the games over at the other end of the concourse. I think there were prizes up for grabs, that’s why.
Anyway, I did not bother with the games as we had to register and then wait for our names to be called. I just took these photos and ciao-ed.
There weren’t many people interested in the race car when I was around, at least less of a crowd than the auto show where the Jaguar XF was displayed in Ipoh Parade two months ago.
Even so, each time I was about to take a shot, people would come over at the other side that I inevitably captured them on my image as well but at least the security guard turned away LOL
Although I have been a fan of Formula One for years now, living in backwater Ipoh, this was the first opportunity I had getting close to a real Formula One race car. The car is larger than it looked on television. It was like a boat.
I have to confess that ING Renault F1 Team is not my favourite F1 team but heh, this was at good as it gets unless I head to Sepang during race weekend, so not complaints!
I also took a couple of photos from the first floor. I actually took a few more but deleted them because I think they were spoilt by balding heads. SIGH
Children had the chance to race against each other in remote control cars and I think there were prizes of scale car models to be won. There were computer games as well, though I could not see what sort of games they were, except for boxing. LOL
As you can see from these “aerial” shots, the crowd was small but I expect Kinta City to be more crowded on Saturday and Sunday when people usually spend the entire day there even when there’s no special activity, demonstration, roadshow or sale.
If you are in Ipoh and would like to catch the ING Renault F1 Team roadshow, see the F1 race car or camwhore with some ING Renault F1 leng luis, head over to Kinta City tomorrow.
