Johor Bahru, Malaysia - Over the weekend, Team 9tro joined up with Bilstein Malaysia (Autofuture) and participated in a massive supercar gathering that took place in Johor Bahru (JB), Malaysia. The focus of the meet was to convoy from Era Maju - a massive automotive garage in the heart of JB - to Forest City, a satellite city located at the western tip of the Malaysian peninsular, just 2km across from Singapore.
Forest City is being hailed as a next generation development combining residential, commercial and industrial entities into a single location - essentially becoming a self-sustaining landmark of its own. While the group of man-made islands are still being developed though, the first island, that’s closest to mainland is fully functional and houses a huge city showroom that maps out the development’s future plans.
It is this main showroom that marks the end point in the Era Maju convoy. The day started off bright and early at Era Maju with over 55 supercars ranging from Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches to even Rolls Royce and Hummers turning up for the convoy. The guys at Era Maju catered breakfast and sponsors like Bilstein were on site with their vehicles joining the massive fleet that left for lunch at one of the many five-star hotels in the area before making their way to Forest City.
Over at Forest City, Bilstein together with a several other sponsors had booths set up inside the huge Forest City Showroom area. On display at Bilstein’s booth were demo units of Bilstein’s patented twin-tube suspension with Bilstein technical advisors who were on hand to assist and share more information about Bilstein Suspension systems.
