Artwork Of Pace Malaysia, A Decade On


I’ll always remember my first Artwork Of Pace occasion in 2014. I accepted the invitation to cowl the present from Asep Iskandar, the organizer, not actually understanding what to anticipate.

Up till then, Malaysia for me had solely been a vacation vacation spot, not a spot I had ever related to automobiles. Boy did I get a get up!


Each time I’ve returned to Artwork Of Pace, I’ve found an increasing number of in regards to the massively wealthy automobile tradition that exists in Malaysia. And yearly I come away extra stunned than the earlier 12 months.


In a approach, Malaysian automobile tradition jogs my memory of Japan. There’s loads of selection right here and other people aren’t afraid to comply with their very own concepts in an effort to create one thing distinctive.


There’s additionally an underlying respect of how sure automobiles are modified of their residence nations. You’ll be able to see this within the obsessive approach that many JDM automobiles are put collectively.


All the best way from kyusha, kaido racers and bosozoku-themed builds…


…Proper as much as probably the most sought-after fashions, and even time attack-inspired creations.


Then there’s the craftsmanship, which has has massively improved since I noticed these first few native builds in 2014. At present, the customized metallic work, fabrication and paint is nearly as good as will get wherever on the earth.


Nevertheless it’s the love that so many Malaysian automobile fans have for Speedhunters that retains me coming again. It’s overwhelming to say the least.

All I’ve mentioned thus far has associated to automobiles, however Artwork Of Pace celebrates all issues motorcycle-related too. Bike tradition is huge right here, and also you solely want to take a look at the parking space outdoors the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang when Artwork Of Pace is on to get an thought of it.


Going again to the variability, take a look at this pairing. Ford Mustang or Mazda RX-3 – which might you select?


I even got here throughout an Alfa Romeo Giulia with an iconic Nineteen Seventies Carabinieri livery. That is probably probably the most acknowledged classic Italian police automobile look, because it appeared in numerous tv dramas and flicks of the period.


For 2023, Artwork Of Pace had this gorgeous Toyota Celica Liftback because the fortunate draw prime prize.

The winner not solely took residence one of many sleekest Celicas of the KE40 technology, nevertheless it was customized painted in Mooneyes yellow and topped off with a set of iconic Moon Discs.


This 12 months I acquired to play decide for the Scorching Wheels Legends Tour, choosing automobiles that thought would make worthy Scorching Wheels die-casts. That was cool, however then there was additionally the customized Scorching Wheels space the place you possibly can take a look at the wonderful issues that native artists do with these 1:64 scale fashions.


Over the past decade, Artwork Of Pace has actually discovered its toes and grow to be a correctly established present.


It’ll be enjoyable to see how Asep and the workforce proceed to reinvent the annual occasion and hold the thrill flowing for the subsequent 10 years and past.


I’ve little doubt that Malaysian fans’ love for automobiles and bikes won’t ever cease rising and evolving, and that Artwork Of Pace will all the time present a excellent spot to showcase their creations. Till 2024, selamat tinggal.
