PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT ROUND 2 OF MEGALAP CLUBSPRINT 2013 HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY POSTPONED TO THE 2ND JUNE 2013.
Due to the announcement on the 10th April 2013 that polling for the 13th General Election for Malaysia will be held on the 5th of May 2013, we the Organisers have made the decision to postpone Round 2 of MegaLAP ClubSPRINT 2013 to the 2nd of June 2013.
Our friends at BMW Motorrad (Thanks Fazli!) and Sepang International Circuit have been graceful to fully support this change.
It’s always been Ignition.my’s intentions to provide affordable motorsports for everyone, thus for 2013 MegaLAP Time Attack is evolving and we’re going back to grassroots and the masses.
Introducing the MegaLAP ClubSPRINT Series, which will be a Time Attack format event for Car Clubs/One Make and limited to Street Tyres. We invite all interested Car Clubs to get in touch with us, to create a category just for your individual group of vehicles. Minimum entries per make/model is 10 cars for trophies up to 5th place!
The original ClubSprint NA and Clubsprint VTEC/FI categories will continue to exist with a minimum of 8 starters, but the focus is on the Car Clubs/One Make. We really want more people to get started in motorsports.
The earlybird Entry Fee is only RM 350 (plus RM 100 transponder deposit) up to 2-weeks before the event. Normal Entry Fee is RM 380 (plus RM 100 transponder deposit).
Confirmation/Registration by payment on first come first serve basis. Slots are non-refundable but can be transferred or deferred to the next Ignition.my event.
Round 1 is confirmed, and the Regulations are being drawn up and shall be posted before Christmas.
Several Car Clubs are already showing big interest, and we’ll list these down as they can confirm. Tentatively: Altezza, BMW, Jazz, Fiesta, Lancer GT, Volvo.
If you or your Car Club is interested and would like to know more information, please do contact us: email@example.com
We’ve seen sufficient demand for a category catering to the increasing prolific CVT gearbox for street cars, and Auto-gearboxed cars in general.
Although not generally the performance gearbox of choice, many OEM car manufacturers are coming out with CVT gearboxes to enhance the mileage of their vehicles, but this has of course not hindered the enthusiasts for wanting to do more with their everyday drives than was originally engineered for. There are some pretty exciting cars out there which run CVT gearboxes including the Lancer GT, Inspira 2.0, the very pretty Honda CR-Z and popular Jazz, Mitsubishi Colt, and a couple of Audis amongst others.
As per the category name, normal Automatic Transmission vehicles are also permitted. Honda Civic 2.0 AT, or perhaps Altezza RS200 AT or RX8 AT anyone??
As this is the last round for MegaLAP 2012 we’re introducing this new category with the following regulations:
2-LITRE ENGINE CAPACITY
The limit for engine capacity is 2-litres. This caters for the majority of CVT gearbox engined vehicles, and keeps competition tight.
NATURALLY-ASPIRATED OEM ENGINE ONLY
For this preview round of the new category, it’s limited to Naturally Aspirated engines only. Hybrids permitted, but no forced induction or laughing gas (NOS). Original OEM engines only – so no K20A conversions into a Civic 2.0 AT please!
REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW so head on over to our nearest Registration Agent to get in the game!

Each category will then be given 2 x 25 minute runs, in alternate sessions e.g. Session 1 and Session 4, or Session 2 and Session 5, or Session 3 and Session 6.
– Don’t go out as soon as the session light turns green. Give it about 5-6 minutes, then head out and do 2 flying laps, and make them good ones!
– PG is notoriously hard on tyres.. but only if you drive like a dick! Carry a bit less speed into turns to avoid scrubbing your front tyres and understeer, focus on a clean entry with late turn-in and power-out on the exit
– Turns 1, 5 and 6 are the hardest on your front-left tyres. Do not scrub at these turns, load them up gently on turn-in and be smooth

LAI WEE SING AND TEAM KAZAMA POWERED BY DRIVE M7 SET FASTEST EVER OFFICIALLY RECORDED STREET CAR LAPTIME AT PASIR GUDANG CIRCUIT AT HYRAX OIL MEGALAP TIME ATTACK ROUND 5 2012
Team Kazama Powered By DRIVE M7 have set the official fastest ever recorded street car laptime at the classically challenging Pasir Gudang circuit in Johor Bahru with a time of 1m 44.861s at Hyrax Oil MegaLAP Time Attack 2012 Round 5 Pasir Gudang which was held on 7 October 2012.
Hyrax Oil MegaLAP Time Attack Pasir Gudang is the first ever time attack event to take place at the venerable but much loved Johor Circuit, with its 12 high-speed corners and flowing circuit layout challenging the 55 drivers and teams as they pounded away to become the fastest ever cars at Pasir Gudang. Participating vehicles ranged from a string of Volvo 240s to a stunning Porsche Cayman S, with entries from KL, JB, and Singapore.
Team Kazama Powered By DRIVE M7’s driver Lai Wee Sing set the blistering time with their heavily-tuned Honda Civic FD2 Type-R which won top honours in the Pro-FF category for Street-tuned cars running semi-slick tyres. The team were also entered in the 9tro Clubsprint VTEC & Turbo category for tuned Street-tuned cars on street tyres, the car proving to be unbeatable with a best time of 1m 45.780s.
Lai Wee Sing, or affectionately known as “Ah-Lai” mentions, “We set-up the car to run on the new Hankook RS3 tyres for the Clubsprint category, but during the event day when we initially swapped to the Yokohama A050 semi-slick tyres the handling balance was off and we were not able to go any much quicker.” After setting a ‘banker’ in the 1st session, the team adapted and only ran the A050s at the front for the 2nd Pro-FF session which resulted in their best time. Both driver and team are Johor Bahru locals.
In the Open 2WD category Kesavamoorthy Ayyavu of Ayyavu Jr. Racing Team in his Honda Integra DC5 Type-R took top spot with a best time of 1m 47.949s, just ahead of Singaporean Jonathan Xie of SK Garage.
Pro-RWD category saw high-powered sports cars taking to the circuits tortuous curves, with eventual winner Nick Mah setting a best time of 1m 54.929s in his Porsche Cayman S.
With a total of 18 entries, the special category created for VolvoRacers Club saw intense action as these most unassuming of Time Attack machines belted around the circuit at astonishing speeds. Fastest Volvo of the day was an S70 driven by Ghazi Fawwaz with a time of 2m 01.903s.
The MegaLAP Time Attack 2012 Grand Finale will take place at Sepang International Circuit on 1st December 2012 with a night Time Attack from 7pm till 11pm, together with a dance party by reknown organisers TWELVE running from 3:00 pm till 1:00 am on the Pit Rooftop. Tickets and details available from the MegaLAP.com website.
