Alfa Romeo Owners Club Malaysia & Singapore - Kuantan Family Weekend 2010
Alfa Romeo Owners Club Malaysia & Singapore - Kuantan Family Weekend 2010

Kuantan, the state capital of Pahang, served as the destination of choice for this year’s Family Weekend trip co-organised by the Alfa Romeo Owners’ Clubs of Singapore and Malaysia. Situated on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, it is known for its pristine beaches and spectacular sunrise views over the South China Sea.

Each Club was navigating its own route, travelling through a mix of highway and b-roads, with the town of Pekan, Pahang as a rendezvous and lunch point before proceeding on to the resort. At this point the convoy consisted of 25 cars including for the first time in the Clubs’ events, representing Alfa Romeo’s latest generation – the MiTo – which kept up well with the bigger capacity cars.

Activities for the participants included tele-matches as well as a visit to the local batik factory. Several participants also chose to explore the local surroundings on their own, taking in the various sights and sounds of the area. The last night in Kuantan was rounded up with a buffet dinner and presentation of the prizes for the winners of the various tele-matches as well as a lucky draw featuring collectibles such as posters of the 8C Competizione, Alfa Romeo cufflinks and socks.

Ever loving a good road trip, the next one is being planned by both of these clubs for this month to Hua Hin in Thailand as a precursor to an ambitious Centenary Celebration Tour of IndoChina in October. This Kuantan Family Weekend 2010 was made possible with the support of EuroAutomobile (authorised dealer for Singapore) and Duta Village Beach Resort.
